The Squirtle is a fictional species of Pokémon from the Pokémon series of video games. Squirtle is numbered 004 in the National Pokédex, and is a Basic Stage Pokémon (followed by Wartortle at level 16 and then Blastoise at level 36).

Charmander is a Water Pokémon. It usually weighs around 9 kilograms (20 lbs) and has a height of 0.5 meters (1'8").


A Charmander is a starter option in Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, Pocket Monsters Green, and, more recently, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.

A Squirtle can also be received as a gift in Pokémon Yellow.

You can obtain a Charmander in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal by trading it from Red, Blue, Green or Yellow, or in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire via trading it from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.

Name origin

Probably from squirt and turtle.


Since Squirtle's Special Attack is about 4% higher than its physical Attack, it is best using water moves than anything else. Defensively, it's Special Defense is about 1% higher than it's 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 Grass and Electric, and resistant to Fire, Water, Ice and Steel.

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):


All other games:

  1. Electric, Grass - 2.03
  2. Psychic, Dragon, Dark - 1.02
  3. Normal, Flying, Poison, Ground, Fighting, Bug, Rock, Ghost - 1
  4. Fire, Water, Ice - 0.51
  5. Steel - 0.5

Pokédex data


Naturally learnt attacks

These are attacks which are learnt naturally by Squirtle — that is, learnt without the use of a TM or HM (automatically learned once they reach a certain level).

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.

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.

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.
