Squirtle is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It is one of the three starter Pokémon of Kanto along with Charmander and Bulbasaur. Squirtle is also known as the 'Tiny Turtle Pokémon'.

Squirtle is a popular starter Pokémon, perhaps due to the fact that the first Gym is a Rock-type Gym, and Squirtle therefore is very effective against it.

How to Obtain

Squirtle can be given by Professor Oak as a Starter Pokémon or by purchasing the 'Kanto Starters' gamepass. Owning it will enable a 16% chance to find Squirtle at Route 1.

It can also be obtained from trading and the Pokémon Roulette .

There is a code, 'SpookyScary', that gives a squirtle named Shivers with a skeletal aura, although the code is now expired.


Squirtle evolves into Wartortle at level 16.
