Charizard (Japanese: リザードン Rizaadon) is the Fire-type Starter Pokémon of the Kanto region, evolved fromCharmeleon and the final evolution of Charmander. Charizard is the mascot of Pokémon Red and its remake,Pokémon FireRed.



Charizard is a large dragon-like Pokémon that differs greatly from its pre-evolved form. The red skin color of Charmeleon is no longer apparent, as Charizard appears to have reverted to the orange/yellow color of Charmander. The single horn that was on the back of its head is now two, one on either side. The most notable difference between Charizard and its pre-evolved forms are the large wings that have developed on its back, which give Charizard the capability of flying.

Charizard's Mega Evolution using Charizardite X is different from Charizard, as it now has gray body color and blue flames, while using Charizardite Y Mega Charizard has a big horn on the top of its head and larger wings.

Special abilities

The fire on Charizard's tail will change to a bluish-white color if it furious. Given its dragon-like appearance, it makes sense that Charizard is capable of learning many Dragon moves such as Dragon Breath, Dragon Pulseetc. However,it is of Dragon type as Mega Charizard X.


Charizard evolves from Charmeleon as of level 36. Charizard is the final evolved form of Charmander. Charizard can evolve into its mega form in Pokémon X/Y, during battle. And has two mega evolutions, most likely to create differences in the games, X and Y.
