"Its entire body is shielded by a steel-hard shell. What lurks inside this shell is a total mystery."
Chalk another pun-tastic name up for the team at Game Freak, but Forretress is built like a freaking fortress. But what makes it even more interesting is that it not only has much better stats than Pineco, but it also has a wider variety of moves, including numerous ones that use its body as a weapon. In the anime, Brock's use of Forretress proved how strong the Pokemon could be.
Forretress' Basic Attacks are Bug Bite and Struggle Bug, while its Special Attacks are Earthquake, Heavy Slam and Rock Tomb.
