I LOVE TORTERRA! Also, for a lvl 100, 205 speed isnt that high. Anyway, Torterra is Awesome. I think people don't like him because theyve never had one. They Chose Infernape or Empoleon because all they had ever heard about torterra was that he was slow. They don't know about his AWESOME ATTAck and MOVESETS. Torterra, in my opinion is the second best starter(guess who ilike better?) and Charizard is third.
Hope this explains why some people might think torterra isnt that good.
