Charla (Japanese: リサ Lisa) is a Charizard belonging to Liza who lives in the Charicific Valley.


Liza and Charla in the Best Wishes series.

Charla belongs to Liza, who maintains the Valley. When Ash and his friends were going through the Valley, they had the opportunity to meet Charla. Charla is Liza's only Pokémon, and her greatest partner, seeing as she travels with her to places outside the valley. Charla was also the only non-wild Pokémon in the valley when Ash and his friends met her.

Charla made a brief cameo appearance in Spell of the Unown with Liza and other Charizard from the Charicific Valley.

In Great Bowls of Fire!, it was revealed that Ash's Charizard became Charla's bodyguard and it's apparent that Charla has fallen for it.

Charla appeared in a flashback in The Fires of a Red-Hot Reunion!.

Personality and characteristics

Charla was considered to be Liza's most trusted Pokémon out of the other Charizard in the Charicific Valley. During her debut episode, Charla had very little trouble in showing her flying skills in contrast to Ash's Charizard when they first arrived in the Valley. Charla started to bond with Ash's Charizard overtime during its stay at the Valley.

  • Charla's Japanese name, リサ Lisa, comes from Charizard's Japanese name, リザードン Lizardon, and is also a girl's name. Likewise, her English name is a portmanteau of Carla, a girl's name, and Char, part of the name of all of the members of the Charmander evolution family.
  • In her first appearance, she was much larger than Ash's Charizard. The next time the two were seen, she was the same size as it. This probably due to the fact that Ash's Charizard has grown stronger (hence, a higher level and bigger size) over its 119-episode absence.
