Trading in his adorable overbite for an intimidating grimace, Turtwig evolves into this walking shrubbery. There isn't anything particularly special about Grotle – he's still a pure Grass-type, and naturally has better stats than Turtwig. Being a tortoise and growing as quickly as he is, it's no surprise that Grotle is relatively slower than the other starters at this phase of his development, but he's got a better variety of moves than the others.
Evolves to Torterra at Level 32.
