Charmeleon is a first-generation Pokémon of the Fire type. It is the evolved form of Charmander.

Pokédex Data

When Charmander evolves into Charmeleon, its skin changes to a crimson shade of red and its claws elongate into sharp talons. A single horn protrudes from the back of its head and the creature's overall height increases.

While Charmander could be a loyal and playful companion, Charmeleon is much more aggressive. It becomes excited by the possibility of battle and its tail flame will burn blue the more pumped it gets. When Charmeleon gets riled up, it has a tendency to get carried away and ignore its Trainer.
