(@Blackglasses!) [Overview] Able to fill a niche role with double priority. Has a large physical movepool to work with. Can play a defensive set well with good defenses and Rapid Spin However, has middling speed, average attacking stats [SET] name: Double Priority move 1: Fake Out move 2: Aqua Jet move 3: Waterfall move 4: Zen Headbutt / Ice Punch item: Life Orb ability: Torrent nature: Adamant evs: 212 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe ivs: 0 HP Set Description: Double Priority allows it to act as an effective revenge killer. Aqua Jet boosted at low HP Zen Headbutt allows Squirtle to hit the various fighters of the tier, where Ice Punch allows him to hit Grass-types harder considering Poison- isn't their secondary typing. Additional Comments: Return has good neutral coverage Bite allows Squirtle to hit Pururiru, a common switch-in, while Brick Break can be used to hit Tesshiido for super-effective damage. Teammates and Counters: Tesshiido is a nuisance, so Magnemite is a good partner for Squirtle. Ghost-type Pokemon are a huge pain, so pairing Squirtle with Stunky to trap them is also a good idea. [SET] name: Rapid Spin move 1: Rapid Spin move 2: Boil Over / Surf move 3: Hidden Power Fire / Toxic move 4: Foresight item: Evolution Stone / Oran Berry ability: Torrent nature: Calm evs: 4 HP / 236 Def / 244 SpD / 12 Spe Set Description: Squirtle has good bulk and some good opportunities to switch-in Can utilize Foresight to allow for unblockable Rapid Spins Hidden Power Fire allows you to hit Tesshiido and prevent it from getting up hazards while Toxic hits Pururiru. Additional Comments: Squirtle has Counter and Mirror Coat to surprise and possibly snag a OHKO on an unsuspecting Pokemon Hydro Pump if you want to have more power at the cost of accuracy. Counters: Tesshiido can switch-in rather easily if Squirtle is not using Hidden Power Fire but cannot block Squirtle's main objective Powerful Electric- and Grass-type attacks will demolish Squirtle, so pairing him with something like Munchlax or a bulky Grass-type will help. [Team Options] Stunky deals with Ghost-type Pokemon, namely Duskull and Pururiru. Magnemite is able to deal with enemy Bronzor who can give Squirtle trouble. Bulky Grass-type Pokemon like Tesshiido are able to cover Squirtle's weaknesses. [Optional Changes] Counter or Mirror Coat could go anywhere on the Rapid Spin set, but its tough to find a slot for them. Yawn deserves a mentoin for its ability to possibly put a counter to sleep and rack up hazard damage. Squirtle has Water Spout working off his slightly higher Special Attack stat, but you'll rarely find a time to use it at full HP considering his low speed. [Counters} Pururiru is an excellent Squirtle counter, but it must be weary of Bites from the Double Priority set or Foresight Rapid Spin from the Rapid Spin set, as well as Toxic. Most bulky-Water type Pokemon can beat Squirtle, minus Toxic variants. Tesshiido also gets a mentoin for his ability to take little damage from Squirtle's assaults.
