Wartortle (Japanese: カメール Kameil) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

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

Biology

Wartortle inside its shell while spinning

Wartortle is a bipedal, indigo reptilian Pokémon similar to a turtle. It has brown eyes, a dark blue streak on each cheek, and two sharp teeth protruding from its upper jaw. It has three clawed fingers and pointed toes. On each side of its head are feather-like ears covered in pale blue fur. A brown shell with a pale yellow underside encases its body. A thick, white rim separates the upper and lower halves of the shell. An older Wartortle may have scars and algae growing on its shell. Poking out of the bottom of the shell is a thick, wavy tail that also has light blue fur and cannot be fully withdrawn into its shell. Its tail fur will darken with age. Its tail is a popular symbol of longevity and good luck, making this Pokémon popular with the elderly.

Because they are larger than Squirtle and have a larger shell, Wartortle have a more difficult time walking on land and keeping their balance in the water. To maintain balance while swimming at high speeds, Wartortle moves its furry ears and tail as both rudders and balancing rods. Air can be stored in its fur for extended underwater diving. It hides in water when hunting and emerges to surprise its prey. The anime has shown that Wartortle can be found living in colonies on islands, but its preferred habitat seems to be freshwater ponds and lakes. As shown in Pokémon Sleep, is known to sleep with its body tucked into its shell while remaining wary of threats [1]. It leaves its long, furry tail poking out a bit to feel out its surroundings in case of danger.

In Generation II, Skull Bash was its signature move, but other Pokémon could still inherit it via breeding.

Evolution

Wartortle evolves from Squirtle and evolves into Blastoise.

Trivia

Anime promotional art depicting Wartortle with the same color on its ears and its face
  • Even though Wartortle's ears are depicted lighter than its face in the official Sugimori stock art and most of its game sprites, early promotional pictures portrayed its ears the same color as its face.

Origin

Wartortle's design appears to be a stylized turtle. Its feathery tail is a reference to Japanese legends of the minogame (蓑亀), a turtle which lived for 10,000 years and grew a tail made of seaweed. The use of its tail to store oxygen seems to be a reference to certain turtles that breathe through their cloaca, placed near the tail. The tail also resembles wind waves.

Name origin

Wartortle may be a combination of war or warrior, water, tortoise, and turtle.

Kameil may be a combination of 亀 kame (turtle, tortoise) and tail.
