Squirtle. This Tiny Turtle Pokémon draws its long neck into its shell to launch incredible water attacks with amazing range and accuracy. The blasts can be quite powerful.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Squirtle is the original Water starter, and probably one of the most popular. It’s the original Turtle Pokemon.
In the anime, Ash had a Squirtle. That Squirtle was part of the Squirtle Squad, a squad of fire fighting Squirtles. It left Ash to go back to his duties at the end of his Johto journey. May also had a Squirtle, it’s rather shy as I remember.
Stat-wise, it has better Defenses than Attacks.
