May's Wartortle (Japanese: ハルカのカメール Haruka's Kameil) was the sixth Pokémon obtained by May. As a Squirtle, its Japanese voice actress is 半場友恵 Tomoe Hanba and its English voice actor is Craig Blair. In English, as a Squirtle, it was voiced by Eric Stuart. In Brazil, in some episodes when its voice couldn't be retained, it was voiced by Gilmara Sanches.


After leaving her Beautifly and her Skitty in Hoenn, she met up with Ash in Pallet Town, where one of Professor Oak's Squirtle took a liking to her. When it did not want to go in Professor Oak's Poké Ball, he allowed it to travel with May, so it went in her Poké Ball instead.

May's Squirtle is distinct from Ash's Squirtle, as it is much younger and smaller, mainly because it was intended to be a starter Pokémon. Squirtle started out relatively shy and was a bit of a crybaby. May quickly introduced it to Pokémon contests, where it adapted well. It was first used in the battle rounds of the Saffron City Pokémon Contest, defeating Harley's Ariados, which was its first major accomplishment on May's team. It has considerably grown since then, crying less and competing in more contests. It also managed to defeat Drew's Flygon in the Kanto Grand Festival, yet another of its many feats.

It was assumed that this Pokémon continued to remain on May's team, traveling with her through Johto. Squirtle evolved in time to enter the Wallace Cup with May in Staging a Heroes' Welcome! May used Wartortle in the appeals round.

Using Bubble as a Squirtle
  • Wartortle is May's only Pokémon that is mid-way through its evolution line. All her other Pokémon are at their first or final stage, with all but Glaceon having evolved twice.
  • Between them, Ash, May and Gary own the entire Squirtle line (Ash has Squirtle, May has Wartortle, and Gary has Blastoise).
