At the beginning you have to choose a starter and I thought I would be able to catch all three of them. I caught a Charmander even though Squirtle is my favorite, is there any way to acquire a Squirtle or switch starters?


Squirtles show up randomly in the wild.

    I can also confirm: I have seen a bulbasaur in the wild. Alas, the app crashed when I went to battle it :-/ – Robotnik Jul 7 '16 at 7:47
  • All the starters show up in the wild, however bulbasaur and squirtle seem more common. – jackwise Jul 8 '16 at 14:54

No Problem at all! As mentioned you can catch all Starters in the wild.

Another way to get them is out of 2km eggs: enter image description here

For the second part of the question: Changing teams or starters is not supported at the moment, so choose carefully ;)
