"Canisters containing the Toa washed up on the shores of Mata Nui. The Toa had almost no memory of their lives before arriving on Mata Nui.
Pohatu is so immensely strong that he can literally move mountains. He can make massive rocks explode like bombs or roll with great precision towards an attacker. His huge feet contain great power, smashing even the most unyielding stones with a single kick! All the Toa like Pohatu for his kind nature and for his rock-solid dependability. He's slow, but friendly and reliable. He's not good at snap decisions, but when he makes a decision to do something, he stands firm until the end--so DON'T get in his way! Whenever there is trouble, Pohatu will always be there behind you, an immovable force that few enemies can dislodge. His only fear is water: he cannot swim, and he sinks...like a stone. Pohatu inhabits the foothills of Mount Ihu, moving slowly but sure-footedly among the rocks and boulders at the base of the great mountain.
The Toa have been mutated into Toa Nuva, and have since been on adventures to the island of Artakha. They are now in Karda Nui attempting to save the life of the Great Spirit Mata Nui."
