Charmeleon is a Fire-type Pokémon that evolves from Charmander at Level 16 and evolves into Charizard at Level 36.


Charmeleon is a bipedal, reptilian Pokémon with 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 Charmeleon's 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 Charmeleon, causing it to spout bluish-white flames that torch its surroundings. However, it will relax once it has won.


Charmeleon can be found in mountainous areas.
