Squirtle Guide

The Generation 1 Water-type is available as the player or partner through the main game.

Usually, Squirtle is chosen if the personality results are either Jolly (for males) or Relaxed (for females) in nature.

Its mobility is categorised by water, meaning it can traverse through water tiles but not fire/cloud tiles or walls.

Squirtle is a water type, meaning it is weak to electric and grass types, so you should pair it with a fire or electric type such as Pikachu, Charmander, Cyndaquil or Torchic.

Evolving Squirtle

Evolution does not play a massive part in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, so it is perfectly ok to keep Squirtle as he is.

Although stats do not increase from evolution, moves can vary. Once it evolves into Blastoise, it can learn moves such as Hydro Plant.

If you do wish to evolve Squirtle, you will need to finish the main story and enter the Luminous Cave - be sure to check our evolution guide for more details.
