Charmeleon debuts in ''[[PS005|Onix is On!]]'', where it is seen battling in the [[Pewter Gym]] as one of {{adv|Blue}}'s Pokémon. He evolved from Charmander sometime between ''[[PS003|The Secret of Kangaskhan]]'' and this round. When {{adv|Red}} and Blue collided in Celadon City, Red mistakenly picked up the Poké Ball of Blue's Charmeleon, but he managed to give it back to Blue later. He has since evolved into {{p|Charizard}} with Blue's intense training, and became even more powerful, assisting in the defeat of both the [[Team Rocket]] triads [[Koga]] and [[Sabrina]], and continued to act as the powerhouse for both Blue and Red, in the two times it was (temporarily) traded to him since then.

Charmeleon (Japanese: リザード Lizardo) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Charmander starting at level 16 and evolves into Charizard starting at level 36.

Contents

Biology

Charmeleon is a bipedal, reptilian Pokémon. It has dark red scales and a cream underside from the chest down. It has narrow, blue eyes and a long snout with a slightly hooked tip. On the back of its head is a single horn-like protrusion. It has relatively long arms with three sharp claws. Its short legs have plantigrade feet with three claws and cream-colored soles. The tip of its long, powerful tail has a flame burning on it. The temperature rises to unbearable levels if Charmeleon swings its tail.

Charmeleon has a vicious nature and will constantly seek out opponents. Strong opponents excite this Pokémon, causing it to spout bluish-white flames that torch its surroundings. However, it will relax once it has won. It is rare in the wild, but it can be found in mountainous areas.

Charmeleon debuted in Onix is On!, where it was seen battling in the Pewter Gym as one of Blue's Pokémon. He evolved from Charmander sometime between The Secret of Kangaskhan and this round. When Red and Blue collided in Celadon City, Red mistakenly picked up the Poké Ball of Blue's Charmeleon, but he managed to give it back to Blue later. He has since evolved into Charizard with Blue's intense training and became even more powerful, assisting in the defeat of both the Team Rocket triads Koga and Sabrina, and continued to act as the powerhouse for both Blue and Red, in the two times it was (temporarily) traded to him since then.

Trivia

Origin

Charmeleon resembles a small dinosaur with remnants of Charmander's salamander-like appearance, with the body plan of a theropod and a single horn on the top of the head, itself bearing a resemblance with theropod's crests such as the one of Parasaurolophus.

Although its nomenclature suggests commonality with the chameleon, its Japanese name, Lizardo, clarifies that Charmeleon is rather based on lizards, with the chameleon term being used to make a word play in the English name. As such, Charmeleon doesn't have the traits that set chameleons apart from lizards, with the main traits derived from it having an appearance which is intermediate between that of Charmander and that of Charizard, reflecting its role in Charmander's evolutionary family.

Name origin

Charmeleon is a portmanteau of the word char (to burn) and chameleon.

Lizardo is the transliteration of the English word lizard.
