Chewtle (Japanese: カムカメ Kamukame) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves into Drednaw starting at level 22.

Biology

Chewtle is a quadrupedal teal turtle-like Pokémon with a large head bigger than its body. The top of its shell is a darker shade of blue with a brown trim, and it has a light brown underbelly similar to Squirtle and its evolved forms. Chewtle has what appears to be a single toe or claw at the ends of each foot. It has an orange bulb on each of its cheeks and a short rock-hard orange horn on the top of the head, which it uses to stun its opponents and open them for attack. It has a pair of nostrils directly above its mouth, and a pair of small eyes with a black rim directly above that, with a single large brow, giving it an almost angry look.

Inside Chewtle's mouth is a dark orange tongue and a single large tooth, the latter of which it can use to bite down hard on targets, not letting them go. It can even hang on from low heights for a period of time using just its teeth. Chewtle snaps at anything in front of it because of an itch of its teething. Sometimes it bites at another Chewtle's horn, causing the two Chewtle to fight. There is a popular children's game involving Chewtle. The game involves children lifting Chewtle holding onto a stick and seeing which one can hold onto the stick the longest.

Prior to Generation IX, Chewtle and its evolved form, Drednaw, were the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Jaw Lock.

Chewtle evolves into Drednaw.
