Squirtle and Wartortle both have squirrel-like tails, and Wartortle has those furry ears.
Blastoise just gets rid of both of these traits in favor of cannons coming out of its shell.
It's a really plain and boring design, and the cannons don't make any sense.
It's funny, because I remember that sometime during Gen 4 I looked back at Blastoise and thought, "huh, those cannons are really out of place in Pokemon." I don't think a newer design could get away with something crazy like that anymore. Goes to show you how we much we used to take Pokemon designs at face value... --- [Este mensaje fue borrado al deseo del dueno]
During battle Oshwatt rips off its seashell appendage. It totally grosses me out. Its freckles don't do it any favours either. --- I got into game design because I loved kids. I wanted to make them happy and give them something fun to do. Now I want them all to die. ~ game designer Totality
