Ash's Squirtle

No change in size, 28 May
In ''[[EP060|Beach Blank-Out Blastoise]]'', Squirtle was instrumental in helping rescue a colony of Squirtle, {{p|Wartortle}} and a {{p|Blastoise}} from {{an|Jigglypuff}}.
Squirtle's Gym Battlebattle debut came late and its Kanto Gym record was two losses, the first to [[Blaine]]'s {{p|Ninetales}} in ''[[EP058|Riddle Me This]]'', who Ash believed would be disadvantaged against Squirtle. Ninetales' {{m|Fire Spin}} completely overpowered Water Gun and took Squirtle down in one hit. It was then sent out to fight the fire in ''[[EP059|Volcanic Panic]]'' to cool off {{TP|Brock|Onix}}, Geodude and Pikachu with water as they dammed the volcano. The second loss was against {{an|Giovanni}}'s {{p|Machamp}}, under control of [[Jessie]] in ''[[EP063|The Battle of the Badge]]''. Squirtle took damage from {{p|Machamp}}'s {{m|Karate Chop}}, but the battle was ended when Giovanni's Pokémon defected and Team Rocket was sent blasting off.

Ash relied on Squirtle to battle [[Mandi]] in ''[[EP075|Round One - Begin!]]'', but his powerful {{AP|Kingler}} took the sweep and Squirtle was unnecessary. However, it won Ash's second round by using {{m|Skull Bash}} to defeat a {{p|Nidorino}} in ''[[EP076|Fire and Ice]]'' after it revealed its ability to use Withdraw to absorb the Nidorino's Tackle.
