Charmander is a bipedal, reptile Pokémon with blue eyes and an orange body. It has a cream-colored underbelly from the breast down and cream-colored soles on its feet. Its top jaw has two tiny fangs and its lower jaw has two smaller fangs. A fire flames at the tip of Charmander’s short tail and has been there since his birth. Charmander’s health and attitude may be indicated by the flame, which burns brilliantly when the Pokémon is strong, faintly when it is fatigued, wavering when it is joyful, and scorching when it is angered. Charmander is reported to die if its flame goes out. If the Pokémon is healthy, though, the flame will continue to burn even if it gets a little wet and is known to steam in the rain.Charmander grows in hot, mountainous places. It is, however, significantly more common in the ownership of Trainers. Charmander, as shown in Pokémon Snap, demonstrates pack behavior, summoning other members of its kind whenever it finds food.Charmander is the fourth Pokemon in the Pokedex in the first generation… He is from the Kanto area and is a fiery type. This Pokémon develops into Charmeleon after consuming 25 candies.

The flame at the tip of the Lizard Pokémon’s tail represents its emotions. When it’s having fun, the flame sways. However, if that Pokémon becomes insane, the flames explode.
