Grotle (Japanese: ハヤシガメ Hayashigame) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Turtwig starting at level 18, and evolves into Torterra starting at level 32.

Biology

Physiology

Grotle with acorns

The shell possessed by Turtwig has grown to protect Grotle's entire head, back, and short tail, and, along with its change of coloration to yellow, now appears sectioned. Turtwig's sprout has migrated to Grotle's back and grown into full bushes, which may occasionally be seen carrying brown, acorn-like nuts. There are three long, brown ridges on the top of Grotle’s shell. Grotle’s lower jaw is yellow in coloration and has triangular extensions on the cheeks. Grotle’s feet are also colored yellow, with three claws.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Grotle has the ability to sense where pure water wells up.

Behavior

Grotle will sometimes start to roll around in dirt and mud. This allows minerals to seep in and make its shell even harder. Grotle may also carry acorn-like nuts on its bushes.

Habitat

Grotle live in forests, near sources of fresh water.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Much like Turtwig, Grotle nourishes itself through photosynthesis. It may also eat berries like most Pokemon.

In the anime

Grotle made its debut appearance in Aiding the Enemy!, when Ash's Turtwig evolved. To date, no other Grotle has appeared in the anime.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry

This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

Diamond had a Grotle after his Turtwig evolved. Soon after, Diamond's Grotle evolved into a Torterra.

Trivia

  • Grotle is the heaviest of any of the middle evolutions of the starters and heavier than all of the final stages of the starters except for Venusaur, Meganium and Torterra. Interestingly, all of these Pokémon are Grass-type.
  • In the anime, Grotle is said to be slower now that it has evolved. However, Grotle has a higher base Speed than its pre-evolved form.

Origin

Grotle is based on a snapping turtle.

Name origin

"Grotle" comes from grove and turtle. Its Japanese name, Hayashigame, derives from 林 hayashi, grove, and 亀 kame, turtle.
