Turtwig (Japanese???? Naetle) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves into Grotle starting at level 18, which evolves into Torterra starting at level 32.

Along with Chimchar and Piplup, Turtwig is one of three starter Pokémon of Sinnoh available at the beginning of Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.

Biology

Turtwig is a small, light green, quadruped Pokémon resembling a turtle or tortoise. Its eyes, feet, and lower jaw are yellow. Its body is covered by a brown shell that is composed of earth. The shell has a thick black stripe and a black rim. On a very healthy Turtwig, the shell should feel moist. A small seedling grows on a brown patch on its head. This seedling will wilt if the Pokémon becomes thirsty. As a plant-based Pokémon, Turtwig usually nourishes itself through photosynthesis. It also drinks water, which hardens its soil-based shell. Due to its status as a starter Pokémon, a wild Turtwig is hard to come by and it is generally found under the ownership of Trainers.

Ash obtained his Turtwig in Gettin' Twiggy With It!. It eventually evolved in Aiding the Enemy!, and again in The Fleeing Tower of Sunyshore!.

Other

Turtwig made its debut appearance in Following a Maiden Voyage. It was a starter Pokémon Professor Rowan was giving out. It had a relaxing nature and it was eating almost the whole time and was oblivious to the fight going on between Chimchar and Piplup. However, it appeared to be afraid of Rowan, as seen when he glared at it and it panicked. A Turtwig owned by Rowan also appears in SS024.

The Gym Leader Gardenia has a Turtwig that first appeared in The Grass-Type is Always Greener!. It was used in the Gym battle against Ash in The Grass Menagerie. It defeated Staravia, but lost to Ash's Turtwig.

Minor appearances

Another Turtwig appeared in Dawn of a New Era!. It was under the ownership of a Trainer at the Pokémon Center.

Another Turtwig also appeared in Classroom Training!. A young boy was using it at the Trainers' School to battle a Chimchar.

One also appeared in Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade.

Multiple Turtwig appeared in Alexa's magazine in The Journalist from Another Region! alongside Grotle and Torterra.

A Turtwig appeared as a plush toy in A Jolting Switcheroo!.

Other appearances

Trophy information

"A Tiny Leaf Pokémon. Despite its animal appearance, Turtwig actually has vegetation sprouting from its head. The shell on its back is made of soil and hardens when it drinks water. Much like a plant, Turtwig performs photosynthesis, absorbing sunlight and making oxygen. It also relies heavily on water to keep its plant healthy and thus spends a lot of time near lakes. Turtwig evolves into Grotle."
