Charmander is an orange, bipedal, reptilian creature. Charmander has two small fangs visible on its upper and lower jaws and blue eyes. It has a cream-colored underside and an expansive cream marking on the soles of its feet. Its arms and legs are short, and it has four fingers and three clawed toes. A flame burns on the tip of its tail, which is there even at birth. This flame can be used as an indication of Charmander's health and mood. The flame burns brightly when it is strong and weakly when it is weak. When Charmander is happy, the flame will waver; it will blaze if Charmander is enraged. It is said that Charmander dies if its flame goes out.
Charmander can be found in hot, mountainous areas. However, it is found far more often in the ownership of Trainers. As shown in Pokémon Snap, Charmander exhibits pack behavior, and will call others of its species if it finds food.
