Squirtle's shell is soft when it is born, and it takes time for the shell to swell and harden after hatching. But it eventually becomes so resilient, probing fingers will bounce off it. The shell is not merely used for protection; its rounded shape and the grooves on its surface help minimize resistance in water, enabling this pokemon to swim at high speeds. When Squirtle feels threatened, it draws its legs and neck inside its shell and squirts out water with vigorous force. It shoots water at prey while in the water and withdraws into its shell when in danger.
