{{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 behavior when it reunited with its Squad later on had a noticeable difference. Although very loyal to Ash after the latter saved its life, he was shown to be somewhat cynical at times. This was best demonstrated during the events of ''Pokémon Shipwreck'', where, while searching for their trainers, Sqirtle briefly speculates that their trainers may have been eaten by the local wildlife.
Mature or not, Squirtle is shown to be a born leader and prefers to wear sunglasses occasionally, donning them when investigating {{an|Jigglypuff}}'s presence on the island in ''[[EP060|Beach Blank-Out Blastoise]]'' and when it competed against [[Team Wartortle]] to prove itself, its fire-fighting spirit hurt by its inability to put out the fire that Team Wartortle had extinguished.
