Blastoise (Japanese: カメックス Kamex) is a Water-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Wartortle starting at level 36. It is the final form of Squirtle. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Blastoise using the Blastoisinite.

Blastoise is the version mascot of the Japanese and international versions of Pokémon Blue, appearing on the boxart of both.

Biology

Blastoise is a large, bipedal tortoise-like Pokémon. Its body is dark blue and is mostly hidden by its tough, brown shell. This shell has a pale yellow underside and a white ridge between the upper and lower halves, which also encircles the arms. Two powerful water cannons reside in the top sides of its shell. These cannons can be extended or withdrawn and can be used to assist in high-speed charges. Blastoise's head has triangular ears which are black on the inside, small brown eyes, and a cream-colored lower jaw. Its arms are thick and striated with three claws on each hand. Its feet have three claws on the front and one on the back. It has a stubby tail.

As Mega Blastoise, it develops two smaller shells over its arms, each with their own water cannon. The two cannons on its back are replaced by a single, central water cannon of greater size. This cannon extends forward over Mega Blastoise's head and is said to have a blast range of over 6 miles.[1] Its eyes turn red, and its ears angle backwards. It has a small point on its chin.

The powerful cannons on this Pokémon's back are capable of producing water blasts that can pierce steel and concrete. Blastoise deliberately makes itself heavy to withstand these powerful blasts, and it will crush its opponents with its bulk. The anime has shown that Blastoise can take the role of a leader in large groups of Squirtle and Wartortle. Its preferred habitat seems to be freshwater ponds and lakes.

It was taken away from her by one of Mewtwo's special Poké Balls but was liberated by Ash along with the other confiscated Pokémon. Along with Ash's Charizard and another Trainer's Venusaur, they were the only taken away Pokémon not to be cloned: this could be because Mewtwo didn't need more than one copy of each Pokémon and it already had their clones.

Trophy information

"Blastoise is the next evolutionary step after Wartortle. The thick jets of water they shoot from the cannons on their backs are strong enough to cut through steel plating. When in danger, they hide inside their armored shells. Blastoise is so popular among Trainers that it's considered the definitive Water-type."

Trivia

  • Blastoise shares its species name with Kabuto and Kabutops. They are all known as the Shellfish Pokémon.
  • In Pokémon Stadium 2, there is a Trainer in the eighth battle of Poké Cup Ultra Ball R-2 who has a Blastoise with both Haze and Mirror Coat. However, it is impossible to breed both of these moves on the same Blastoise until Generation III.
  • Blastoise is the only fully evolved single type Kanto starter (not including the starters in Yellow Version).
  • Mega Blastose has the highest Special Attack base stat of all non-legendary Water-type Pokémon.

Origin

Its design appears to be a mix of a sea turtle and a tortoise, further mixed with aspects of a tank. Blastoise's cannons may have been derived from the functioning tubes found in mussels and some other shellfish, thus its species name.

Name origin

Blastoise's name is a combination of blast (referring to its cannons) and tortoise.

Kamex comes from the Japanese word 亀 kame (tortoise/turtle) and possibly マックス max (maximum).
