HOW TO GET SQUIRTLE IN POKEMON YELLOW VERSION
Pokemon Yellow was the third version of the first generation of the Pokemon games, Red and Blue. What made Yellow version so different from the main two games was the fact that the story was more similar to how the actual Pokemon anime was. Unlike Red and Blue, not only do you start the game out with a Pikachu, but you can obtain all three starter Pokemon in the game as well, including Squirtle.
Squirtle is the water-type starter that is easily obtainable in Pokemon yellow by completing a few simple tasks. First, you have to defeat the third gym leader in the game, Lt. Surge, in Vermilion City. Once you get the Thunder Badge from him, just head outside of the gym and you will see Officer Jenny in the middle of the city and she will give you the water Pokemon, free of charge. She mentions that this particular Squirtle has been getting into some trouble, which is why she wants to give it to a successful trainer like yourself. This whole dialogue is actually a reference to the Squirtle Squad, a pack of Squirtle’s in the Pokemon anime that were abandoned by their trainers and always seem to be wearing sunglasses. Unfortunately, the Pokemon that the officer gives to you is lacking a pair of his own sunglasses, but he can still be a pretty solid fighter for your team.
That’s all you need to know about getting the water-type starter in Pokemon Yellow. If you are looking for any more tips and tricks for your favorite games, just search for Twinfinite.
