Shellshifting is a term used to describe the unique pivot animation of Squirtle. It serves itself to many applications, from mind-games to more technical endeavors.

To perform it is as simple as to dash forward and dashing in the opposite direction. Initiating a dash in the opposite direction will cancel the animation early.

A demonstrational video was made for this technique.

[edit] Uses

  • Squirtle bcomes smaller during the animation
  • Increased speed during animation
  • Can be used to confuse or fake-out your opponent (Baiting attacks)
  • Almost any action can be done out of it (Grabing, attacking, etc.)
  • Hydroplaning
