Charizard is draconic, bipedal Pokémon. It is covered mainly in orange scales with a cream underside. It has a long snout and neck, small blue eyes, and two horns protruding from the back of its head. There are large wings with teal undersides sprouting from its back. Its arms are short and skinny, and its hands have three clawed fingers. Its feet have three clawed toes and cream-colored soles.
When holding Charizardite X, Charizard can Mega Evolve into Mega Charizard X. Its skin turns black with a blue underside from the lower jaw to the tip of the tail. It gains two curved, blue spikes on each shoulder and the tips of its horns turn blue as well. There are now two curved spikes on the back of its neck. The edges of its wings are divided into large, rounded sections and the joint has a curved spike on it. Mega Charizard X breathes blue flames out the sides of its mouth, and the flame on its tail now burns blue as well.
Through the use of Charizardite Y, Charizard can Mega Evolve into Mega Charizard Y. This Pokémon grows a third horn on the back of its head between the original two, which are now shorter. Small wings develop on its wrist, while the ones on its back now have ragged edges. There are several spines along the length of its tail. It retains its cream underside, but it now extends up to its lower jaw.
This Pokémon 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. Charizard typically inhabit mountains and valleys. The anime has shown that many Charizard are found in the Charicific Valley of the Johto region.
Charizard returns as a playable Pokémon in Pokkén Tournament 2. A large change to Charizard is in his Synergy Burst mode. In the original title, Charizard would transform into Mega Charizard X to deal more damage. In Pokkén Tournament 2, Charizard now transforms into Mega Charizard Y, with Mega Charizard X being part of his Synergy Burst ƒ instead. Charizard is once again classified as a Power fighter.
