While Charizard and Bulbasaur get big props inside the Poke-community, Squirtle tends to get the popular nod from those not regularly affiliated with the series. Maybe it's due to his suggestive name, maybe it's because he's an adorable turtle - we're not sure. What we do is that his final form, Blastoise, is hecka cool and well worth the effort.
