I’ve been listening to some of my favorite Pokemon Diamond and Pearl soundtracks again and ended up drawing my first starter Pokemon!

The Turtwig line will always be one of my favorites.

#387 Turtwig - The shell on its back is made of hardened soil; when it absorbs water, the shell becomes harder. On a very healthy Turtwig, the shell should feel moist. Turtwig performs photosynthesis, absorbing sunlight and making oxygen. The leaf on its head wilts if it is thirsty, so Turtwig relies heavily on water to keep its plant healthy and thus spends a lot of time near lakes.
