The '''Squirtle''' is a fictional species of [[Pokémon (character)|Pokémon]] from the ''[[Pokémon]]'' series of video games. Squirtle is numbered ''004'' in the [[National Pokédex]], and is a [[Evolution|Basic Stage]] Pokémon (followed by [[Wartortle]] at level 16 and then [[Blastoise]] at level 36).
+
==Biology==
  +
=== Appearance ===
  +
Squirtle is a small, light-blue Pokémon with an appearance similar to that of a turtle. Like turtles, Squirtle has a shell that covers its body with holes that allow its limbs, tail, and head to be exposed. Unlike a turtle, Squirtle is ordinarily bipedal. 
   
Charmander is a {{Type|Water}} Pokémon. It usually weighs around 9 kilograms (20 lbs) and has a height of 0.5 meters (1'8").
+
=== Special abilities ===
  +
Squirtle has the ability [[Torrent]], which boosts the power of its water type attacks by 150%, if its health drops to 33% or below.
   
== Availability ==
+
Squirtle also has the natural ability to shoot water from its mouth, which is where the bulk of its attacks comes from.
   
A Charmander is a [[Starter Pokémon|starter]] option in [[Pokémon Red]], [[Pokémon Blue]], [[Pocket Monsters Green]], and, more recently, [[Pokémon FireRed]] and [[Pokémon LeafGreen|LeafGreen]].
+
== In the anime ==
  +
[[File:Squirtle Squad.png|thumb|The Squirtle Squad]]
  +
{{main|Ash's Squirtle}}
  +
[[Ash Ketchum]] owns a [[Ash's Squirtle|Squirtle]], which he obtained in the episode ''[[IL012: Here Comes The Squirtle Squad|Here Comes The Squirtle Squad]]''. [[The Squirtle Squad]] was a group of Squirtle that were causing a number of disruptions in a small town. It wasn't until Ash arrived that they turned from doing bad to doing good, by becoming a firefighting squad. The leader then joined Ash, then much later returned to the squad and is currently where it is located. It does come back every now and then, to help Ash in a battle. Additionally, as revealed in the [[IL001: Pokémon - I Choose You!|first episode]], Ash wanted to have a Squirtle as his starter Pokémon.
   
A Squirtle can also be received as a gift in [[Pokémon Yellow]].
+
[[May (anime)|May]] gets a [[May's Wartortle|Squirtle]] on ''[[AG133: The Right Place and the Right Mime|The Place and the Right Mime]]''. While in [[Pallet Town]], the baby Squirtle became attached to May and Professor Oak let her keep it.
   
You can obtain a Charmander in [[Pokémon Gold]], [[Pokémon Silver|Silver]] and [[Pokémon Crystal|Crystal]] by [[trading]] it from Red, Blue, Green or Yellow, or in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire via trading it from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.
+
It was revealed in the episode ''[[JE153: The Ties That Bind|The Ties That Bind]]'' that [[Gary Oak]] chose Squirtle as his starter Pokémon, as he had a fully evolved Blastoise.
   
== Name origin ==
+
Professor Oak is seen with other Squirtles in ''[[Pokémon Special|Journey to the Starting Line!]]'' and ''[[AG071: A Six-Pack Attack!|A Six Pack Attack]]''.
   
Probably from '''squirt''' and '''turtle'''.
+
==Evolution==
  +
'''Squirtle''' evolves into [[Wartortle]] at level 16 and again at level 36 into [[Blastoise]].
  +
{{Family|[[File:007.gif|Is not evolved]][[File:008.gif|Evolves at lvl. 16]][[File:009.gif|Evolves at lvl. 36]]}}
   
== Strategy ==
+
== Game info ==
  +
Squirtle is a starter option in ''[[Pokémon Red and Blue]]'', ''[[Pokémon Red and Green|Pokémon Green]]'', and, more recently, ''[[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen]]''. A Squirtle can also be received as a gift in [[Pokémon Yellow]].
   
