Torterra is the Grass/Ground-type Starter Pokémon of the Sinnoh region, evolved from Grotle and Turtwig. Its first appearance in the anime was when Paul, Ash's new rival in Sinnoh region, used one. Usually, a Torterra in the wild has up to a few Pokémon living in the tree on its back; generally small, pre-evolved Pokémon.

Torterra is a huge, four-legged turtle Pokémon. Torterra is mostly dark-green above the midsection. It has a dark-green shell on its back which is rimmed with a white band, its head and part of its body underneath its shell. Underneath its midsection Torterra's body is brown and appears to be wood or dirt, this includes its legs, although the three toes on each foot appear to be composed of rock. Its most noticeable feature is the tree which has evolved/grown from Turtwig's twig and and Grotle's shrub. Three spiked rocks line its back, part of its shell appears to be covered in dirt, which gave the 'Terra' part of its name, meaning 'earth' in Latin. Torterra has a short, pointed tail. It has two silver spikes on either side of its huge head and a black, kite-shaped nose.

Etymology

Torterra is probably named from "Tortoise" and Terra, which means earth in Latin.
