From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Charla (Japanese: リサ Lisa) is a Charizard who lives in the Charicific Valley. She is voiced by 愛河里花子 Rikako Aikawa in both Japanese and English.
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.
In Great Bowls of Fire, it was revealed that Charizard became Charla's bodyguard and it's apparent that Charla has fallen for Charizard.
- Her 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 comes from a portmanteau of Carla, a girl's name, with Char, part of the name of all of the members of the Charmander evolution family.
- Her Japanese name is almost identical to her trainer's English name, Liza.
