Chikorita (Japanese: チコリータ Chikoriita) is the Grass-type Starter Pokémon of the Johto region.

Appearance

Chikorita in pokemon manga

Chikorita in the manga

Chikorita are a small dinosaur-like Pokémon, particularly resembling a Sauropoda. They are a light green color and their eyes are dull red. Around its neck are tiny buds that have the ability to shoot out into long vines. Its most notable feature is the large leaf on the top of its head. They have four short legs with one toenail on each foot.

Evolution

Chikorita evolves into Bayleef at level 16 and Meganium at level 32.

Special abilities

Chikorita have the ability Overgrow, which allows the user to do 150% damage when its HP is equal to or below 30%.

Aside from this, Chikorita can use a few more natural abilities. Vines can be shot out of its neck from the tiny buds that circle it, and they can create a large number of leaves from the one large leaf on the top of its head. Chikorita's leaf on top of its head also has calming abilities.

Evolution

Chikorita evolves into Bayleef at level 16.

Chikorita upset with Pikachu

Chikorita in the anime series is most notable for being one of Ash's Pokémon. Ash captured this Chikorita in the episode The Chikorita Rescue. Chikorita developed a small crush on Ash throughout the series, fighting for his attention, and even becoming jealous on Ash's other Pokémon, especially Pikachu.

Casey also got a Chikorita as her Starter Pokémon.

It is also known that Lyra, a character from Johto who made her first appearance in Diamond and Pearl, also has a Chikorita.

Game info

Chikorita first appeared in the Gold and Silver games as one of the three starter Pokémon at the beginning of the game. At level 16 it can evolve into a Bayleef.

Origin

Chikorita, along with its evolved forms, is based on the appearance of the Sauropoda dinosaur.

Name Origin

Chikorita's name is derived from the actual "chicory" plants.

Trivia

Chikorita has a higher chance of being male than female (it shares this trait with all starter Pokémon), which is ironic, considering that its appearance is distinctly feminine; the 'necklace' (which becomes petals later on) defines this.
