Squirtle is a bipedal turtle with its most notable feature being the hard shell on its back. This shell forms and hardens on its back after birth. It could perhaps be distantly related to some other turtle-like Pokémon, such as Torkoal and Turtwig, but Squirtle seems to only be closely related to its evolutions.
Squirtle's shell is an extremely helpful defensive tool. It can withdraw into the shell to block physical attacks. Its smooth, hard shell and head also aid it in other ways, such as minimizing its resistance in water to increase its swimming speed, and allowing it to launch attacks like Rapid Spin and Skull Bash.
Squirtle is a natural-born swimmer. However, due to its size, it's easier for it to transport something small (like a Pikachu) than to carry its Trainer. Its jaws may not look like much, but they are strong enough that a Squirtle can learn to use a Bite attack.
Squirtle's tail resembles a squirrel's tail, which allows it to use moves such as Tail Whip and Aqua Tail.
Strategies and Tactics
A wild Squirtle typically swims up next to a boat or surfing Pokemon and launches its attack from the water. A domesticated Squirtle follows all orders given by its owner.
PokeMon Battle A Squirtle is incapable of delivering Lethal Damage to another PokeMon. Treat all damage taken in a fight between two PokeMon as nonlethal damage. However, a PokeMon does not take a -4 penalty on their attack roll when dealing nonlethal damage to PokeMon.
Special Advancement A Squirtle gains Experience at fives times the rate of other creatures with Class Levels. However, it does not increase in challenge rating any faster than any other creature would. In addition, a PokeMon cannot take any class levels other than the levels pertaining to its type.
PokeMoves A Squrtle is capable of using any Water-type and Ice-type moves and any normal-type move whose prerequisites it meets.
Amphibious' Though Aquatic, a Squirtle can survive indefinitely on land.
