Biology

Physiology

Chikorita in the manga

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

Behavior

Chikorita are docile and friendly, spending a lot of time in the sun to soak up the sun's rays.

Natural Abilities

Chikorita can use a few more natural abilities. Vines can be shot out of its neck from the tiny buds that circle it, and it 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 and Meganium at level 32.

Game info

Chikorita first appeared in the Gold and Silver games as one of the three starter Pokémon at the beginning of the game.

Appearances

Anime

Main article: Ash's Bayleef

Ash's Chikorita.

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 of Ash's other Pokémon, especially Pikachu, who was close to Ash.

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.

Petting Spots

  • Favored Spot: The leaf.
  • Disfavored Spot: The buds on its neck.

Trivia

  • Chikorita, along with its evolved forms, is based on the appearance of the Sauropoda dinosaur.
  • Due to its leaf, Chikorita is the tallest out of all the Grass starter type Pokémon.
  • Chikorita has the similar cry to Igglybuff, but Igglybuff has a low pitch and Chikorita is more high pitched.
  • In Super Smash Bros., Chikorita is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, it uses the move Razor Leaf.
  • Originally, shiny Chikorita was orange. But in later generations, its color was changed to yellow.

Origin

Like the rest of its evolutionary family, Chikorita is based on a sauropod. It also resembles a pear with legs.

Etymology

Chikorita's name is derived from the actual "chicory" plants and the Spanish suffix "-ita", defined as small, fused together.
