Torterra is a big, heavy, quadrupedal Pokémon that looks like a tortoise and has a huge shell covering its back. On the top of the shell, there is a solitary oak-like tree and three triangular, rocky extensions that resemble mountain peaks. Next to the tree is an area of brown that resembles earth. A white ring surrounds the shell and continues in a diamond shape on the front. Torterra’s body looks to be divided into two halves, with the top half green and the bottom half brown. It has a jagged mouth, giving it the appearance of a snapping turtle. It has a black nose as well. It has a green lower jaw and two enormous spikes projecting from its cheeks. Torterra has tiny, crimson eyes that are surrounded by a black ring. Its legs are thick, and each has four toes that look like jagged stones. There are three front toes and one heel toe.

Torterra’s huge and pristine shell sustains the life of many tiny Pokémon, which congregate and construct their nests on it on occasion. Some are even born there and spend their whole lives. Torterra migrates in groups in search of pure water, giving the appearance of shifting woods. It is, however, usually stationary. The ancients thought that under the earth lived a massive Torterra.
