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 game 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 encircling its arms and separating the upper and lower halves. 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 These cannons can be extended or withdrawn and can be used to assist in high-speed charges.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 that 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 (10 km).[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.

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. 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.

Along with Ash's Charizard and another Trainer's Venusaur, they were the only confiscated 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.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

When released from a Poké Ball, Blastoise will use Hydro Pump in one direction. Each Pump moves Blastoise backwards slightly making it a danger to those fighting behind it as well. Blastoise's trophy also refers to Blastoise as the 'Definitive Water Type'.

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."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

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.
  • 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 VI.

Origin

Its 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'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).
