Squirtle is a Water-type Pokémon and one of the three starting Pokémon in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green. Its name is a portmanteau of squirt and turtle. In the Pokémon series, it evolves into Wartortle and later into Blastoise.

History[edit]

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Squirtle is the first Pokémon to appear on the Poké Floats stage, and it has a Trophy.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Main article: SmashWiki:Squirtle (SSBB)

Squirtle is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. However, it takes commands from the Pokémon Trainer, who is the real mastermind behind Squirtle's actions. The other two Pokémon used by Pokémon Trainer are Ivysaur and Charizard. When the Pokémon Trainer uses Pokémon Change, his down special move, he returns Squirtle and sends out Ivysaur next, but when used with Charizard, Squirtle is sent out. Squirtle is the lightest of the group, but also attacks the quickest.

Squirtle's neutral special move is Water Gun, in which it charges an attack to spit water at opponents. Its side special is Withdraw, which causes it to charge directly ahead in its shell. Its up special is Waterfall, which causes Squirtle to leap into the air on a stream of water.

Like all Pokémon of the Pokémon Trainer, Squirtle shares the damage meter with the other Pokémon and has a special stamina stat. It is there to regulate the Pokémon changes. When the player changes Pokémon rarely or too often, the stamina of the Pokémon runs low. Squirtle can also wall jump, and has the ability to stick to walls. Finally, Squirtle has a similar type effectiveness to its games of origin, making it take more damage from grass attacks but less from fire attacks.

The Subspace Emissary[edit]

In the Subspace Emissary, the Pokémon Trainer starts out with only Squirtle. Eventually, he earns Ivysaur and Charizard.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

Although Squirtle does not return in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, he appears as a trophy in both versions of the game.

Super Mario Maker[edit]

Squirtle appears as an Event Course costume in Super Mario Maker. It can be unlocked by completing the I Choose You! course along with Bulbasaur and Charmander, released on February 11, 2016. Unlike the Pokémon costumes already available in the game, Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Charmander uses sound effects from the original Pokémon games.

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[edit]

Trophy[edit]

When it conceals its neck, it also shoots a powerful stream of water from its mouth. Its shell not only protects its body, it also reduces water friction when it's in the water. When it levels up, it evolves into Wartortle.

NA: At 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.
