He appeared again in Good Friends, Great Training!, in which he was revealed to have evolved into Wartortle. He first performed a dance with Tierno's other Pokémon, but was later captured by Team Rocket along with Raichu and Ash's Sliggoo. After Team Rocket's plan failed, the Pokémon reunited with their Trainers and Sliggoo evolved into Goodra. Later, Wartortle was used in a Tag Battle alongside Raichu against Pikachu and Goodra. He fought well but lost.
As a Wartortle
He reappeared in Tag Team Battle Inspiration! as a Blastoise, in which he participated in a Tag Battle along with Ash's Pikachu against Shauna's Ivysaur and Serena's Eevee, in an attempt to get the latter Pokémon to overcome its shyness. Blastoise's dancing inspired Eevee to respond with her own dancing, allowing her to evade Blastoise's attacks and land a hit with Swift until Serena called the battle off to practice for her upcoming Pokémon Showcase.
He is a friendly Pokémon that often dances with his Trainer, but can be annoyed if attacked, as shown when Raichu accidentally hit him with Thunderbolt. As a Squirtle, he used his nimble dance moves to outmaneuver his opponents in battle, allowing him to defeat much larger and imposing Pokémon such as Conkeldurr, and giving him an upper hand over Ash's Froakie. He maintained his agility even after evolving into the much more bulky Blastoise.
Blastoise is very loyal to Tierno and shares some personality traits with his Trainer. He is a skillful dancer and he is able to easily mimic Tierno's dance moves.
