==Biology==
Charmander is a bipedal, reptilian Pokémon with a primarily orange body. Its underside from the chest down and soles are cream-colored. It has two small fangs visible in its upper jaw and two smaller fangs in its lower jaw. Charmander has blue eyes. Its arms and legs are short with three to four fingers and three clawed toes. A fire burns at the tip of this Pokémon's slender tail and has blazed there since Charmander's birth. The flame can be used as an indication of Charmander's health and mood, burning brightly when the Pokémon is strong, weakly when it is exhausted, wavering when it is happy, and blazing when it is enraged. It is said that Charmander dies if its flame goes out. However, if the Pokémon is healthy, the flame will continue to burn even if it gets a bit wet and is said to steam in the rain.
 
Charmander's hand has an inconsistent number of fingers in its designs. The original sprites designed by [[Atsuko Nishida]] for {{game|Red and Green|s}} featured three fingers, while the artwork [[Ken Sugimori]] drew based on those sprites had four fingers. Since around 2013, the three-fingered hand design has been consistently readopted in the {{pkmn|Trading Card Game}} (including [[Charmander (Team Up 12)|Atsuko Nishida's own illustration of Charmander]]), the {{pkmn|anime}} (including the {{pkmn|movie}}s and specials such as [[Pokémon Origins]]), and artwork unrelated to games and merchandise; while the 3D models and the artwork based on those (such as that made for {{pkmn|Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!}}) still feature the four-fingered hands.
 
Charmander can be found in hot, {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Mountain Pokémon|mountainous areas}}. However, it is found far more often in the ownership of {{pkmn|Trainer}}s. As shown in [[Pokémon Snap]], Charmander exhibits pack behavior, calling others of its species if it finds food.
