Found inside of volcanoes, Turtonators feed upon sulfur and other materials found within or near volcanic craters. Some of this - primarily sulfur - is then passed on to its shell, giving it a layer of explosive material. This protects the creature, as anything striking the shell will cause sparks to fly from the horned protrusions of the shell to ignite an explosion. The species uses camouflage to disguise itself as a rock within the craters that make up their home and acts as a sort of mine should prey step upon its back by striking its own shell with its tail. The explosive blasts triggered from its back are released through an orifice in the midsection of the animal's ventral side; Turtonators must protect this spot as it is their weak point, and damage to this stomach area will invariably cause it great suffering and injury.
They have Shell Armor that protects it from critical injury. It can also set out a Shell Trap, which can be set off by a rival attacking Pokémon should it immediately attack the Turtonator. This will cause the trap to be sprung and cause a significant explosive blast.
