CharizardUploaded by ModernSpongeBobSucks
Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated ...read more.
You guys are stupid. Why is a simple dragon ranked higher than a Pokemon who can destroy an entire dimension (Palkia), and a Pokemon who can reshape the entire planet to its will (Groudon)? All that Charizard can do is breathe fire and fly, and do attacks based off of those two things. I'm not saying that he's bad because he isn't rare, but the most powerful Pokemon tend to be rare. Also, even though he has two mega evolutions, that doesn't make him better. It means you can choose between two different forms that aren't great. Even if there had to be a non-legendary Pokemon in the top 10, there are so much better choices such as Dragonite, Tyranitar, Salamance, Garchomp or Hydreigon. Most of you just think he's amazing because in the games you leveled him up to 100 in a few days (which is completely unrealistic if you think about it) and now he can beat anything for you. If you had him at the same level as a legendary Pokemon such as Zekrom, he'd be shot down with a single lightning ...more
First off, Started off playing fire red. I choose charmander and never looked back. At level 60 he destroyed the elite 4 with only a few full restores. Best pokemon ever! To bad they keep making him weaker in every gen. Guess he was just too awesome. I always bring charizard in all of my games and even in the newest ones he still incinerates all others.
They didn't make him weaker. They actually attempted to make him stronger, but they failed at even doing that. - Ricky555
AT FIRST WHEN I SAW CHARIZARD I LOVE HIM ALREADY AND I GUESS HE IS STRONG, WONDERFUL, AMAZING AND FEARFUL, FORTUNATELY MY GUESS WAS RIGHT AND FROM THAT MOMENT CHARIZARD IS ONE OF THE THING THAT CHANGES ME BEFORE TO WHO I AM NOW! I HAVE SEEN MANY OF CHARIZARD'S EPISODES IN THE ANIME AND I WATCHED IT AGAIN AGAIN... AND THEN THERE ARE EPISODES THAT HE HAD BATTLES WITH OTHER Pokemon THAT HE LOSE BUT I STILL LOVED HIM AND WHEN THERE COMES AN EPISODE THAT HE BEATS ARTICUNO AND DRAGONITE I LOVED AND LIKED HIM BETTER AND BETTER! AND AT LAST ONE THING THAT I LOVED CHARIZARD IS THAT HE DOESN'T GIVE UP EASILY HE GIVES ALL WHAT HE GOT IN ALL THE CHALLENGES HE FACE! THAT'S WHY I LOVE CHARIZARD AND HE DESERVED TO BE IN THIS LISTS EVEN HE IS NOT A LEGENDARY
Chill, what's up with the caps? Anime doesn't prove anything. And I certainly do not think he deserves this list, he's higher up than Groudon for Arceus' sake! And there are better Pokemon to put at #12. He's just a PLAIN old dragon, no detail that makes it unique, and all dragons breathe fire. - lynxa
He is not strong, it's a dragon that breaths fire, that's not a dragon! And they don't give up because they can't, they either faint, get switched out, or win... - Banette-marionette
Charizard is great! Although, I seem to have a slight problem with my Amazing Dragon... Yesterday we were training, when suddenly a little sneaky pebble fell near him. It was so strange... Charizard hasn't stop crying since and won't talk to me. I'm getting very worried because there's something green coming out of his butt, somebody help please!
Charizard is overrated and it sucks. - PEENER
Kill it with rocks. I mean, weak design (An English dragon), really frail, Mega Zard X should have never existed because Charizard is a lizard, not a dragon. Also only Mewtwo deserved two megas as it IS Mewtwo. Rocks are a huge part of competitive play, dooming the weakling to NU. Never go to the anime for reasons on why your favorite Pokemon is so good, as it is really unreliable.
Get charizard OFF this list hint hint ROCK TYPE MOVES - Gh_player
Mr. Demolisher, I'd say. The ultimate fire Pokemon. I say that this Pokemon is the strongest because first it learns really powerful moves just like blast burn and overheat. Also, it is a original. Arceus came from the 4th generation, which you can't get from the earlier generations. Lastly, why Charizard should he the strongest Pokemon is because his special ability, blaze and solar power kicks butt!
Charizard may not be a Legendary but that doesn't mean it can't still kick ass better than a Legendary. The Anime even states this thing is a beast so powerful Ash had to leave it (that's not how it actually goes but you get what I mean). VOTE CHARIZARD!
