-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.

Its cannons could also serve to knock down prey out of the water as the archerfish does.

Tbh. If pokemon were real, then humans would not give these starters to 10 year olds

Because reason: bulbasaur could poison the kid, charmander can burn the kid and squirtle can drown the kid

I think they would give them to people who are 19 years old because at that age you know what to touch and what not to touch,

And fire types should be ilegal to all ages cause you can easily kill someone with that

So i am just glad that pokemon aren't a real thing :D

Er, maybe you've already been asked this, but why is blastoise your lest favorite of the original starters?  And why do you dislike Swampert even more?  Just curious.

well, in the defense of that (although I would normally be inclined to agree) is that the outter flessh is probably rather hard due to scales thick muscle tissue etc.
but yeah legit!
