==Biology==
Turtwig is an Pokémon and appears to be a green tortoise/turtle Pokémon with a small brown "horn" on its head. On the "horn" are two green leaves. It has large yellow eyes and its face is oddly shaped. On the bottom of the face there is a yellow mouth in an obtuse shape, similar to a Snapping Turtle. Also on its face it has two tiny nostrils. It has four small stubby feet, so it can't move as fast, and on the bottom of its feet are an obtuse area of yellow towards the bottom of the feet. It also has a shell on its back. The shell is brown with black on the bottom and a few stripes.

==In the Anime==
 
[[File:Pokemon222.jpg|thumb|Turtwig with Pikachu in anime.]]
 
Turtwig is used by Ash in the [[Sinnoh]] Region. It could learn [[Tackle]], [[Withdraw]], [[Absorb]], [[Razor Leaf]], [[Curse]], [[Bite]], [[Mega Drain]], [[Leech Seed]], [[Synthesis]], [[Crunch]], [[Giga Drain]], and [[Leaf Storm]]. Later in the series, Ash's Turtwig evolved into [[Grotle]], but this made it hard for [[Ash]] to train it, due to a lack of speed. Afterwards, [[Paul's Torterra]] teaches [[Grotle]] how to fight with reduced [[speed]]. [[Ash]] later uses this strategy there on. It soon evolves into Torterra at Sunyshore City during another battle with Team Rocket.
 
 
It is set to reappear in the Pikachu short airing along with the 15th Pokémon movie.
