Torkoal (Japanese: コータス Kootasu) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Torkoal is a rust-red tortoise whose black shell has seven coal vents.

Natural abilities

It digs through mountains in search of coal, which it stuffs in the vents and burns inside its shell for energy. The vents can be used to blow out volcanic ash when Torkoal is in danger or angry, providing a smokescreen for its retreat. It may also blow smoke through its nostrils, sounding very like a locomotive. It consumes extra coal to prepare for a battle, but grows weaker as its fire dies down.

Evolution

Torkoal does not evolve.

Appearances

Anime

In the anime series, Torkoal is voiced by Shin-ichiro Miki in Japanese and by Maddie Blaustein and later Billy Beach in English after she passed away. Ash's Torkoal was found being picked on by Steel-type Pokémon.

Ash battled the final member of the Battle Pyramid using his Torkoal. Torkoal lost to Brandon's Registeel. They rematched several times before Ash's victory.

Trivia

  • Torkoal has the highest Defense base stat of all Fire-types.
  • It is tied with Slugma and Litwick for the lowest Speed base stat of all Fire-types.

Origin

Torkoal is based on a tortoise with some elements of furnaces and stoves.

Etymology

Torkoal's name is the portmanteau of "tortoise" and "coal".
