On March 10th, 2022, Japan’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Kiyoshi Odawara, visited Chile and met with the new president of Chile, Gabriel Boric, who assumed office on March 11th, 2022, and gave him a gift, and what better gift to give to the new president than a first-generation starter Pokémon to accompany him during his new adventure, Squirtle!

The reason why Squirtle was chosen, according to Japanese outlets, was because back in December 2021, Gabriel Boric was asked what his favorite Pokémon was during the presidential campaign, and his answer was none other than Squirtle, so the Japanese Minister decided to take on the role of Professor Oak and grant Boric’s wish.
