PKMN of the Week: Squirtle

AOTW: Overgrow, Blaze, and Torrent

How goes it, folks? Wil here, now officially an Editor for the site! I’ll be going over a featured Ability every Friday. Before we dive into this week’s selection, let’s start with a primer on Abilities. Inspired by Pokemon Powers from the trading card game, Abilities are passive powers first introduced in the core games in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire versions.

Some pokemon are known as “Dual Ability” pokemon, meaning that they can potentially have one of two, or in Black and White with the Dream World addition, three Abilities. Some Abilities are common, others are exclusive to just one monster, but every pokemon has one and they can make or break a battle for you. So, now that we’ve gone over the basics, I thought that for my first article it would make sense to start at the beginning. This is Ability of the Week: Overgrow, Blaze, and Torrent!
