Charizard (Japanese: リザードン Lizardon) is a dual-type Fire/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Charmeleon starting at level 36. It is the final form of Charmander.

Charizard is the version mascot of Pokémon Red and FireRed Versions. It also makes an appearance on the Pokémon Ranger, Template:En, and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky boxarts.

Biology

Physiology

Unlike its pre-evolutions, it has wings that can allow it to fly. Charizard is a very dragon-like Pokémon. Like its previous forms, it has a long tail with a fire burning at the tip. It has extremely sharp claws, a long neck, and two horns protruding from the back of its head. The front of its two wings is blue, while the back is orange like the most of its body. Although hardly visible, Charizard's iris is light blue in color. Its belly and the undersides of its feet are cream-colored.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

As its pre-evolutions could, it can use a variety of Template:Type2 moves. Being a Template:Type2 starter, Charizard has the ability to learn Blast Burn. Its fire is incredibly hot, and described to be hot enough to melt boulders. Because of the wings it has grown upon evolution, Charizard can fly and can use many other Template:Type2 abilities, and its wings are able to carry it close to an altitude of 4,600 feet.

It also has access to Template:Type2 moves, such as Dragon Claw, DragonBreath, and Dragon Rage as well as Dragon Pulse. It also is able to use Shadow Claw, and expel obscuring smoke to lower the accuracy of its opponent.

Since Charizard is a fully evolved Pokémon, it can use Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

Generally, a Charizard will be competitive. It loves to battle and spend a great amount of time training or looking for opponents. Its competitive spirit is also noteworthy, since it will never spit flames at a weaker foe unless provoked or commanded. When it gets very angered, the flames on its tail become a blueish-white color. It spits fire that is hot enough to melt boulders. It is known to have unintentionally caused massive forest fires with its tail-flame. The more experienced a Charizard, the more intense its tail flame and breath are. Charizard has been depicted in Great Bowls of Fire to repeatedly lick the people and Pokémon it is fond of, in a similar manner to a dog.

Habitat

Charizard is mercifully rare in the wild; however, there is a valley somewhere in Johto wherein many Charizard reside. Charizard also inhabit craggy mountains and active volcanoes. One is also most likely able to find them in Kanto.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Its fierce appearance and disposition may suggest that it is mostly carnivorous, but like most Pokémon, it can subsist on the typical omnivorous diet most Pokémon share.

In the anime

Major appearances

Ash's Charizard

Ash Ketchum has a Charizard that he obtained as a Charmander in Charmander the Stray Pokémon. It evolved into Charmeleon in March of the Exeggutor Squad and quickly evolved again into Charizard in Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon. From the time of its becoming Charmeleon to the Orange Islands episode Charizard Chills, Charizard refused to obey Ash. After Charizard Chills, however, it became one of Ash's strongest Pokémon, perhaps even stronger than Pikachu. Ash left Charizard in the Charicific Valley with Liza in Charizard's Burning Ambition. It has returned to visit and battle for him on several occasions since then, however.

Other

Charizard first appeared in Island of the Giant Pokémon, however it was a fake mechanical robot. When James was in the Pokémon League Entrance Exam in The Ultimate Test, he used a Charizard that he eventually tried to steal.

In Those Darn Electabuzz, Casey had to help Corey Demario and his Charizard named Don get their fighting spirit back so that Corey could start pitching for The Electabuzz Baseball Team.

Clark used a Charizard and Quilava against Ash's Grovyle and Glalie in Shocks and Bonds. Clark's Charizard defeated Ash's Grovyle and lost to Ash's Glalie.

In Grating Spaces, Delibird gave Jessie and James a Charizard and an Aggron, with Jessie getting Charizard and James getting Aggron. However, Delibird took the two Pokémon away at the end of the episode as the Charizard and Aggron were meant for Cassidy and Butch.

Minor appearances

A Charizard was used by Team Rocket in a battle against Ash's Totodile as part of an elaborate plan to capture Pikachu in One Trick Phony!.

A trainer used a Charizard in the Verdanturf Pokémon Contest in Come What May.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Blue's Charizard

One of Blue's main Pokémon, Charizard first debuted as a Charmander. With its increased capacity for battle both with augumented strength and its flight ability, it proved to be a valuable asset for Blue, both during the Silph Co. battles and in the Pokémon League, where Red's Venusaur narrowly defeated it. Tucker also has a Charizard in the Battle Frontier storyline that he used against Emerald, marking the boy's one and only loss throughout the entire Emerald chapter.

In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

Main article: Ash's Charizard
Main article: Zippo

Ash's Charizard makes a few appearances in the manga series The Electric Tale of Pikachu. It first appears as a Charmander in You Gotta Have Friends and then later appears as a Charizard in The Indigo Finals.

Ritchie's Charizard also appears in The Indigo Finals, battling against Ash's. In the Japanese version, Ritchie's Charizard retains its nickname of Zippo, however, it is renamed to Charley in the VIZ Media English translation.

In the Pokémon Battle Frontier manga

In the Pokémon Battle Frontier manga series, Rald, the main character's mentor, has a Charizard.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

Main article: Kai Midorikawa's Charizard

Kai Midorikawa, the main rival of Isamu Akai in the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga series, owns a Charizard. It is the final evolved form of Charmander, his starter Pokémon. It is a mischevious Pokémon that has a rivalry with Isamu Akai's Clefairy.

