As Mega Charizard Y, it becomes sleeker in appearance but retains its normal coloration. It has three pointed horns on the back of its head, the middle of which is longer. Its snout has larger fangs and a ridge on the nose. Its neck is shorter, but its torso is thinner and longer. It features longer {{wp|digitigrade}} feet. Its hands are less developed, with extremely shortened fingers that are no longer separated from each other. Small wings develop on its wrists, while the ones on its back become larger, lose the wing finger passing through their membrane and end up with ragged edges. The back of its tail has a large spike at the base and three smaller ones near the tip, which now burns with a longer flame. Mega Charizard Y is said to have incredible flying prowess that is greater than a jet fighter.
As Gigantamax Charizard, it becomes larger and physically fit. The lower part of its body glows white with several yellow diamonds located on lower belly. There are also diamonds spots located on the front legs. The claws located on hand and feet become longer and sharp. The feet become longer and digitigrade, retaining small glowing soles under the forefeet. The wings are transformed into literal flame wings extending to the shoulder blade and two flames located on the horns. The sclera of the eyes becomes yellow, the glow of a flame can be seen in the mouth and the teeth grow, with the lower front teeth and three teeth in the middle now protruding when the mouth is closed. The flame on the tail extends out and has three red clouds surrounding it. The flames of Gigantamax Charizard's flames increase whenever it roars. The wings are capable of being hotter than Magmamagma which Charizard uses to burn its opponents.<ref></ref>
Charizard flies in search of powerful opponents to battle, and its fire will burn hotter as it gains experience. Its fiery breath is capable of melting boulders, massive glaciers, and has been known to accidentally cause forest fires. In the past, {{m|Blast Burn}} was its [[signature move]]. Charizard typically inhabit {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Mountain Pokémon|mountains and valleys}}, such as the [[Charicific Valley]] in [[Johto]]. [[EP134|The anime]] has shown that only a weak Charizard would show off its power. [[SS017|It also showed]] that Charizard is able tocan swim underwater, with [[Pokémon Origins]] further showing that the flame on the tip of the tail can still keep burning underwater.
