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 turtle-like Pokémon with a large teal head bigger than its body. The top of its shell is a darker shade of blue with a brown trim, with a light brown underbelly, similar to Squirtle and its evolved forms. It has what appears to be a single toe or claw at the ends of each foot. Chewtle has an orange bulb on each of its cheeks, a darker tongue, and a short horn on the top of the head, which it uses to stun its opponents and open them for attack. It has a single large tooth in its mouth, which it can use to bite down hard on targets. It has a pair of nostrils directly above the 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.

Chewtle snaps at anything in front of it because of an itch of its teething. It is known to attack first with its horn, flinching them before biting down and not letting go.

Chewtle and its evolution are the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Jaw Lock.

Major appearances

Chewtle debuted in The Climb to Be the Very Best!. Team Rocket encountered it while in Wyndon when it bit onto Jessie's hair. Upon learning that it can evolve into Drednaw, they decided to present it to Giovanni. In Kicking It from Here Into Tomorrow!, Chewtle emerged from the Rocket Prize Master, and Jessie used it to battle Ash and Goh before the trio was sent blasting off. It later battled Goh's Scorbunny, only to be defeated when it evolved into a Raboot. It has since made further appearances in Pokémon Journeys: The Series.

Minor appearances

A Trainer's Chewtle appeared in Toughing It Out!.

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
JN013 Chewtle Team Rocket's Rotom Phone Chewtle, the Snapping Pokémon. A Water type. When Chewtle evolves, it becomes Drednaw. Yeah, right. I don't believe it.

Pokémon: Twilight Wings

In Early-Evening Waves, Nessa owned a Chewtle, as seen on a magazine. It is unclear if this Chewtle is her Drednaw in the present day.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

A Dynamaxed Chewtle appeared in the Sword & Shield chapter during the Darkest Day.