As a Charmander, it was able to evolve directly into Charizard, apparently skipping the Charmeleon stage. It has reverted to the Charmander stage, although it has since evolved back into Charizard permanently.

In the Pokémon Zensho manga

In Pokémon Zensho, Satoshi has a Charizard that was originally a Charmander he received from Professor Oak.

In the TCG

Main article: Charizard (TCG)

Charizard's first-released TCG card, which as part of the Base Set, was widely regarded at the height of popularity of Pokémon as the best card ever. This was because of its powerful attack, Fire Spin, and useful Pokémon Power, Energy Burn, which allowed it to convert any Energy attached to it to Fire Energy. Fire Spin needed four Fire Energy and could deal 100 damage, knocking out the majority of Pokémon cards. Individual Charizard cards were sold up to as much as $150. This Charizard card was reprinted in Wizards of the Coast's Base Set 2 and Legendary Collection sets, and rereleased in the Stormfront expansion.

In the TFG

One Charizard figure has been released.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros./Melee/Brawl

Charizard makes an appearance as a Pokémon released randomly from a Poké Ball. When summoned, Charizard will utilize Flamethrower alternating between the left and right. In Melee, the flames have more of a downward angle.

Charizard is a playable Pokémon used by Pokémon Trainer in the third game in the series, Brawl. It can use Flamethrower and Rock Smash. It also uses Fly and has the ability to glide. Charizard is a Heavyweight and attacks with various physical attacks. It uses Fire Blast in Pokémon Trainer's Final Smash, Triple Finish.

Melee trophy information

It's hard to believe, but this massive Flame Pokémon evolves from the tiny Charmander. Not only can it fly at heights of over 4,500 feet, but its flaming breath is hot enough to reduce almost anything to ashes in seconds. The flames at the end of a Charizard's tail are said to be a fairly accurate barometer of its power.

Brawl trophy information

A Flame Pokémon. Its fiery breath is hot enough to burn up rocks, and its wings let it fly up to 4,600 feet into the air. It's a proud Pokémon that will never use its flame breath on an opponent weaker than itself. The flame on its tail is a barometer of how much vitality it has remaining. Its signature move, Flamethrower, is a reliable technique.

Trivia

  • Charizard has the same cry as Rhyhorn.
  • Charizard has the same base stats as Typhlosion.
  • Charizard is the only Template:Type2 Pokémon related to a starter Pokémon.
    • It is also the only final form of a starter Pokémon to have actual wings (as Empoleon has flippers.)
  • Charizard shares the same species name as Charmeleon, Flareon, Moltres, and Infernape. They are all known as Flame Pokémon.
  • Charizard holds the distinction of being the first Pokémon to appear in the Japanese version of the Pokémon anime; it is the first one to appear in the original opening credits. However, outside of Japan, this honor belongs to Mewtwo.
  • In the anime, the inside of Charizard's wings are colored green, while in the games, they are colored blue.
  • Charizard is the only Pokémon in the Super Smash Bros. series that transitioned from a Poké Ball Pokémon to a playable character.
  • Charizard is the first Pokémon with a double weakness, if Bulbasaur isn't considered in Generation I.
    • However, it is also the first Pokémon with an immunity.
  • Out of all the final forms of Kanto starters, Charizard has the highest Attack, Special Attack, Speed, single base stat and base stat total.
    • Charizard is tied with Infernape and Typhlosion for the highest stat total of all final forms of fire-type starter Pokémon. They also have the second highest stat total of all final forms of starter Pokémon, being just one point below Swampert
  • Charizard's shiny palette is radically different than that of its pre-evolved forms - Charmander and Charmeleon's shiny forms are yellow while Charizard's is a deep purple in Generation II, and becomes even darker yet with the change to black in all following generations. It is the only starter in the main series to have this contrast.

Move related trivia

Origin

Charizard resembles the European dragon, certainly one of many forms told and rendered in legends. Charizard's prominence as a dragon without being of the Template:Type2 is further reinforced in the video game Pokémon Ranger, where one makes a cameo as one of four prominently featured patron elemental dragon Pokémon.

The other three Pokémon sharing this distinguishing trait are legitimate Dragon-type Pokémon; Salamence, Kingdra, and Flygon. The patronage of these four dragons is inspired from the four classical elements; Air, Water, Earth, and Fire, with Charizard being the representative of Fire.

It shares some evolutionary traits with Charmeleon in its distinctive horns; also a distinct trait in some dragons.

Name origin

Charizard's name is a portmanteau of the words char, to burn, and lizard. Lizardon, on the other hand, is a combination of lizard and don, which is a suffix meaning tooth that is commonly used in dinosaur names.

In other languages

  • German: Glurak - Comes from Glut (ember, also the German translation for the move of the same name) and Drache (dragon).
  • French: Dracaufeu - Effectively translates as Fire Dragon.
  • Korean: 리자몽 Rijamong (Lizamon)
  • Chinese: 噴火龍/喷火龙 Pēn Huǒ Lóng - "Fire spurting dragon".
