Squirtle, or Squiretle as his colleagues call him, is a prestigious water Pokemon. He has the bluest blood and rumored to be a direct descendant of Arceus itself. Squirtle is a humble Pokemon, but knows his place in the world: at the very top. Squirtle is well-read and loves to spend his quiet Sunday afternoons in his library filled with books. He collected them during his travels to the far regions of Hoenn, Unova, Alola, and Galar.
GRADE A QUALITY Grade A quality pins are the best quality offered at this time. They are near-perfect, but may have minor flaws (most only visible under certain lighting and angles). Due to the nature of pin production, pins may have minor cases of the following:
ABOUT THE GENTLEMON LINE In 2011 I designed a series of the Kanto starters (Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle and Pikachu) dressed in fancy attire and named them "Gentlemon." I made them into small acrylic phone charms for an anime convention and they were an immediate success. A few months later, a photo of them went viral on Reddit and Tumblr and encouraged me to expand the line. Eevee and its evolutions (named "Teaveelutions") joined the family as well as a few of the top-requested Pokemon that got a fancy glow-up. They all had their moment as acrylic charms and eventually became a printed tee. I really wanted to make them into enamel pins for an elevated, glitzy moment, but I couldn't afford it back then.
Now more than 8 years later, I'm bringing the original four back in their iconic poses and posh accessories! I wanted to make this set extra special when developing these products, so this line is HARD ENAMEL. Their surface is smooth to the touch with no recessions in the metal and are polished to a high-gloss metallic finish.
