The Squirtle Squad are a group of Squirtle wearing sunglasses that made their debut in the episode "Here Come the Squirtle Squad!" They were all abandoned by their trainers and like to pull pranks on bypassers. Their leader, Ash's Squirtle, wore a different style of sunglasses. It later came to Ash. In a later episode, Squirtle replaced its glasses when it helped a Blastoise.
