The third evolution of Kanto league starter Squirtle, Blastoise’s true strength, is his defense. Edging over the rock type, he can fight his best battle against the likes of Golem, Onix, Geodude, etc (type advantage expected to be added in future updates). Blastoise is one character that everyone has looked forward to since the launch of the game. The evolution of the starter character was not among the 20 Pokemon that were a part of the initial launch.

Even though he is a defender class character, he will not shy from showing off his attacking capabilities. Hydro Typhoon will be one of the strongest attacks players will have up their sleeve with this character. The trailer also gives us a look into his Rapid Spin attack. Although this attack might make him vulnerable and open to counterattacks in situations, his hefty built and tank-like body should be able to withstand major blows.

Besides his own attacks, Blastoise will also be able to perform Surf to help his fellow Pokemon. This move will be similar to the Surf used by Slowbro.
