Charmeleon (Japanese??—? Lizardo) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Charmander starting at level 16 and evolves into Charizard starting at level 36.

Biology

Charmeleon is a bipedal, reptilian creature. It has crimson scales and a cream underside. There is a horn-like protrusion on the back of its head, and it has narrow green eyes and a long snout. It has relatively long arms with three sharp claws. Its short legs have feet with three claws and cream-colored soles. The tip of its long, powerful tail has a flame burning on it. The temperature rises to unbearable levels if Charmeleon swings its tail.

Charmeleon has 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. However, it will relax once it has won. It is rare in the wild, but it can be found in mountainous areas.

Charmeleon in Pokémon Adventures
Main article: Blue's Charmeleon
Main article: Salamè

Charmeleon debuts in Onix is On!, part of the Red, Green & Blue chapter, battling in the Pewter Gym as one of Blue's Pokémon. It evolved from Charmander sometime between The Secret of Kangaskhan and this round. When Red and Blue collided in Celadon City, Red mistakenly picked up the Poké Ball of Blue's Charmeleon, but he managed to give it back to Blue later. It has since evolved into Charizard with Blue's harsh training, and became even more powerful, assisting in the defeat of both the Team Rocket triads Koga and Sabrina, and continued to act as the powerhouse for both Blue and Red, in the two times it was (temporarily) traded to him since then.

X's Charmander, Salamè, later evolved into a Charmeleon alongside Marrisso who evolved into a Quilladin in PAXY22.

Trivia

  • Charmeleon and its evolution share their category name with FlareonMoltres, and Infernape. They are all known as the Flame Pokémon.
  • Charmeleon, Quilava, and their respective evolutionary lines have exactly the same base stats.

Origin

Charmeleon resembles a small dinosaur with remnants of Charmander's salamander-like appearance. Although its nomenclature suggests commonality with the chameleon, Charmeleon exhibits very few of the major physiologically distinguishing traits of the chameleon. Charmeleon does not have the specialized zygodactylic feet, separately mobile eyes, extrudable tongue, or the ability to change color like some members of the chameleon species. The few characteristics it does share are the snout, a prominent head crest (which resembles a small horn in its Generation I back sprite), and extensive use of its tail. Chameleons have prehensile tails used for climbing and grasping, while Charmeleon utilizes its tail as a weapon.

Name origin

Charmeleon is a portmanteau of the word char (to burn) and chameleon.

Lizardo is the transliteration of the English word lizard.
