    i wonder if it'd be funner to play as charmander and blastoise in ssbb than the current set up?

    I was a long time member of the squirtle squad, before they revoked my membership.

    I also remember him being my least picked starter of red.

    Squrtle was my jam man. Part Squirrel, part turrtel, part squirt. And evolving into a tank? HE EVOLVES INTO A TANK! How could you ever argue there is a better pokemon than Squrtle. Squrtle Squad 4 L1F3.

    I remember squirtle, best soup ever!

    Man, dodgy information or not, that idea of the pokemon trainer shouting orders in the bottom screen sounds awesome, and now I want it to happen soo bad! And well, Squirtle was basically my very first pokemon ever. He's the one I chose back when I played Pokemon for the first time, and I pretty much used it all the way to the end to defeat stupid ol' Gary... And that's pretty much the only time I've ever done that with a starter, since now, being obsessed with stats, I usually find they are not that great in the grand scheme of things.

    Apology accepted GR. Keep using Bulbapedia for facts and Trivia. As for Squirtle memories...I don't really have any. I've always been a Bulbasaur guy. I do enjoy the Squirtle Squad episode though. Still waiting for GR to spotlight Skarmory, he needs his recognition! BTW, today (2/27) is the day when Pokemon was first released in Japan. So Happy Birthday Pokemon, and congrats to 17 years of greatness!

    My Squirtle memory is when I finally bought my Blue version and started (choosing Squirtle), my friend literally tackled me from excitement because I'd chosen the same version and starter as him, completely coincidentally.

    I wish I was good enough to draw fanart of the hosts as Pokemon xD This was a really funny podcast. Five thumbs up.

    Love how you guys don't need to have any new information, and I STILL enjoy listening to your "news". Squirtle was never my fave of the three, so my fondest memory stems from Smash Bros Brawl as opposed to an actual pokemon game. My friend and I would run Squirtle and Mario as a team, and use their water moves that pushed people backwards to keep the enemy away from the ledge as they recovered. Fun, fun times. Also, I'd make a whole team of Hollander's and become number 1 in the competitive ratings! Can't wait for next episode!

    My first squirtle, named bubbles, was my pride and joy. But sadly Bubbles outlived his usefulness as soon as I beat Brock. So right after Mt. Moon I tossed his butt right into the PC and raised myself and freaking BUTTERFREE!!!!!!!!!!!!! "I always found it fascinating that squirtle always evolved at level 14 instead of 16 like Charmander and Bulbasaur usually did".
  • Cyberninja - February 26, 2013 8:33 p.m.

    Well guys you did a swell job with this amazing podcast, also when I had my first pet it was a turtle and I named it Squirtle after the pokemon.
  • Cyberninja - February 26, 2013 8:48 p.m.

    I also remember the time in pokemon yellow I had my under leveled squirtle go against Giovanni , because he fainted my other pokemon, surprisingly my squirtle K.O.ed his last two pokemon and instantly became a warturtle as its reward.
  • DarthEnderX - February 26, 2013 7:56 p.m.

    Let's see...Squirtle memories.... Don't think I've ever used them except for the ones I raised up just long enough to evolve them to fill out my collection.

    Henninger: The Stuttering Pokemon Hollander: The Pokemon that yells like anime Aerodactyl Pokemon Henry: The Every Bulky Water Type Pokemon I cant wait for Gates to Infinity, i found my old Blue Rescue team and playing the crap out of it till infinity comes out. 4chan, the deep dark depths of everything you wish you didnt stick with but just cant stop. I know EXACTLY what your talking about, im a 4channer and i hate every single thing about it, especially the video game board /v/, /vg/ is alright and then you have the /vp/ because Pokemon apparently needed its own board. I like how Bidoof gets Moody in dreamworld, and then gets banned by the Competitive People because "WE HATE EVASION, BANNED" Ah Squirtle, definitley was my starter in Blue the first time ever. Its funny how you had to rely on BUBBLE and BUBBLE BEAM back then XD and then Blastoise, DEM WATER CANONS SON, F*CK YOUR FLYING DRAGON, YOU GOT THAT PLANT MONSTER? BLIZZARD B*TCH! Ah, those were the days. One of my Favorite episodes of all time was the episode where that random wartortle came to let ash and friends save the mystery of the sleeping squirtle,Wartortle, that 1 Blastoise.

    Don't forget the Talji - the "ultimate" type that destroys everything.
