Artwork of Charmeleon for Pokémon Red and Blue

Charmeleon is a small, bipedal, dinosaur-like Pokémon with an appearance similar to that of its pre-evolved form, Charmander. Charmeleon differs from Charmander in that it has a much darker red skin color, a larger body structure, claws, and a horn-like protrusion on the back of its head, similar to that of an ornithopod's. Its claws are razor sharp and its tail is very strong.

Behavior

Charmeleon is more aggressive than Charmander. It is believed to have 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. It is a very ruthless, pitiless and zealous fighter often using its claws. However, it will relax once it has won. Because of this trainers need to be cautious if they find one in the wild. Although it is rare to find Charmeleon in the wild. If they chose a Charmander as their starter Pokémon then they may not need to be as cautious, but one needs to be firm with them. Its love of battle makes it a good choice for trainers who wish to participate in Gym Battles, although it has been used in Pokémon Contests as well. Despite this fearsome reputation Charmeleon is very loyal to its trainer provided that one treats it right.

Habitat

Charmeleon, along with Charmander and Charizard, can be found in hot, rocky mountainous areas.

Special abilities

Charmeleon, like its other evolutionary forms, can breathe fire. Its powers though, are much greater than Charmander's, but not as great as Charizard's.

Evolution

Charmeleon evolves from Charmander starting at level 16 and evolves into Charizard once it reaches level 36.

Main article: Ash's Charizard

Ash Ketchum owned a Charmeleon early on in his travels. His Charmeleon had evolved from a Charmander that Ash had befriended. Unlike the obedient Charmander, Charmeleon was rebellious and never listened to Ash's commands, even attacking him sometimes. It only spent three episodes as a Charmeleon, The March of the Exeggutor Squad, The Problem with Paras, and Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon. Since it evolved from a Charmander into a Charmeleon in The March of the Exeggutor Squad, the first episode it had been featured in, and from Charmeleon into a Charizard in Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon, the third episode it had been featured, it had been only Charmeleon for one entire episode, The Problem with Paras.
