Chikorita is a Grass-type Pokémon that evolves into Bayleef at Lv. 16, which evolves into Meganium at Lv. 32.


Chikorita is a pale green Pokémon with a darker necklace of buds. It has a large head in proportion to the rest of its body with large red eyes that appear to lack pupils. It has four short legs with a single nailed toe on each and a small tail. Its most distinguishing feature is the large leaf on the top of its head, which is usually longer than the rest of its body.


Chikorita tends to be docile in nature.

Ash's Bayleef, as a Chikorita, was extremely stubborn and reckless.


Chikorita can be found in grasslands, forests and jungles.


Aside from the soothing aroma that wafts from its leaf, Chikorita can use it to determine the temperature and humidity of the surrounding air.
