Pokémon Diamond and Pearl’s Grass starter is one of the most popular of the new Pokémon introduced.
Turtwig’s vacant stare and cute looks bely its power - of the starters, Turtwig learns stronger attacks faster than the others, and its Physical and Special potentials are balanced, giving it a variety of moves it can use effectively. Additionally, Turtwig can learn the Dark-typed Bite attack early on, making it a handy dispatcher of Psychic- and Ghost-type Pokémon.
Evolves to Grotle at Level 18.
