Trivia

  • Strangely, in Gold and Silver, Forretress is shown with a gray shell. In Crystal, it was then changed to a light purple shell. This lasted until X and Y where its shell changed back into its gray color.

Origin

Foretress is based on a bagworm and a tank or military fortress. Its shell also resembles that of a tree nut, which are sometimes inhabited by bagworms.

Etymology

Foretress come from forest, fortress, turret (something that shoots) and ferrous (Latin for iron).
