Squirtle (Japaneseゼニガメ Zenigame) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Wartortle starting at level 16, which evolves into Blastoise starting at level 36.

Along with Bulbasaur and Charmander, Squirtle is one of three starter Pokémon of Kanto available at the beginning of Pokémon Red, GreenBlueFireRed, and LeafGreen.

Biology

 
Squirtle in its shell

Squirtle is a small Pokémon that resembles a light-blue turtle. While it typically walks on its two short legs, it has been shown to run on all fours in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It has large, purplish or reddish eyes and a slightly hooked upper lip. Each of its hands and feet have three pointed digits. The end of its long tail curls inward. Its body is encased by a tough shell that forms and hardens after birth. This shell is brown on the top, pale yellow on the bottom, and has a thick white ridge between the two halves.

Squirtle's shell is a useful tool. It can withdraw into the shell for protection or to sleep. The grooved, rounded shape helps to reduce water resistance, allowing the Pokémon to swim at high speeds. Squirtle can spray foamy water from its mouth with great accuracy. Squirtle is scarce in the wild, although it can be found around small ponds and lakesThe anime has shown that it can be found living on secluded islands with other members of its evolutionary line. In the past, Skull Bash was its signature moveSharpedo is a natural predator of Squirtle.

Main article: Blasty

Green stole a Squirtle from Professor Oak, which she nicknamed Blasty. He has since evolved into Wartortle and then Blastoise more quickly than the others, possibly due to her innate talent in evolving Pokémon, as acknowledged by the Masked Man. Blasty is never shown in his Squirtle form, (save the contents page of the third volume and a picture Professor Oak had of Green stealing him from his lab). His first appearance, as a Wartortle, is in Wartortle Wars, returning as a Blastoise in Zap, Zap, Zapdos.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Squirtle is seen on the stage Pokéfloats and is the first Pokéfloat to appear. Play begins on its head and arms until it slowly leaves off the bottom of the screen. After traveling through all the Pokéfloats, the screen will be empty for a few seconds before Squirtle pops up and the cycle begins again.

Trophy information

Retreating into its shell and spitting water at its foes is Squirtle's trademark response to danger. It's one of the three Pokémon that Trainers can receive from Professor Oak in Pokémon Red and Blue. Squirtle evolves into Wartortle and then Blastoise, ramping up its water powers with each evolution.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

 
Squirtle from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Squirtle is a playable Pokémon used by the Pokémon Trainer alongside Ivysaur and Charizard. It can use Waterfall to recover from falls as well as Withdraw, in which case it retreats to its shell and shoots water from the back of it propelling him forwards. It also uses Water Gun to push enemies with a stream of water. Squirtle is a lightweight and uses various attacks using its shell and Water-type moves to combat its foes. It uses Hydro Pump in the Pokémon Trainer's Final Smash, Triple Finish.

Trophy information

 
Squirtle in Detective Pikachu

"A Tiny Turtle Pokémon. In times of danger, it pulls its arms and legs inside its shell to protect from enemy attacks. When it conceals its neck, it also shoots a powerful stream of water from its mouth. Its shell not only protects its body, but also reduces water friction when in the water. When leveled up, it evolves into Wartortle."

Trophy information

NAAt the start of their Pokémon adventures, many aspiring trainers visit Professor Oak to choose one of three starter Pokémon. Squirtle's always a popular choice, what with it being so gosh-darn adorable. When it's in danger, though, it withdraws into its shell and spits a high-pressure burst of water—a bit less adorable.

Trivia

 
$1 coins from Niue
  • Niue released a one-dollar coin featuring Squirtle as part of a commemorative promotion for the Pokémon franchise, with Squirtle on one side and the nation's coat of arms on the other.
  • As a species, Squirtle has been trained the most frequently out of all the Kanto starter Pokémon by major anime Trainers, with AshMayGary, and Tierno each owning one.

Origin

Squirtle's design is based on both its final evolved form and baby turtles[1], though its anatomy and semi-aquatic lifestyle are much more similar to terrapins. Much like Wartortle, its tail is a reference to Japanese legends of the minogame (蓑亀), a turtle which lived for 10,000 years and grew a tail made of seaweed.

Name origin

Squirtle is a combination of squirt (to spray and small child) and turtle.

Zenigame is a combination of 銭 zeni (money) and 亀 kame (tortoise/turtle). It literally means 銭亀 baby pond turtle. According to Pokémon Black and White's television program PokéQuiz, "'Zeni' is an old-fashioned word for money. Squirtle's shells look like old coins, so that's how they got their name!"
