Trivia

  • It's the heaviest of all of the mid-evolution starter Pokémon.

Origin

Grotle is based on a turtle or tortoise with foliage growing from its shell.

Etymology

Grotle probably got its name from "Ground" and "Turtle", or alternatively, "Grotto", and "Turtle". Or another alternative is "Grow" and "Turtle" due to plants ability to photosynthesize.
