Red and Blue Yellow Gold Silver Crystal
Often hides in
water to stalk
unwary prey. For
swimming fast, it
moves its ears to
maintain balance.
When tapped, this
POKéMON will pull
in its head, but
its tail will
still stick out a
little bit.
It is recognized
as a symbol of
longevity. If its
shell has algae on
it, that WARTORTLE
is very old.
It cleverly con-
trols its furry
ears and tail to
maintain its
balance while
Its long, furry
tail is a symbol
of longevity,
making it quite
popular among
older people.
