why is it confirmed that charla is a female? no one said LegendaryFlame

Her Japanese name is Lisa, and she wears a bow. Porygon-Z 14:35, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Actually, I believe Liza said it herself. --ケンジガール 20:13, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Why does it say Charla's Female but Ash's is unknown? (GT4GTR 09:23, 10 November 2008 (UTC))

Ok that is wrong in so many ways Ash's Charizard has to be a male otherwise Charla would never have fallen for him, She wears a bow and even has a ladies name in both the original and the dub, could there be any more evidence short of them telling you themselves. You would not see a male charizard going around with a bow on it's head and since she has fallen for Ash's Charizard I think it is a male unless Charla is a lesbein and I don't think they allow that kind of thing on pokemon. Sheesh whoever thinks Charla is not a female needs a reality check, same goes for people who think Charizard is a female. De Wolfy is here 15:19, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Caught at

Is it confermed that Charla was caught in Johto? I don't remember anyone mentioning it.--Misty-May-Dawn rulz 10:37, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Who changed the picture

That picture sucks. You can barely see Charla. It's centered on Liza. I was going to change it back to the first one but someone deleted it. Get a new picture. That isn't acceptable. --ケンジガール 03:19, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

I will change the picture when I take a few from the DVDs and then I will put a few up when I get the time. De Wolfy is here 15:18, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Charmander

Umm... Lisa's page says it's evolved from a Charmander, but this isn't. Clarification please. I think it didn't evolve from a Charmander... ht14 02:45, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

I call for an analysis of the original Japanese version of the episode in question. I definitely recall Liza saying she raised Charla from a Charmander in the dub. However, an analysis of the original Japanese episode will tell us if that implication is in fact canon, or dub-added. --Shiningpikablu252 02:50, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Wait, someone suggested I'm going to do the analysis? If I had access to the Japanese version of the episode and a way to decipher the audio, of which I have neither, I would have had everything done by myself by now! The only reason I even called for someone to do an analysis is because I can't do it myself! --Shiningpikablu252 03:02, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Then who's gonna do it?! CuboneKing 03:03, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
The call was more for a volunteer than anything...--Shiningpikablu252 03:07, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
I'll volunteer to do it. I have the Japanese version of that episode and I can decipher the audio.
OK, I just did an anyalsis and in the Japanese version, she said "Lisa-chan is a special Charizard. She is cute and she doesn't normally battle the other Charizard." In that whole line of dialogue, Lisa raising Charla from a Charmander was not mentioned even once. So Ht14 is right. This is a dubbing error. --Hmdwgf 04:04, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Knows Fly?

Since Liza is riding on her back, doesn't it mean she knows Fly? WellyDawn 17:47, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Deletion

I think that this article is way too small to be able to be considered its own article. I think this article should be deleted and the information on here should be merged with the information section for Charla on the article for Liza. (Charizard101 (talk) 14:59, 30 September 2012 (UTC))

I disagree! Charla is one of the reasons Ash left Charizard there in the first place! Sure the article needs some work, but we can fix it to where it's the best article on Bulbapedia! --Doggy567123 (talk) 03:23, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Well I think that unless Charla appears again in some sort of episode in which Ash's Charizard makes another appearance, this article in a way contains old information and it really wouldn't make much of a difference if it was moved to a new section on Liza's article. (Charizard101 (talk) 03:08, 28 October 2012 (UTC))
She might appear again if Ash uses Charizard in the Unova League. --Doggy567123 (talk) 21:49, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
This page isn't going anywhere. She's appeared in a number of episodes, and was a major asset in many of them. Not to mention she's Charizard's girlfriend, that's pretty important. Pink Butterfree has a page too. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:29, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
I just think that it doesn't really matter if she is Charizard's girlfriend because Charizard hasn't made an appearance since the Battle Frontier. And I also don't really think that Ash is going to use Charizard in the Unova League as it wouldn't follow the pattern that has been set over the years. (Charizard101 (talk) 19:07, 3 November 2012 (UTC))
And Butterfree hasn't appeared since the 21st episode. Episode appearance for Charizard means nothing. Pink Butterfree still stands. Charla should also still stand. --ケンジガール 19:17, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
I have to say I agree with everyone else. Charla's one of the major reasons why Ash's own Charizard decided to stay behind in the valley to train, and she's appeared in at least a couple of important episodes. And who knows, she and Charizard could return for the Unova League (like they did for the Battle Frontier, and a majority of Ash's other old Pokémon appeared in the Sinnoh League episodes anyway). Though I do have to say that the article really needs more content (I'd add a few things myself, but I'm not sure what exactly, especially since I haven't seen most of the older episodes in a long time).

Character icon

Speaking of the Pink Butterfree, does anyone else think we should create a new icon for Charla in her infobox to show that she has a pink bow on her head? We do have customized icons for the aformentioned Butterfree and the Crystal Onix, after all. GamerGeek 01:29, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

It's too small of a change. Unlike the Pink Butterfree and the Crystal Onix, Charla only has a bow whereas the other to had color changes.--ForceFire 02:41, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
Even though it's small, having an icon specially made for Charla featuring the bow would be better, since that's the main feature which distinguishes her from all the other Charizard in the anime. And the other two aformentioned Pokémon get customized sprites of their own, so it's only for consistency (and fairness) that Charla would get her own too. Of course, I'd make it myself, but I can't upload images. GamerGeek 07:27, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
No, this has nothing to do with consistency or "fairness". Charla's bow isn't significant in any way, other than letting her trainer know immediately which Charizard is hers in the many that are at the island. The other two get their own sprites because they actually have a condition making them how they are. Adding a bow to Charla would be like giving Ash's Sceptile its twig, Jigglypuff a microphone, or Madame Muchmoney's Granbull its bows. R.A. Hunter Blade 07:52, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
"Charla's bow isn't significant in any way, other than letting her trainer know immediately which Charizard is hers in the many that are at the island."
Um, you kinda contradicted yourself in that statement. How is letting her trainer know who she is among many others not significant? And I don't see why we can't have custom sprites for Sceptile, Jigglypuff, or Granbull, because they are the major defining physical traits of those particular Pokémon, regardless of their individual significance.
Again, this isn't a big deal, it's something I had in mind, because Charla isn't some random unknown Trainer's Charizard; she's Liza's Charizard and the girlfriend of Ash's own Charizard, and she always wears the bow. GamerGeek 08:12, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
That's not contradictory, nor especially significant. Many trainers use accessories to tell which Pokémon belongs to them. Like I already said though, the reason Butterfree and Onix get sprites is because they're actually different than an average member of their species, physically speaking. Throwing a bow, or scarf, or sunglasses on only shows the personality or the Pokémon or their trainer, not a physical condition/trait that absolutely defines them from everything else. R.A. Hunter Blade 16:44, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
