Wartortle (Japanese: カメール Kameil) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Squirtle starting at level 16, and evolves into Blastoise starting at level 36.

Biology

Physiology

Wartortle are bipedal, indigo-blue turtle-like Pokémon with brown shells and long, furry tails and ears. Wartortle has small fangs protruding out of its mouth, brown irises, and three sharp claws on its arms. To maintain balance while swimming at high speeds, Wartortle move their unusual furry ears and tails. This tail, covered in rich, angelic thick fur, is so long that it sticks out a bit even when Wartortle withdraw into their shell. They use the fur to store air for extended underwater diving. As a Wartortle ages, algae may grow on its shell, and the color of its tail fur deepens.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Wartortle can spit water out of its mouth at higher speeds than Squirtle. It can swim faster, as well. However, being bigger they are a little less maneuverable out of the water than Squirtle. Its shell also provides a great defense.

Behavior

Wartortle are loyal to their trainers. They are also more aggressive than Squirtle. They tend to hide in water when hunting and emerge to surprise their prey. They are known to be very tough Pokémon that often have scratches on their shell which serve as reminders of past battles. They are conceived to be a popular pet, as they are long-lived. Wartortle, and in particular their tails, are considered a symbol of longevity. It is said that this Pokémon can live for up to 10,000 years, although this is likely a myth.

Habitat

Wartortle can be found living on island beaches near the ocean, but their preferred habitat seems to be freshwater ponds and lakes. They are most commonly found in Kanto region.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

While it can feed on the usual omnivorous diet most Pokémon have, Wartortle mostly feeds on aquatic plants and small creatures.

In the anime

Major appearances

May's Wartortle

May's Squirtle has evolved into a Wartortle by Staging a Heroes Welcome. May entered it in the appeal round of the Wallace Cup.

Other

Wartortle's debut appearance was in Beach Blank-Out Blastoise where a group of Wartortle and Squirtle were troubled by their leader, a Blastoise, not waking up.

Another group of Wartortle are part of a fire-fighting squad. Team Wartortle work alongside Team Squirtle and Team Blastoise depending on which evolutionary form is best for the situation. Ash's Squirtle joined Team Wartortle to prove its strength in The Pokémon Water War. Team Wartortle later went up against the Squirtle Squad - this time with the opponents being led by Ash's Squirtle - in a fire-fighting competition in The Fire-ring Squad.

A Wartortle was owned by a teenager named Jimmy in Judgement Day. The Wartortle evolved into a Blastoise to free itself and Jimmy's Ivysaur and Charmeleon from Team Rocket.

Minor appearances

A Wartortle was used by one of the students of the Pokémon Trainer's School in Gonna Rule The School!.

Trivia

  • Even though Wartortle's ears are depicted lighter than its face in the official Sugimori stock art and most of its game sprites, the official promotional pictures usually have the ears the same color as its face.

Origin

Its design appears to be a stylized turtle. However, some have theorized that it draws inspiration from squirrels since its ears and tail resemble those of the Red Squirrel.

Name origin

Wartortle's name is a combination of war, tortoise, and turtle. War may also stand for wart, referring to the abnormal growth that is its new tail. The kame in Kameil comes from the Japanese word for tortoise/turtle, 亀, and may be a combination of 亀 and テール kame and "tail." It is also a corruption of 噛める kameru, to be able to bite.

In other languages

  • German: Schillok - From Schildkröte (turtle) and Locke (curl) or possibly Schillerlocke, a kind of fish delicacy whose name references its own curly appearance.
  • French: Carabaffe - From carapace (shell) and baffe (swipe/slap).
  • Korean: 어니부기 Eonibugi - Portmanteau of sister and turtle.
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 卡咪龜 Kǎ Mī Guī - Transliteration of Wartortle's Japanese name, Kameil. The last character in the name means turtle.
  • Chinese (Hong Kong): 卡美龜 Ka Míi Gui - Probably the same as the Taiwanese name.
