Totodile (Japanese: ワニノコ Waninoko) is the Water-type Starter Pokémon of the Johto region.

Biology

Appearance

Totodile is a small Pokémon that appear as bipedal crocodiles. While most of a Totodile's body is blue, they have a yellow, v-shaped marking across their chest, red eyes, and red spikes that go down its back to its tail. These Pokémon are well known for their large mouths, filled with razor sharp teeth.

The shiny version of this Pokémon appears as having green or turquoise skin instead of blue and has dark blue spikes, which were previously red, along its back.

Behavior

Totodile are very energetic, cheerful and rowdy, and occasionally can be seen running through swampy areas, biting and chomping at everything that moves.

Special abilities

All Totodile have the ability Torrent, which enables Water-type attacks to do 150% damage if the user's HP is below 30%.

Additionally, Totodile have very large and powerful jaws, and mainly are used when in battle. The Pokédex states that "its well-developed jaws are powerful and capable of crushing anything".

Evolution

Totodile evolves into Croconaw at level 18 and and into Feraligatr starting at level 30.

Appearances

In the anime

Totodile debuted in the Pokémon Anime during the episode Don't Touch That 'dile, where a Totodile belonging to Professor Elm was stolen by Team Rocket. It was later recovered and returned.

Main article: Ash's TotodileAsh captured a Totodile in the episode The Totodile Duel, where Ash and Misty battled for a Totodile that one of them caught. Not knowing whose Lure Ball captured the Pokémon, the two have a Pokémon battle to decide who keeps it. Ash won the battle, receiving the Totodile.

This Pokémon stayed with Ash during the course of his travels throughout the Johto Region, and is currently being kept at Professor Oak's Lab.

Much later in the series, a Totodile made a small appearance in the episode Up Close and Personable! at the Pokémon Summer Academy. As shown in a movie poster, Totodile along with the other two Johto Starter Pokémon, will appear in the 12th Pokémon movie.

Totodile also appears the episode "DP143: An egg Scramble". It appears as Khoury's Pokémon.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Silver stole a Totodile from Professor Elm. It refused to return when Gold attempted to bring it back to Prof. Elm. It soon evolved into a Croconaw after defeating a trap together with Gold's Cyndaquil in the Sprout Tower.

Name origins

Its English name comes from combining the words "Tot" and "Crocodile". Its Japanese name comes from "wani" which is Japanese for crocodile, and "ko'" meaning child. That suggests that it is the first evolutionary form.
