Squirtle is a Water type Pokemon and is one of the most beloved characters in Ash’s Pokemon Collection. In this guide, we’ll show you the location, stats, abilities, and evolutions of Squirtle in Pokemon BDSP.

Pokemon BDSP Squirtle Location

Squirtle is an important part of the Pokemon series as it’s the sixth Pokemon Ash ever caught. Its back-story is quite sad as it was abandoned by its previous owner before Ash started training him and formed a team known as the Squirtle Squad.

Times have changed now, and Squirtle has become one of the most commonly used Ash’s Pokemon and, despite being smaller in size, proved everyone wrong by unlocking its evolution chain; he doesn’t use his evolution, but that’s a different story.
