And it’s the cutest plush ever! What’s not to like about a blue turtle in a raincoat? Even though Squirtle is a water type and therefore doesn’t need one. According to Pokéshopper, Squirtle will be available within the coming months as an online exclusive bundled with Pokémon TCG cards, a Squirtle sound chip, and hooded raincoat. As long as those tiny Squirtle noises are accurate, they will only add to the pure cute that is this plush.
This Squirtle comes after the success of Build-A-Bear’s Charmander, Eevee, and Pikachu plushies. Of which only the Charmander and Pikachu are currently available. Both are online exclusives and also come with the TCG cards and sounds specific to the Pokémon.
As one of the many starter Pokémon in the series, Squirtle is quite popular among some players. Though wars have begun over who likes Squirtle and who doesn’t. I’m on the Charmander team myself, because I can’t resist a fire type. Or dragons.
Nonetheless, Squirtle has been popular to get his own appearance in one of the many animated Pokémon show series. Though, of course, Squirtle or any other Pokémon has not been able to reach the popularity of Pikachu. Despite Pikachu being rather weak without very intense training in the actual games, unlike its sheer power in the movies and shows.
