Description: A tall, blue turtle with massive cannons coming from the top of its shell, Blastoise is the final evolution of the Kanto Water Starter, Squirtle. Its cannons can be withdrawn entirely into its shell, but the rest of its body cannot. Blastoise is capable of firing water from its cannons with enough force to pierce concrete or even steel. Rarely found in the wild, Blastoise prefer freshwater ponds and lakes, and tend to lead groups of Squirtle and Wartortle.

Capable of Mega Evolution, Mega Blastoise has two smaller shells on its arms where smaller cannons are mounted. The cannons on its back, however, are replaced by a much larger, single cannon. This larger cannon is capable of firing over six miles. It also has ridges over top its dark red eyes.

Blastoise is also capable of Gigantamaxing. While little is known about Blastoise’s Gigantamax form, it does seem to have many cannons all around its shell. This new Gigantamax form will be available with the Isle of Armor DLC coming in June of 2020.