Since Squirtle's [[Special attack|Special Attack]] is about 4% higher than its physical [[Attack]], it is best using {{Type|water}} moves than anything else. Defensively, it's [[Special defense|Special Defense]] is about 1% higher than it's [[defense|Physical]], it is not much better on Pokemon using Special attack types than physical. In {{RBY}}, its [[Special]] is 50, which is 22% lower than its [[Defense]]. It is weak to {{Type|Grass}} and {{Type|Electric}}, and resistant to {{Type|Fire}}, {{Type|Water}}, {{Type|Ice}} and {{Type|Steel}}.
+
In ''[[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', it is playable as part of [[Pokémon Trainer (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)|Pokémon Trainer]]'s team and its moves are [[Hydro Pump]], [[Withdraw]], [[Water Gun]] and [[Waterfall]].
   
If you need to fight a Squirtle, the use the following chart (the number in the parenthesies - the actual damage/physuical damage without weakness/resistance ratio: multiply the number by the base damage of the move and the attack/special attack of the attacking Pokemon - and the bigger the result, the more damage the move will do):

==Naturally learnt attacks==
+
=== Learnset ===
These are attacks which are learnt naturally by Squirtle &mdash; that is, learnt without the use of a [[TM]] or [[HM]] (automatically learned once they reach a certain level).
+
==== Generation I ====
  +
{{Main|Squirtle/Learnset Generation I}}
   
The rows entitled with acronyms are used to identify at what level the Pokémon learns that attack in that game. For example, if the number "7" was in a row entitled RGB beside an attack named "Foobar", than that Pokémon would learn the attack "Foobar" at level seven in Pokémon Red, Blue, and Green.
+
==== Generation II ====
  +
{{Main|Squirtle/Learnset Generation II}}
   
Any attacks which are learned at "Catch" means that they already know that attack when they are caught, or learn it before evolving into this form. N/A means that that attack is not learnable in that game. Any attacks which are learned a "Evolve" are learned when they evolve.
+
==== Generation III ====
  +
{{Main|Squirtle/Learnset Generation III}}
   
'''RGB''' stands for Red/Green/Blue, '''Y''' stands for Yellow, '''GSC''' stands for Gold, Silver, Crystal, '''RS''' stands for Ruby/Sapphire, '''FRLG''' stands for FireRed/LeafGreen, and '''GSC/FRLG''' stands for Gold/Silver/Crystal/FireRed/LeafGreen.

Squirtle (Japanese: ゼニガメ Zenigame) is the Water-type Starter Pokémon of the Kanto region.

Biology

Appearance

Squirtle is a small, light-blue Pokémon with an appearance similar to that of a turtle. Like turtles, Squirtle has a shell that covers its body with holes that allow its limbs, tail, and head to be exposed. Unlike a turtle, Squirtle is ordinarily bipedal. 

Special abilities

Squirtle has the ability Torrent, which boosts the power of its water type attacks by 150%, if its health drops to 33% or below.

Squirtle also has the natural ability to shoot water from its mouth, which is where the bulk of its attacks comes from.

In the anime

Squirtle Squad

The Squirtle Squad

Main article: Ash's Squirtle

Ash Ketchum owns a Squirtle, which he obtained in the episode Here Comes The Squirtle Squad. The Squirtle Squad was a group of Squirtle that were causing a number of disruptions in a small town. It wasn't until Ash arrived that they turned from doing bad to doing good, by becoming a firefighting squad. The leader then joined Ash, then much later returned to the squad and is currently where it is located. It does come back every now and then, to help Ash in a battle. Additionally, as revealed in the first episode, Ash wanted to have a Squirtle as his starter Pokémon.

May gets a Squirtle on The Place and the Right Mime. While in Pallet Town, the baby Squirtle became attached to May and Professor Oak let her keep it.

It was revealed in the episode The Ties That Bind that Gary Oak chose Squirtle as his starter Pokémon, as he had a fully evolved Blastoise.

Professor Oak is seen with other Squirtles in Journey to the Starting Line! and A Six Pack Attack.

Evolution

Squirtle evolves into Wartortle at level 16 and again at level 36 into Blastoise.

Game info

Squirtle is a starter option in Pokémon Red and Blue, Pokémon Green, and, more recently, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. A Squirtle can also be received as a gift in Pokémon Yellow.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it is playable as part of Pokémon Trainer's team and its moves are Hydro Pump, Withdraw, Water Gun and Waterfall.
