In this incredibly thought provoking video, Kyle Hill argues that Squirtle is in fact the best choice for a starter Pokemon.


  • Squirtle has greater offensive capabilities in gym battles over Charmander or Bulbasaur
  • Squirtle has greater defensive capabilities in gym battles over Charmander or Bulbasaur
  • Choosing Squirtle makes the first two gyms easier
  • Squirtle is the chosen starter Pokemon of speed-runners as his move set is very malleable


Squirtle is the superior starter Pokemon as it is better than the other two in nearly all areas.
