Summon the Squirtle Squad
On July 20th the Spotlight will shine on, Squirtle, the Tiny Turtle Pokémon. To fully prepare you for this hour long weekly event, let’s go on a journey to discover everything we can about this Water Type Pokémon.
Squirtle is 1’08” and weighs 19.8 lbs. Much like it’s evolution, Wartortle, its tail is a reference to Japanese legends of the minogame, a turtle which lived for 10,000 years and grew a tail made of seaweed.
It’s name is derived from squirt and turtle.
