Biological characteristics

Blastoise is a very large, blue, bipedal tortoise that can extend cannon-like spouts from the top of its shell with a jaw similar to that of the snapping turtle. The cannons are used to fire blasts of pressurized water at foes, and can spray with enough force to pierce concrete walls and thick steel. They are also highly accurate, allowing Blastoise to hit small targets at distances of over 160 feet. However, Blastoise is unable to aim at short distances[3] as this handicap was shown in the battle between Ash's Charizard and Gary's Blastoise. They can pump out enough water to fill 3 Olympic swimming pools within one minute. In order to withstand the recoil of its fire, Blastoise positions its feet and plants itself with its considerable weight, which it has cultivated for this purpose. The ferocity of its attacks has caused Blastoise to be described as “brutal”, and even its normal attacks, like waterjet-assisted tackles and crushing heavyweight body slams, are completely devastating, even though the creature is reasonably lightweight and fast compared to the "real" heavyweighters of Pokémon. When it does feel threatened by something, it withdraws into its shell for protection. Blastoise is a Pokémon that is very strong, no matter what, and will sacrifice its life to save a trainer. From its appearance, Game Freak created Blastoise to be a special tribute to Nintendo's famous Super Mario bros villain Bowser (Nintendo) & the Koopa[citation needed].

Role

In the video games

Blastoise is often seen as the definitive Water type Pokémon, but is generally less popular than Venusaur or Charizard game-wise, probably because of the abundance of Water-types. In FireRed and LeafGreen, Blastoise is also capable of learning Hydro Cannon, an extremely powerful attack that is essentially a Water-type counterpart to Hyper Beam, from the Cape Brink move tutor. Like Hyper Beam, Hydro Cannon has a very high attack power, but requires skipping one turn of battle after its use. Blastoise is one of only 4 Pokémon[1] which may know the powerful Water-type move. Like all pure Water types, Blastoise has only two weaknesses, Electric and Grass. Fortunately for trainers, Blastoise can learn moves to cover those weaknesses.

Blastoise is also the leader of a Bronze-level rescue team named Team Hydro in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon. His team includes Swampert and Feraligatr, making his team the toughest of all rescue forces found in Makuhita's Dojo. In the game, he forms a temporary rescue team with Octillery and Golem to save Alakazam's team from Magma Cavern, but fails shortly after. Later, he teams up with Charizard from Alakazam's team to explore the Western Cave, but the pair is soundly beaten by Mewtwo after Blastoise accidentally woke the Genetic Pokémon up. He also appears in a cutscene after the player recruits Lugia which leads to another dungeon, Meteor Cave, being unlocked. In addition, other Blastoise can also be encountered by the player in Western Cave, and unlike most other fully evolved Pokemon, can be recruited, but the player's Pokemon must be at an extremely high level and holding the item "Friend Bow", and even then the chances of the player getting a Blastoise to join him/her are extremely low.

Blastoise in the Pokémon Trading Card Game.

Blastoise is the fully-evolved form of the Squirtle that Green stole from Professor Oak in the Pokémon Adventures manga. As Green is terrified of bird Pokémon, she has no Pokémon that Fly, and must use other methods to engage in aerial combat (and for aerial transport).

In the Pokémon Trading Card Game

Blastoise comes close to Charizard as one of the most prolific Pokémon in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, making appearances in the Base Set (included in Base Set 2), Team Rocket (as Dark Blastoise twice, one of which was included in the Legendary Collection), Expedition (three times), Pokémon *VS (as Clair’s Blastoise, a basic Pokémon), The 7th Movie Half Deck (as Shota’s Blastoise, a basic Pokémon), EX FireRed & LeafGreen (as Blastoise EX), the POP3 promo set, and EX Crystal Guardians (as both Blastoise and the Fighting/Steel-type Blastoise δ). Its first appearance in the Base Set was a staple in Water-themed decks, because it has an extremely strong Pokémon Power, Rain Dance (which probably inspired the GB game technique in the second generation.). Rain Dance allows the player to attach as much Water energy as desired to his/her Water Pokémon during his/her turn. (Normally, players are restricted to attaching one Energy card per turn.) Blastoise EX has a similar Poké-Power, Energy Rain, which allows the player to attach Water energy to any of his/her Pokémon, but does 10 damage for each Water energy attached.
