Charizard is a dual-type Fire/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation I.
It evolves from Charmeleon starting at level 36. It is the final form of Charmander.
Charizard has three other forms.
It can Mega Evolve into two forms: Mega Charizard X using Charizardite X. Mega Charizard Y using Charizardite Y. It has a Gigantamax form.
Charizard is the game mascot of both Pokémon Red and FireRed Versions.
Charizard flies in search of powerful opponents to battle, and its fire will burn hotter as it gains experience. Its fiery breath is capable of melting boulders, massive glaciers, and has been known to accidentally cause forest fires. In the past, Blast Burn was its signature move. Charizard typically inhabits mountains and valleys, such as the Charicific Valley in Johto. The anime has shown that only a weak Charizard would show off its power. It also showed that Charizard can swim underwater, with Pokémon Origins further showing that the flame on the tip of the tail can still keep burning underwater. The wings of Charizard can carry to an altitude of 4,600 feet (1,400 meters).
Charizard is the only known Pokémon capable of using the exclusive G-Max Move G-Max Wildfire.
