Although I can't say much about torterra without pokebank, why have blastoise and torterra not have gotten shell smash yet? They and their pre evolutions have shells and both have some great defences like most users, yet they don't have it. Also, if they were to get shell smash, would they be useful in competitive?

Smashing the shell of a turtle is usually fatal.Carracosta is an exception since it's shell is made of rock and not organic stuff. Blastoise could probably break it's cannons if you want though :3

Torkoal also has Shell Smash, though. I mean, I agree, I don't think they should be smashing their shells, but I don't think Torkoal should be, either.

It's kind of a weird move, though. Smashing the shell seems like a much more permanent and drastic thing than just a temporary stat buff. Not to mention that it can be done twice.

Cloyster dies every time somebody orders it to use Shell smash then? I can't imagine that thing not dying if it ever discards its shell.
