Those wee slugs were downright cute when they were young, but once they've evolved... it's a different story. These enormous slugs use their massive pseudopodia to get around, and prefer to play in mud. Once evolved, Toritodon gains a Ground type, negating damage from Electric-type attacks but doubling the effectiveness of Grass-type attacks. If it weren't such a useful technique, we'd be bored with it by now, after Wooper, Barboach and Marshtomp pulled the same trick.

Toritodon learns the new attack "Muddy Stream," a Water attack as powerful as Surf, with the added bonus of lowering the enemy's accuracy. Are the days of Surf's dominance finally numbered?
