Adamantoise

This long-running turtloid has had many manglings of its English name. With its spiky shell it has a very high defense against physical attacks. It often appears near the end of the game.

CP: Of the great shelled titantoises, the strain with the shell of the hardest metal is the adamantitan. The naturally-occuring adamantite that forms its shell cannot be manufacted, making the creature famouse among metalworkers. They are remarkable for the slowness of their growth, requiring several thousands of years to reach maturity.
