I know there are many fans who may be thinking of adding Squirtle to their collection. Fans who are on the fence about adding to their collection may find my Squirtle set review to be helpful.
Did you know that Squirtle’s first game is Pokémon Red and Blue? You can find more information on this game later in my review.
In addition, you can also find the following as you read my review…
- Details on the Squirtle Nanoblock set.
- Instructions on building the Squirtle model.
- Information on the beloved creature itself.
My goal is to offer accurate information to other Pokémon fans. This is why I have thoroughly researched websites, blogs and YouTube for my review. I am also using my experience with the Nanoblock Squirtle set.

You can use my review and the information from other sources to decide if Squirtle is a good addition to your Nanoblock Pokémon collection.
It never hurts to learn about a character and franchise before purchasing a toy or collectible. You may be a new fan of the franchise, or maybe you are purchasing the product for a loved one.
Then again, you may be curious about the character or franchise. After all, it is always fun to pick up a new interest or hobby.
Squirtle is a water Pokémon with the ability to retract its neck into its shell and squirt out water with powerful force. Part of the tiny turtle category, this Pokémon uses water-style moves during battle.

Squirtle’s weaknesses are grass and electricity.
In addition, this Pokémon can evolve into Wartortle and Blastoise over time.
Squirtle may look precious on the outside, but this little creature is ready to battle other Pokémon.
Pokémon Red and Blue Version
Pokémon Red and Blue Versions are the first two Pokémon games to be released internationally. The original pair consisted of Pocket Monsters Red and Green, which were released in Japan before their upgrades and international releases.
On this day in 1999, #Pokemon Red and Blue versions were released in Europe!
Along with selling 300 million copies worldwide, Red and Blue’s critical success made the Pokemon series synonymous with handheld gaming.

Players are known as Red, and they start by choosing from Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur. They travel to various locations to engage in battle with other Pokémon Trainers.
In addition, players also battle a rival known as Blue. Finally, players travel to the Cerulean Cave to find the strongest Pokémon in Kanto, which is known as Mewtwo.
My Review of The Squirtle Nanoblock Set
The Squirtle Nanoblock set allows you to build a small 3D design of this cute but powerful water Pokémon.
I cannot get over the details of this Squirtle model, from its adorable eyes and cheeks to its shell and tail.

I feel like ZC-Infinity agrees with me on the accurate details.
To quote this blogger,
“This Squirtle, on the other hand, IS colored correctly. And designed quite accurately as well. I especially like the big eyes and the little arms. Unfortunately, since it’s lacking a lower jaw, it doesn’t have a smile for maximum cute factor.”
The lack of a lower jaw did not catch my eye until I read that post. Nonetheless, I still love the details of this Squirtle design.

Squirtle Nanoblock Set Dimensions
There are 120 pieces in the Squirtle set, including the extra pieces. The pieces come in a resealable package for your convenience.

I am not the only fan who feels the extra pieces and resealable package are convenient.
To quote Ninetylives, a blogger of Milkcananime,
“Let’s first start off with the packaging. The packet actually has a resealable lock, so just in case you aren’t able to finish building the Nanoblock in one go, you can zip it up, so you won’t lose any of the pieces. However, in the event that you do lose a couple of pieces, don’t worry! There is one extra block for every piece set.”
The smallest pieces are 4 mm by 5 mm for a perfect fit and an accurate design. Once assembled, Squirtle stands approximately 1.7 inches tall.
Did you know that the Bulbasaur set also includes 120 pieces? You can find my Bulbasaur Nanoblock set review by clicking here.
Squirtle Nanoblock Set Difficulty Level
Every Nanoblock set is based on a difficulty level of one to five. One is the easiest level, while five is the most advanced level.
The Squirtle set is based at level two, and it is appropriate for ages eight and older. It offers a bit of a challenge without creating a frustrating experience for builders of all ages.
I was able to build Squirtle in about 30 minutes, and guests can find this little creature in my hobby room on a Nanoblock baseplate.
Charmander is another Pokémon that is based at level two. In this article, you can find my review and general information on the Charmander Nanoblock set.
