Charmander - Pokemon Red and Blue

Artwork of Charmander for Pokémon Red and Blue

Charmander is a small, bipedal, dinosaur-like Pokémon. Most of its body is colored orange, while its underbelly is a light yellow color. Charmander, along with all of its evolved forms, has a flame that is constantly burning on the end of their tails.

Abilities

Charmander has the ability Blaze, which allows their Fire-type attacks to cause 150% more damage if their health drops below 30%.

As a natural ability, Charmander can produce flames inside of itself and project them from its mouth, meaning that it can breathe fire. The power of its flame attacks can be gauged by the size of the flame on its tail.

Old-Charmeleon

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. 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.

Charizard’s Red & Blue Artwork

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 gives Charizard the capability of flying.

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

Behavior

Charizard is noble and will not turn the full power of its flame on opponents significantly weaker than they are.

Special abilities

The fire on Charizard’s tail will change to a bluish-white color if it is furious. Given its dragon-like appearance, it is logical that Charizard is capable of learning many Dragon moves, such as Dragon Breath, Dragon Pulse etc. However, it becomes a true Dragon-type as Mega Charizard X.
