Physiology and Behaviour

Appearances

Main Pokémon games

Other Pokémon games

In the anime

Ash's Charmeleon was rather unruly, especially compared to its previous form. It regular disobeyed orders, a behavior that continued as it evolved into a Charizard

Zippo, Ritchie's Charmeleon, is another major Charmeleon. He evolved from a Charmander sometime while Ash traveled Johto and was used to fight Butch and Cassidy but, failed to their Pokémon's headgear. He was not seen again until the Chronicles episodes where he is used again to stop Butch and Cassidy from kidnapping Professor Oak.

In the manga

Origin and inspiration

Charmeleon is a portmanteau of the word char and chameleon.

Charmeleon resembles more a small dinosaur than its namesake chameleon. The only shared features are the snout, a prominent head crest, and its extensive use of its tail.
