Chikorita (Japanese: チコリータ Chicorita) is a Grass-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Bayleef starting at level 16, which evolves into Meganium starting at level 32.

Along with Cyndaquil and Totodile, Chikorita is one of the three starter Pokémon of Johto.

It is available at the beginning of Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver.

Biology

Physiology

Chikorita is a small Pokémon that is primarily pale green in color, with a darker green leaf and necklace of buds. It has a large head in proportion to the rest of its body, with large red eyes that appear to have no pupils. It has four short legs with a single nailed toe each, and a small tail. Its most distinguishing feature is the large leaf on the top of its head, which is usually longer than the rest of its body.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Chikorita can spawn vines from its neck and create leaves from the big leaf on its head. Like many Grass-type Pokémon, its foliage emits a sweet odor that has calming and healing properties. This leaf also has the ability to check the temperature and humidity of the surrounding air.

Behavior

Chikorita, like many Grass-type Pokémon, are very docile. It prefers to avoid fights by using the aromatherapeutic properties of the large leaf on its head. It spends most of its time sunbathing, although it is unclear if this is because it needs to photosynthesize, or if it is because Chikorita is coldblooded and needs to warm itself up. It appears to be sensitive to changes in its environment, and can use the leaf on its head to help purify the air around it, as well as to seek out warm places. Chikorita are also sensitive emotionally, and become very upset when misunderstood.

Habitat

Chikorita are rare Pokémon mostly found in large open plains or small forests with other Chikorita, Bayleef, and Meganium. They prefer warmer climates. Chikorita are mostly handed out by Professor Elm.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Chikorita spend a lot of time basking in the sun, so they may use photosynthesis to feed themselves.

In the anime

Chikorita in the anime

Major appearances

Ash's Chikorita

Ash captured a Chikorita in The Chikorita Rescue. It had such high affections for Ash that sometimes came to a few faults, such as refusing to be switched out for Pikachu. Ash's Chikorita evolved in Current Events.

Casey's Chikorita

Casey's Chikorita was first seen in The Double Trouble Header. It was Casey's starter Pokémon. It evolved into a Bayleef in The Bug Stops Here, and later evolved into a Meganium.

Other

Silver also owns a Chikorita, as seen in The Search for the Legend. It behaves much in the same way to him as Pikachu does to Ash, including traveling on his shoulder.

A Chikorita was a member of Team Go-Getters in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Team Go-Getters out of the Gate!.

Another Chikorita, under the ownership of Lyra, appears along with Totodile and Cyndaquil in An Egg Scramble!. It battled Dawn's Piplup. It also subsequently appeared in Bagged Then Tagged!, where it participated in a tag battle against Ash and Dawn.

Chikorita has a role in Arceus and the Jewel of Life alongside the other Johto starters, Cyndaquil and Totodile.

Minor appearances

Professor Elm showed a photograph of a Chikorita to Ash and his friends in Don't Touch That 'dile.

Vincent received a Chikorita as his starter Pokémon as seen in the opening of The Legend of Thunder!.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Megaree

In Pokémon Adventures, Chikorita is the last of the three starter Pokémon to get a Trainer (in a similar fashion to Treecko never getting its rightful Trainer until Emerald steals him as a Sceptile, much later than the other two starters had). It escapes from Professor Elm and follows Crystal until she decides to accept it to her team, where it had to pass a test. Crystal's Chikorita wears a star pendant, formerly owned by Smoochum, who accepted Chikorita when its Trainer did. It later evolves into a Bayleef to protect Crys from a Larvitar, then into Meganium during a fight with Lugia along with the other two Johto starters (whose Trainers had been in a coma for weeks from their defeat against the Masked Man). Crys nicknamed it Megaree*/Mega*.

In the Magical Pokémon Journey manga

Main article: Chiko

In Magical Pokémon Journey, a Chikorita nicknamed Chiko appears.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

A Chikorita was stolen by Green before PM064 but was returned back to Professor Oak later on.

In the Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys manga

Black owned Bayleef as a Chikorita. It was his starter Pokémon when he began his journey in Johto. However, he stole the Chikorita from Professor Elm's lab instead of having Elm give it to him. It evolved into a Bayleef prior to meeting up with Gold again. During an encounter with Lapras, Black released the Bayleef after it failed to defeat Lapras and Gold took Bayleef in.

In the TCG

Main article: Chikorita (TCG)

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

When released from a Poké Ball, Chikorita unleashes a Razor Leaf that hits any opponent in its path.

Chikorita is also a Pokéfloat. It is one of the smallest and floats around Psyduck.

Trophy information

Chikorita was one of the first three Pokémon available in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal. A Grass-type Pokémon, it emits a delightful fragrance from the leaves on its head and loves to spend its time leisurely sunbathing. When called into battle, it uses its Razor Leaf move to strike at opponents' weak points.

File:SSBB Chikorita.png
Chikorita in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Chikorita returns to do the same as it did in Melee, unleashing Razor Leaf on release from a Poké Ball. It swings its leaf around violently until the green blades fly directly in front of it for a few seconds.

Trophy information

"A Leaf Pokémon. It loves sunbathing and can use the leaf on its head to check the temperature and humidity around it. Chikorita releases a sweet aroma from its leaf to becalm opponents into a slumber. It can also learn moves to help recover all Pokémon allies. Chikorita evolves into Bayleef by leveling up."
