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 skin color, a larger structure, claws and a horn-like protrusion on the back of its head, similar to that of an ornithopod's.

Special abilities

Charmeleon like its other evolutionary forms, can breathe fire. Its powers though, are much greater than Charmander's but lesser than Charizard's.

Evolution

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

Appearances

Anime

Main article: Ash's Charmeleon

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.

Mateo's Charmeleon

Ritchie's Charmeleon is seen in A Parent Trapped!, A Promise is a Promise, Oaknapped, and Celebi And Joy!.

In the Pokémon movie Celebi: Voice of the Forest, it is revealed that Professor Oak had a Charmeleon as a kid.
