Charmeleon (Japanese: リザード, HepburnRizaado) (char-MEE-lee-un[1]) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology[]

Physiology[]

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, like its other evolutionary forms, can naturally breathe fire. Its powers, though, are much greater than Charmander's, but not as great as Charizard's.

Charmeleon is also much 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.

In their fervor, their tails often begin to burn a bluish-white; at night, they can light up mountainsides like stars if groups of them are present. Enraged Charmeleon often take out their anger on their surroundings, incinerating anything flammable around them with unrestrained Flamethrowers.

This stage is often likened to a human’s teenage years--moody and reckless. For starting trainers, reining in disobedient Charmeleon can be extremely challenging, as well as potentially dangerous if not handled well. However, with proper care and treatment, a trainer can earn a Charmeleon’s respect, and eventually its obedience as well.

Charmeleon, along with Charmander and Charizard, can be found in hot, rocky mountainous areas.

Evolution[]

Charmeleon evolves from Charmander at level 16, and evolves into Charizard in level 36.

Trivia[]

  • Charmeleon is the first Pokémon in the Pokédex that gains a type upon evolving (in this case, it gains the Flying-type once it evolves into Charizard).

Origin[]

Charmeleon resembles a small dinosaur with remnants of Charmander's salamander-like appearance, with the body plan of a therapod and the head crest of a Parasaurolophus. 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 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.

Etymology[]

  • Japanese: リザード (Rizādo in Romaji) literally means lizard.
  • English: Charmeleon's English name comes from combining the words char (burn) and chameleon.
  • French: "Reptincel" comes from the combination of the words "reptile" (reptile) and "étincelle" (sparkle).
