Ash's Torterra about to use an attack

Torterra is a large Pokémon that resembles a cross between an ankylosaur and a tortoise. It has a dark-green shell on its back with a white rim and diamond shape, along with a large tree on top. Three spiked rocks also line its back, and part of its shell appears to be covered in dirt. Torterra's body is mostly dark-green above the midsection, but underneath, its body is brown. To keep its balance and support its weight, it has a short, pointed tail and muscular legs tipped with rock-like nails. Torterra also has two silver spikes on both sides of its head, red eyes, and a black, kite-shaped beak.
