This Turtonator is a fire/dragon-type Pokémon owned by Kiawe.


Kiawe sent Turtonator to battle three Team Skull Grunts. The grunts' Yungoos and Zubat went to use Bite and Leech Life on Turtonator, whose spikes exploded and hit the Pokémon. To finish them off, Kiawe triggered his Z-Ring and had Turtonator fire Inferno Overdrive, which defeated all of Team Skull's Pokémon, forcing the grunts to retreat.[1] While Kiawe was describing the power of Z-Ring, the group remembered Kiawe's Turtonator executing Inferno Overdrive.[2]

Turtonator, along with its trainer, was at the party to celebrate Ash and his Pokémon's Grand Trial of Melemele Island victory.[3] Kiawe had Turtonator lead the ranch's Pokémon into the stables and even practiced with Turtonator during the night. The next day, per Haru's request, Kiawe had Turtonator battle Ash's Pikachu.[4] Kiawe and Turtonator spent a day on the beach with Kiawe's classmates. Kiawe tended to Turtonator before he was called by Ash and Sophocles.[5]

Kiawe participated in the Pokémon Pancake Race with Turtonator. However, Turtonator was too heavy for Kiawe, who had to pull it in a cart. Kiawe yelled out that they were not fit for the race and even if the race was already over, Kiawe exclaimed he and Turtonator would never give up.[6] The next day, Turtonator watched as Lillie's egg hatched into a white Vulpix and Samson Oak's egg into red Vulpix. While the white one, Shiron, ignored the group, the red one wanted to play with the others. The next day, after Lillie befriended Shiron and hugged it, Shiron was more interested in playing with the class's Pokémon.[7] Kiawe had Turtonator use Flamethrower to train Pikachu, who demonstrated to Rockruff how to dodge. Turtonator repeated the attack, which Rockruff nearly dodged, causing its tail to be lit on fire and to cool down in the sea.[8]

Kiawe was training with Ash, using Turtonator against his Pikachu. The next day, Kiawe sent his Turtonator against Ash's Rockruff (as the latter was trying to search for Electrium Z). Once Ash asked Rotom if it found the Electrium Z, Kiawe was outraged and even had Turtonator use Inferno Overdrive on Ash. Rotom stopped Turtonator's attack and decided to explain everything.[9]
