Having said all of the above, it is time to talk a little about the topic that brings us today. And it is that The Toy Zone blog, dedicated to news, reviews and all kinds of content related to toys, was given the task of collecting information from Google Search, the search engine that we all use daily, to find what is the Most wanted and therefore most popular Pokémon in each country.
Thus, the aforementioned site created a map where we can see the most popular Pokémon in each country in the world. Where we can find that nothing more and nothing less than Squirtle, Pokémon of the first generation, is the most wanted in Honduras. In fact, all the Pokémon on the map are from the first generation, which is usually a favorite for those who only watched the anime.
Squirtle is the number 7 Pokémon in the national PokéDex. It is one of the initial Pokémon (or starters) of Pokémon Red and Blue, and its remakes, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, although, naturally, it can be obtained in the following games in different ways. This Pokémon evolves into Wartortle upon reaching level 16, and then evolves into Blastoise upon reaching level 36.
It’s not hard to imagine why Squirtle is the most wanted Pokémon in Honduras, and in practically all of Central America and Mexico. Considering that this information was recovered with a cut in February 2020, it could be thought that the popularity of this Pokémon is due to the “Let’s calm down” meme, where the pose with which Squirtle appears in the game is mocked. official art.
