Wartortle (Japanese: カメール Kameiru) is the Water-type Starter Pokémon of the Kanto region, evolved from Squirtle.


Wartortle are small, bipedal, turtle-like Pokémon with a similar appearance to that of their pre-evolved form, Squirtle. Some differences are that Wartortle have developed sharper and larger claws and teeth. Their tails are larger and fluffier than Squirtle's and Wartortle have developed large furry ears.

In the anime

Wartortle first appeared in the anime series in the episode Beach Blank-Out Blastoise. During this episode, a large number of Squirtle and Wartortle, along with their leader, a Blastoise, had fallen asleep on an island and could not wake up.

Wartortle evolves from Squirtle as of level 16 and evolves into a Blastoise at level 36.
