Do you like Pokemon? If so, Squirdle is a great Wordle alternative for you. Squirdle is a Pokémon-themed guessing game similar to Wordle. Squirdle, as you might expect, requires you to guess Pokemon names rather than random words. There are eight chances to guess.
You'll get a different kind of clue if you make a wrong guess. Instead of letter positions, it shows commonalities between the right and wrong Pokemon. These clues vary based on a Pokemon's type, size, and even generation.
In Squirdle, you don't have to worry about remembering which Pokémon have names with five letters. Squirdle, on the other hand, asks you to guess a Pokémon based on five criteria: Gen, Type 1, Type 2, Height, and Weight. PokéBall icons let you know if your guess is too high, too low, or just right. If you guess Type 2 instead of Type 1, the PokéBall icon will display a side arrow.
The generation box will turn green if Squirtle is the correct generation but the wrong Pokémon. In the boxes for height and weight, up and down arrows show if the guess is too high or too low. Elemental Types have their own set of rules. Green indicates that you have it. Yellow indicates that you correctly guessed one of two categories, i.e. you guessed Water and it's Water/Flying. Red indicates that you have neither. There are almost 900 Pokémon, so there is a pretty long list to choose from. This is hard if you don't know a lot about Pokémon. Fortunately, gamers who are familiar with Generation 1 can pick the Gen 1 Only mode, which limits the game to only Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow.
You are free to play as often as you'd like because it is not a daily puzzle. There is still a daily puzzle for people who want to reach the limit, though.
If you like Pokémon, you already know you should give this game a try. You could even challenge your friends to see who knows more about pocket creatures. There are many different Wordle clones to try if a Pokémon guessing game isn't your thing. Absurdle, for example, uses the same principle as Wordle but makes every effort to prevent players from correctly guessing the word. Sweardle, on the other hand, offers four chances to predict a four-letter swear word from a list. Enjoy!
