Turtwig

Art by Ken Sugimori from Diamond and Pearl.

Turtwig (Japanese: ナエトル Naetle) is a grass-type Pokémon in Pokémon Platinum, as well as Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl.


Turtwig evolves into Grotle at level 18, which evolves into Torterra at level 32.

Along with Chimchar and Piplup, it is one of the three possible starter Pokémon from the Sinnoh region.


AppearanceEdit

AppearanceEdit

Turtwig has the characteristics of a tortoise or turtle. The large lower jaw relates it to a snapping tortoise. A seedling grows out of the top of its head, and its body is covered by an earthen shell. It is mainly a light green color, but has yellow feet and lower jaw. Its shell is brown with a thick black stripe and rim. Turtwig has yellow eyes. As with most first stage Pokémon, Turtwig has a large head and a small body.


Gendar DifferencesEdit

Turtwig has no difference based on gender.


Shiny DifferencesEdit

A shiny Turtwig is mainly a sea blue color, rather than light green.


Game DataEdit

Pokédex EntryEdit

The shell on its back is made of soil. On a very healthy Turtwig, the shell shoud feel moist.


Game LocationEdit

Turtwig is given to the player by Professor Rowan on Route 201 near the start of the game.
