Blastoise is a Water type Pokémon, so it's at an advantage against Charizard but at a disadvantage against Venusaur. It much prefers Defense over Offense, but can easily dish out damage if needed.
Blastoise has superior Defensive stats compared to the other two starters, and prefers utilizing defense over offense in battle. Its base stats are an impressive 105 Special Defense and 100 Physical Defense. The source of the excellent Defense is its sturdy shell, which Blastoise can hide inside when attacked, and it can use Rapid Spin to deflect attacks that come its way. When charging for Skull Bash, its Defense raises, allowing it to raise its defense and then deal massive damage. It can also use Rain Dance to boost the power of water attacks while weakening Fire attacks and SolarBeam. But its best trick is Iron Defense, a steel type move that doubles its Defense in one move, allowing it to survive almost anything.
Besides its tanking ability, Blastoise can use Skull Bash, a Normal type move with a power of 130, that takes a turn to charge, or Bite, a Dark type move used to chomp on foes and make them flinch. Its cannons can launch a dual Hydro Pump, a powerful Water attack with 120 power. On top of that, Blastoise's water cannons can, regardless of the attack, easily punch through steel. According to Wizard, by comparing Blastoise's cannons to his actual size, we can tell that his Hyrdo Pump has a power greater than 90,000 PSI (or Pounds per Square Inch).
Blastoise is extremely defensive, can tank hits repeatedly without faltering, and he can raise it even more with several moves. His attack suffers from this, of course, but that doesn't really matter when Blastoise uses Hydro Pump, since heavy damage is done to whatever's in his way.
