User Summary

Charizard was one of several different character choices conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Ken Sugimori for the first generation of Pocket Monsters games Red and Green, which were localized outside Japan as Pokémon Red and Blue. Originally called "Lizardon" in Japanese, Nintendo decided to give the various Pokémon species "clever and descriptive names" related to their appearance or features when translating the game for western audiences as a means to make the characters more relatable to American children. As a result, they were renamed "Charizard", a combination of the words "charcoal" or "char" and "lizard". During an interview, Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara stated Charizard was expected to be popular with North American audiences because of their preference for strong, powerful characters.

Stage 1 Charmander is a Fire-type Pokémon.
Stage 2 It evolves into Charmeleon starting at level 16.
Stage 3 Evolves into Charizard (Fire/Flying) starting at level 36. Charizard can mega-evolve into two forms. In Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun, and Pokémon Ultra Moon a special Charizard is available to ride. Ironically, charizard - as a Pokémon - is not otherwise available in Alola.
