[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Ash's Charmeleon evolved into Charizard to chase down an Aerodactyl that had grabbed Ash in the episode Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon. Despite the evolution, it still continued to disobey Ash until it was frozen solid in the episode Charizard Chills. After getting Charizard out of the ice, which took the whole night to melt, Ash earned Charizard's respect and it started obeying him.

Charizard was left at the Charicific Valley in the episode Charizard's Burning Ambition; since then Ash has called upon it from time to time, including against Brandon in Ash's second rematch against Brandon. Ash's Charizard makes its return during Ash's journey in the Unova region after the Unova League's conclusion.

[edit] Movies

Ash's Charizard was featured in the Pikachu Short Pikachu's Vacation, along with the films Mewtwo Strikes Back, The Power of One and The Spell of the Unown. A Charizard aligned with Mewtwo also appeared in Mewtwo Returns. A Wild Charizard was featured in Destiny Deoxys, and another trainer used a Charizard in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Charizard finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. In these tiers it is a destructive Special Sweeper, but its Speed also allows it to run a physical sweeping set with Swords Dance.

Keeping Stealth Rock on your opponent's side is a great way to take Charizard out, as it loses 50% of its HP if it switches in while this entry hazard is active. Even the toughest Special Walls have trouble against Charizard whilst Solar Power is active; getting a Revenge-KO is one way to take it down. Paralysis will definitely hurt its chances at both sweeping and survival.
