Okay, so maybe Squirtle doesn’t get better as he evolves. Not yet, anyways. Yet again, we have an example of Middle Stage Evolution Disorder. Okay, I’ve already overused that term, so I won’t mention it again for a while, but seriously, why do so many middle stage evolutions suck compared to their first and final stages? I mean, what the hell, Wartortle? Take away the ears and the tail, and you’re just a cocky Squirtle, only not nearly as cool. I guess the fangs are alright, but nothing special. Honestly, the amount of unoriginality is disappointing this early in the Pokedex. Wartortle’s not horrible, just unimaginative, uninspired, and lazy as all hell.
