Charmeleon (リザード Rizādo?, Lizardo in original Japanese language versions) is one of the 493 fictional species of Pokémon creatures from the Pokémon media franchise. The purpose of Charmeleon in the games, anime and manga, as with all other Pokémon, is to battle both wild Pokémon, untamed creatures encountered while the player passes through various environments, and tamed Pokémon owned by Pokémon trainers.[1] Like its evolutionary relations, Charmeleon has a flame burning at the end of its tail; however, unlike its peaceful basic form, Charmander, Charmeleon constantly seeks battles, calming down only when it wins. Charmeleon can attack with its claws as well as its fiery tail, and can breathe fire when excited. Charmeleon artwork by Ken Sugimori © This image is copyrighted. ...

Charmeleon’s name is a portmanteau of “char” (to burn) and “chameleon” (a small lizard). However, Charmeleon should not be considered the Pokémon equivalent to a chameleon, as it has only one actual relationship with the real world animal, the crest on its head, (the Pokémon Kecleon has more liknesses though). Its Japanese name originates in a pronunciation of the word “lizard” for its reptilian nature. Look up portmanteau word in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Biological characteristics

Charmeleon is a dark red, bipedal lizard with a single horn on the back of its head similar to real-life dinosaurs of the Saurolophus family. Its relations Charmander and Charizard are light red-orange, and Charmeleon is the darkest member of its evolutionary group. Its forearms, which now bear long, sharp claws, are much larger and more defined than the Charmander which precedes it, and unlike its more docile pre-evolution, this Pokémon has a very short temper and has been known to spit bluish flames and burning pieces of dust when agitated. It is excessively savage by nature, and loves fighting. When it is excited, the flame on its tail may turn bluish-white as well. It slashes mercilessly at opponents with its powerful claws and lashes about with its flame-tipped tail to knock down opponents, greatly heating the area in the process. Extreme caution is advised when approaching this vicious Pokémon. Binomial name Saurolophus osborni Brown, 1912 Species S osborni S. angustirostris Rozhdestvensky, 1952 Saurolophus is a large hadrosaurid. ... Charmander Hitokage in original Japanese language versions) is the fourth of the 493 fictional species of Pokémon creatures from the Pokémon media franchise. ...
