    Who has the best design?
    Land Turtle.
    Who's better in battle?
    Not Torkoal, that's for sure. Any of the others could possibly win.
    Who would win a battle between them?
    Not Torkoal, for the same reason as above.
    Who's your favorite?
    Turtle with cannons in its back.

    I'm going with Blastoise because I've actually used it. While I think Torterra has a slightly better design, there's nothing wrong with the original turtle's. Plus I've always liked the Squirtle line.
    Abagoura looks cool too, despite having a less-than-stellar type combo. Torkoal I don't really care for (shocking I know.)

    Blastoise.
    xD Torkoal can be Raphael since he's such a hothead.

    Definitely Torterra. Both design-wise and battle-wise.

    A continental turtle is so full of WIN. It has amazing stats and its typing mkaes it have the advantage over the other three turtle Pokemon. It would most certainly win, IMO.

    Great posts people! Looks like Blastoise is really popular.

    As for those mentioning Shuckle... I did consider it, but then decided against it. Shuckle only looks like a turtle, with the same stance, perhaps even a turtle concept behind its design, but it's not a reptilian turtle like the four I picked. As such, I decided to leave it out.

    Yes, I know Blastoise is somewhat of a turtle/hippopotamus mix. But still.

    DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAITOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH! TORTERRA FTW!

    So good that I chose Turtwig for both Pearl AND Platinum. But not Diamond (Piplup says hi).
    Why not Abagoura? It looks like a Riolu bred with a Blastoise. I said this somewhere else, too...
    Why not Blastoise? See above.
    Why not Torkoal? I don't really like Fire-types for some reason.
    Yeah, I write dark stuff sometimes. Birdsong, I Can't See The Light and The Courteous Soldier, if you're interested.

    I like them all in terms of design, but Torterra obviously takes my vote. He pwns all the other turtles, and he's a grass type. An automatic win for me. Torterra was also my starter in Platinum and my third level 100, she helped me a whole bunch in the game. I like its unique typing, movepool, and design, which makes up for its low speed. Since I don't battle competitively, I don't care anyways because it's already at a higher level than anyone in the game.

    Rock Polish makes up for it's slow speed. Just something to think about ;)

    Hard choice between the non-Blastoises, but eventually went with Torterra because he's a grass type.

    I love Blastoise. He's my favorite starter from Gen I, he's the bulkiest and better built for support.

    In second place falls Torterra, I like the mythical desing on him. And Grass/Ground = kickass

    Torterra has a freaking tree on his back. Like a boss. Nuff said.

    I have to vote for Torterra. Design wise, it's the coolest, with the most interesting backstory and origins. Stat wise, while it may come up short in a few places, it makes up for it with it's moves. Movepool wise, it can learn awesome moves that can pretty well own all the other three. Wood Hammer (a gamble, but still very useful), Earthquake (the ever wonderful), Stone Edge (or any Rock move), Rock Polish, Swords Dance, Synthesis (a gamble at times, but still useful) and even Curse can be of a help. It also learns the most diverse moves of the four. Just naturally, it learns Normal, Dark, Grass, Ground, Water (Withdraw), and Ghost (Curse), giving it plenty of options. On top of that, a unique type combo that, while it is a double-edged sword, has good synergy. Due to the Ground-typing, Torterra can learn Rock-type moves, canceling out all four of its weaknesses (Flying, Ice, Bug, Fire), giving Torterra plenty of attacking options. Throw in Rock Polish or Swords Dance and you're well on your way to mowing down all that stands before you.

    Carracosta would be my second place bid. Combine Sturdy with Shell Smash, and you've got a one Mon wrecking team. Plus it looks truer to its species. It also gains good moves, but the best combo is Shell Smash and Sturdy, which sets you up for a beatdown.

    Blastoise, meh, never really liked it. I felt odd, looking at a turtle with cannons on its back. Seemed too Digimon-like (even though they were not in existence yet). While it has the most well-rounded stats, I never really liked its design, and it seemed kinda limited with battling options (at least, until Gen IV came around, then that was a different story). It would probably fair better competitively than the others, but I just don't really see what others see in it. Probably since the origins of the Starter's designs got more interesting as gens rolled by, so I just kinda found Blastoise boring as an end result.

    Torkoal is probably the pits in terms of ranking, but I liked it, especially the happy crier Ash's was. Torkoal just seems to add more zest, especially being a Fire-type. It was well balanced in terms of most of its stats, with Speed obviously the weakest of the weak, and it did learn some impressive moves like Flamethrower, Overheat, Body Slam, Curse (throw those last two together and that will hurt a lot), so I'd rank Torkoal above Blastoise.

    Ranked Order:
    1) Torterra
    2) Carracosta
    3) Torkoal
    4) Blastoise

    So, I vote for Torterra.
