Squirtle used to be the leader of a gang known as the [[Squirtle Squad]], a group of rogue Squirtle who were deserted by their {{pkmn|Trainer}}s. {{MTR}} managed to befriend the Squirtle Squad by convincing them that [[Jessie]] and [[James]] were his pets. The Squirtle Squad then captured Ash, {{an|Misty}} and {{an|Brock}} so they could take {{AP|Pikachu}} back to Meowth. Ash managed to convince the Squirtle Squad to let him free to get a Super Potion for Pikachu, who was badly injured after an earlier encounter with a {{p|Goldeen}}. The Squirtle Squad agreed to let Ash go to town to buy a Super Potion, but if he didn't return by noon the next day, they threatened to dye Misty's hair purple (in the original, they threatened to kill her).

{{bulbanews|Personality & Development: Ash's Squirtle}}
 
Squirtle is one of Ash's most trustworthy Pokémon, but is by no means perfect. Compared especially with its closest friend, the very serious {{AP|Bulbasaur}}, it comes across as immature and mischievous, particularly during its time with the [[Squirtle Squad]] where it led the team to commit various pranks and so on, and how it embarrassed itself trying to intimidate a {{p|Snubbull}} in [[PK01|Pikachu's Vacation]]. However, through its travels with Ash it matured considerably, and its behaviour when it reunited with its Squad later on had a noticeable difference.

* Though a {{p|Squirtle}} was Ash's first choice before he began his journey, it was the last of the Kanto starters he caught. It should be noted, however, that the order of capture did not depend on him.

* Squirtle's gender was hinted at in the Japanese version of ''[[EP017|Island of the Giant Pokémon]]''. In the subtitles, it refers to itself as おれ ''{{wp|Japanese pronouns|ore}}'', which is a pronoun normally used by males, also used by characters such as {{Ash}}, {{an|Brock}} and [[James]] in the Japanese version.
