Biology

Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Describing Gigantamax Blastoise's appearance.

Blastoise is a large, bipedal turtle-like Pokémon. Its body is blue and is mostly hidden by its tough, brown shell. This shell has a cream-colored underside and a white ridge encircling its arms and separating the upper and lower halves. Two powerful water cannons reside in the top of shell over its shoulders. These cannons can be extended or withdrawn. Blastoise's head has triangular ears that are black on the inside, small brown eyes, and a cream-colored lower jaw. Its arms are thick, and it has three claws on each hand. Its feet have three claws on the front and one on the back. Poking out of the bottom of its shell is a stubby tail.

The powerful cannons on this Pokémon's back are capable of producing water blasts that can pierce steel and concrete and can be used for high-speed charges. Blastoise deliberately makes itself heavy to withstand these powerful blasts and to crush its opponents. It has two former signature moves, Skull Bash and Hydro Cannon. 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.

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 that can retract into its shell. This cannon extends forward over Mega Blastoise's head and is said to have a blast range of over 6 miles (10 kilometers).[1] Small ridges develop over its now-red eyes and extend to its ears. The ears angle slightly backward and there is a small point on its chin.

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."

Blastoise appears in the background of the Flood Chamber in the Kalos Pokémon League, along with Wailord, Piplup, and Clawitzer. A trophy of Mega Blastoise also exists in both versions.

Trophy information

Blastoise

NA: On a hot summer day, it's great to cool off by playing in a sprinkler. Don't look to Blastoise as a replacement, though—those water jets on its back are extremely powerful and would send you flying. In fact, Blastoise itself is so huge so it doesn't get blown away when it fires. Speaking of fires, Blastoise is better than a fire truck at putting them out!

PAL: Tempted to have a Blastoise hose the mud off your bike? Well, don't. The water jets from its rocket cannons might look perfect for that, but they'd just blast your bike into oblivion. In fact, the reason Blastoise grow so big and heavy is so they don't get blown away themselves. If your house is on fire, though, feel free to get a Blastoise to help!

Mega Blastoise

NA: Some species of Pokémon living in Kalos have the ability to Mega Evolve, and here's one! Mega Blastoise is a bit bigger than Blastoise, and instead of two cannons on its shell, it has one huge cannon. This may seem like a downgrade, but wait–there are two on its arms! This math is easy: three is better than two.

Mega Blastoise is a bit bigger than Blastoise, and instead of two cannons on its shell, it has one huge cannon. This may seem like a downgrade, but wait - there are two on its arms, too! Basic arithmetic: three is better than two.

Trivia

  • Blastoise shares its category with Kabuto and Kabutops. They are all known as the Shellfish Pokémon.
  • Early concept art for a Pokémon called "Karabajio" resembles Blastoise without its signature water cannons. The name may be a combination of "carapace" and Caravaggio.
  • Mega Blastoise is the only Mega-Evolved form of a Starter Pokémon that is not dual-type.

Origin

Blastoise's design appears to be a turtle 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 category.

Name origin

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

Kamex may be a combination of 亀 kame (tortoise/turtle) and マックス max (maximum).
