Squirtle is a Water-type Pokémon that evolves into Wartortle at Lv. 16, which evolves into Blastoise at Lv. 36.


Squirtle is a light blue turtle-like Pokémon. It has large brown 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 hatching. This shell is brown on the top, pale yellow on the bottom, and has a thick white ridge between the two halves.

Squirtle typically walks on two legs, it has been seen on all fours.


Squirtle can be found around small ponds and lakes. Squirtle can also be found living on secluded islands with other members of its evolutionary line.


Squirtle can withdraw into its shell for protection or for sleeping, and its grooved, rounded shape helps to reduce water resistance when it swims.

Squirtle can spray foamy water from its mouth with great accuracy.
