did get in a lot of hits on Torterra
, but damage? I hardly doubt that. Torterra proved back at the episode where Grotle
evolved that it was all about defense. Torterra doesn't care for dodging moves. He's able to take a lot attacks without really taking much damage at all, which he has proven quite a lot of times. The only thing that really bothered it was the after-effect from using Frenzy Plant. Gligar
's moves never seemed to have any real damage on it.
Torterra isn't unbeatable, but I don't see how it, after proving a lot of times how extremely powerful it is, would go down to Ash's Infernape
. It never really seemed to be damaged at all when it fought Ash at Lake Acuity, it took down both Croagunk
on its own, AND it proved that it was able to take quite a lot of attacks from Gliscar without really being damaged at all. And once again, its battle against Garchomp
also proved quite a lot. Infernape didn't stand a chance againt Flint's Infernape, yet Paul was actually able to damage and TRAP Garchomp, a Pokémon that is even stronger than Flint's Infernape.
