Pokedex Entry 8: Wartortle

Pokemon has been a part of my life, off and on, for about sixteen years. I think it’s time I started writing stuff about it. I make no promises as to how long this series will last.



I really like that Ivysaur/Charmeleon/Wartortle are usually drawn smirking. It kind of adds of the appeal of them as “teenage rebel” types.

I hope that I’m not the only one who thinks about them that way. I’d like to believe that, if Pokemon were real, you’d have a hard time controlling them at this stage of their evolution. You’d be all like “We’ve gotta train to win this badge!” and Wartortle would brush his ears back and say “Nah, I’m going to the mall.” Man, hypothetical Wartortle. You’re really making it hard for me to like you.

I never used Wartortle a lot growing up, mainly because I didn’t know what to make of his tail. Now, I dig it. I imagine him riding it like a surfboard and doing flips on waves, while he still wears those sunglasses that he got during his Squirtle days.

Damn. He’s too cool.

  1. My Mom always thought of them that way since before I understood puberty, but when I got older I thought that too. They look awkward but edgy. I loved its tail almost as much as lickitung’s.
