I’m sure we’ve all had enough of the bullshit: Torterra is obviously getting FP like each of its Grass predecessors.
Now that I’ve belabored the obvious, let’s have a more complex discussion:
Where does Torterra fall in the PvP and PvE meta?
With FP, a functional Attack stat (unlike Meganium), and a functional fast move (unlike Sceptile) does it threaten Roserade for best Grass type? That Ground subtyping hurts in Water type raids (especially Blizzard Kyogre… Yuck) but helps against Rock types, though Rock has a laundry list of Pokemon of other types (MM Metagross, Machamp, etc) which pretty much definitely counter them better.
Torterra also has a pretty large move pool that could be useful for gyms. Earthquake is a horrible move, but getting STAB on it means Torterra could take on, say, Metagross without being forced out, unlike Roserade or Sceptile. There’s Stone Edge if you feel the need to leave Torterra in on Flying or Bug types for some reason. A very cheap cost for a second charged move helps.
In PvP, Torterra is already pretty appealing in at least Great League. I’m notsure about Ultra, though I suspect a likely negative matchup against Giratina, taking a bajillion years to charge Earthquake against Steels and not having much to shield bait with hurts. But, Razor Leaf, FP and a functional Attack stat may give it potential as a nice closer?
Then again, since Razor Leaf is so strong and charges CMs so slowly, is FP redundant? EdgeQuake gets good coverage. Anything weak to Grass just gets mowed down by Razor Leaf anyway, and having extra coverage may be preferred.
