-Blastoise- by arvalis -Blastoise- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


Here is the seemingly much anticipated Blastoise. He was always my least favorite of the original three starters, but I'll take him over Swampert any day. The big challenger with a more realistic take on Blastoise is of course, his cannons. After spending some time researching animals that use projectiles, a squid's jet really seem to fit the idea. Blastoise is supposed to be able to aim his cannons and fire water jets to propel himself in a direction, very much like a real life squid. So he intakes large supplies of water through his mouth and stores it in a specialized organ in his chest under the shell. Blastoise primarily eats shellfish, earning his nickname as the shellfish Pokemon, he holds onto a Shellder in this case and blasts water to help him pull it off its rocky home. Squirtles start out primarily aquatic and as they grow they eventually become semi terrestrial and lose their developed swimming tail in favor for a heavier counterweight tail. Wartortles spend much of their time drifting motionlessly after meals to facilitate the tremendous growth, sometimes for months. As a result coral sea fans often take root on them, especially on their head. Also, Krabby is a dick, look at him, being an ass.

Um, I think someone used your art without permission. Even if they asked, they didn't credit it to you anywhere:

I keep thinking this when I look at Blastoise, Did a turtle get drunk one night and came across a tank, then a couple days later blastoise was made, I keep thinking thats how it was made.

Your style is awesome. You even managed to make "real" sense of the cannons. Blastoise will always be my favourite.

 You depict Tynamo as they should have been: a Water/Electric type. And someones about to catch another one of the most useless Pokémon in the kingdom. Again.

 Love all the details, and you really know your biology.

Are you saying that fisht at is about to go hook-line and sinker is a Tynamo? Well, at least it is useless until it evolves. Absolutely pathetic really.

 Jk. No, I talking about that Magikarp. Gyarados at least always pulls his (considerable) weight.

He is my favorite of the kanto starters and also the one with the strongest moves and stats. People think that charizard is the best out of them but blastoise has stronger defense, attack and better moves

I'm not asking what's wrong with Swampert because there's nothing wrong with him (say it with a smart ass attitude). As for Blastoise i was just wondering.

There is nothing. But said he disliked both, and I figured you were being defensive towards Blastoise. Seeing your pic, I was wondering why not Swampert.
