Water Pokemon Making Huge Splashes Worldwide

Aug 11, 2008
So you just got into Pokemon and are looking to build your card deck. There are many, many different Pokemon to choose from, and building a deck will require some patience and contemplation. Squirtle and its evolved forms are a top favorite. Here is some information regarding these three Pokemon.

Squirtle
Squirtle stands as the Number 007 Pokemon in the National Pokedex. In the main RPG series, Squirtle can be used as one of the starter Pokemon. It weighs 20 pounds and stands at 1ft 8in. Squirtle can be used as a starter in Pokemon Red, Pokemon Blue, Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen, and also in Pocket Monsters Green. Its name is believed to originate from squirt and turtle. It most resembles a turtle in both physiology and color and possesses a curly tail. The shell is used for both offensive attacks and for defense.

Squirtle sprays water from its mouth, and also sprays foam and bubbles at times. Squirtle are hard to find in the wild because Professor Oak raises most domestically, mainly as starters. If found in the wild, however, they will be found swimming in the rivers of canyons or living on islands.

Wartortle
Squirtle evolves into Wartortle, the Number 008 Pokemon, at Level 16. Wartortle still resembles a turtle except for its prominent blue coloring, white curly tail, and what appears to be ears that resemble small wings coming out of the side of its head. Its tail is so long and will stick out even if Wartortle hides in its shell. Weighing 49.6 pounds and standing at 3 ft 3 in, it is a bigger, stronger, and more aggressive Pokemon than Squirtle. It sneaks up on its prey by staying submerged in water. This Pokemon can live up to 10,000 years and is said to grow algae on its shell and develop a deeper color on its furry tail as it ages.

Blastoise
Blastoise is Number 009 in the National Pokedex and evolves from Wartortle starting at Level 36. It stands at 5'3" and weighs a whopping 189 pounds. Resembling the physiology of a turtle, Blastoise has lost its furry tail and ears and replaced them with two cannons that protrude from the side of its shell.

These cannons can shoot hundreds of pressurized water per minute. In addition to being very powerful, these cannons are also remarkably accurate, striking its target from hundreds of feet away. Like Squirtle, they can be found on island beaches but also prefer to live near freshwater ponds and lakes.
