Blastoise is a Water-type Pokémon that first appears in Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Green Version (outside of Japan as Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version). It is the final form of Squirtle, evolving from Wartortle at level 36. As of Generation VI, Blastoise is capable of Mega Evolving into Mega Blastoise.

In the Super Smash Bros. series, Blastoise only appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee. When it is summoned, it attacks with Hydro Pump, which has it firing blasts of water from the cannons on its shoulders that push away opponents. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Blastoise is pushed back after each shot. In addition, Blastoise appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, whereas a Mega Blastoise trophy appears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

According to a datamine, Blastoise was meant to be playable in the Pokémon Trainer's trio, but it was replaced by Squirtle to balance the size and evolutionary stages of the Pokémon.

Trophy information[edit]

Blastoise is the next evolutionary step after Wartortle. The thick jets of water they shoot from the cannons on their backs are strong enough to cut through steel plating. When in danger, they hide inside their armored shells. Blastoise is so popular among trainers that it's considered the definitive Water-type.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

Mega Blastoise MegaBlastoiseTrophy3DS.png Some of the species of Pokémon living in Kalos have the ability to Mega Evolve, and here's one! Mega Blastoise is a bit bigger than Blastoise, and instead of two cannons on its shell, it has one huge cannon. This may seem like a downgrade, but wait–there are two on its arms! This math is easy: three is better than two.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

On a hot summer day, it's great to cool off by playing in a sprinkler. Don't look to Blastoise as a replacement, though–those water jets on its back are extremely powerful and would send you flying. In fact, Blastoise itself is so huge so it doesn't get blown away when it fires. Speaking of fires, Blastoise is better than a fire truck at putting them out.
