Pokémon Let’s GO – How to get Squirtle

Pokémon Let’s GO, both Pikachu and Eevee are basically remakes of Pokémon Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. However, there are some key differences. Like Pokémon Yellow, instead of choosing between Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle for your starter Pokémon, you’re given either Eevee or Pikachu, depending on your version of the game.

That doesn’t mean that the three original starter Pokémon aren’t in Pokémon Let’s GO. In fact, each of them is readily available in the game and pretty easy to collect. 

This short guide will let you know how to add Squirtle to your collection.

Pokemon Let’s GO Squirtle

Adding Squirtle to your Pokémon collection is just as easy as Charmander. After you visit Bill, the Pokémaniac and he gives you his tickets to the S.S. Anne, you’ll need to head south out of Cerulean City. 

To get through Cerulean City to the south, you’ll need to go through the house that was robbed by Team Rocket. After speaking with Bill, the police officer who was blocking your way will run off to chase a Squirtle; allowing you access,

You won’t be able to travel Celadon City just yet as the guard won’t let you pass. You will, however, be able to travel through the tunnel to Vermillion City. 

Once you arrive in Vermillion City, you should see the officer standing near the Pokémon Centre with the Squirtle she chased. Provided you’ve caught enough Pokémon, she’ll give the Squirtle to you to look after. I had caught 77 by the time I arrived, which should be easy to do while you’re playing.

After you’ve spoken to the officer, Squirtle is yours. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