I've been training Charizard in my pokemon leaf green version game and I must say, this pokemon is epic! It's looks and power are something to die for!
It has been my all time favourite and will be one till there's pokemon!
This is a list of the strongest pokemon mine beat. Blastoise, Zapdos, Moltres, Articuno, charizard, Mewtwo, Arcanine, Tyranitar, Pidgeot, Rhydon, Golem, Dragonite, Kingdra, Lapras, Snorlax, Crobat, Sceptile, Gyarados, Salamence,... That's why a trained charizard is the strongest pokemon ever.
My trained graveler beat Charizard, shouldn't that make graveler better - Flying-Walrus-On-A-Cactus
Just because one person has a good Charizard doesn't make it a good Pokemon. - Banette-marionette
Charizard is a very unique and strong Pokemon in the newer games because he can learn dragon pulse which eliminates most dragon type Pokemon that stand in it's way. Although he is very weak against rock type moves he is quick which will give him a slight advantage.
Oh really? Dragon pulse? Serperior can learn that too, and yet where is it on this list? Face it, Charizard is GARBAGE! - Totaldramatime
It is the most iconic Pokemon of all it is nostalgic. Its powerful also very powerful it is a dragon type without even being a dragon type meaning that it can take out other dragons well. Fire- Flying is a great combo
To be honest, fire flying is not the best combo, nor will it ever be. - Ricky555
I think charizard is the best Pokemon ever and is possible to beat any Pokemon I know because I have Beat every Pokemon with charizard I and as grate as that sounds I truly think salamence he my all time Pokemon I can beat every Pokemon league with him and only him no other Pokemon salamence is my number #1 Pokemon ever
So lets see... weaknesses ha... a lot of them... well lets start the count... Water, Rock, Electric. Now the attacks he can learn...
Thunder Punch, Solarbeam = Bye bye water types
Iron tail, Metal Claw, Steel wing, Brick Break= So long rocks...
Earthquake, Bulldoze, Dig= you know where I'm going...
So even though he has a lot of weakness he also possesses powers to deal with it better than any Pokemon... and I think that is just more than enough to make him one of the strongest Pokemon...
Dude, a lot of pokemon have coverage moves that protect them from their weaknesses. Just because it has coverage, doesn't make it strong. Heck, torterra only needs stone edge to cover almost all of it's weaknesses, yet it is still weak. Also, Charizard needs two turns to use solar beam, so a water type would have beaten it already or switched out into a sap sipper to eat up solar beam. - Ricky555
It is the best fire Pokemon with good stats it should be number 1 or No.2. Charizard is awesome and it also can learn Blast burn which is best move of fire Pokemon. Charizard is my best Pokemon ever since I started playing Pokemon when I was in grade 3. Charizard is best!
Let me point out everything wrong with this comment, it should not be 1. Or No.2. Because Charizard sucks. Once stealth rocks are up it's basically dead. Every fire starter can learn blast burn... Which is not the best fire type move. And just because it was your first pokemon Doesn't make it the best - Banette-marionette
I have a level 100 charizard right now. When it was a level 16 charmander I beat Brock with just one move, Which is metal claw. AND I beat Misty with a level 22 charmeleon and a level 19 pidgeotto. I also beat the elite 4 with Charizard, Pidgeot, Dragonite. I can't remember the others though. Charizard may not be the best, but he is awesome.
Charizard is extremely overrated and shouldn't be above Kyurem, Lugia and Darkrai. Charizard isn't even a proper dragon. Say what you want, but it won't change my opinion. - anythingispossible
I'm glad Charizard on this list. Though I would love it if Sceptile or Blaziken was on here too, because they're my fave starters of all. And if you have both of them on your team you can literally destroy everything. Sceptile + Blaziken + Charizard = E4 destruction.
This guy can defeat legends like ash's charizard when his charizard beats articuno and entei, this is really the best, he deserves to be I the top 10 too, not a legend, not a good choice of type and not rare but it has a good stats and moves to learn, also its mega x form increase a lot if stats so charizard is ROCKS!
Charizard is super strong because, he has great attacks and his defense is supreme! Considering that he is an evolved starter, that's awesome! And, he can fly and use flamethrower, overheat, blast burn and ANY OTHER FIRE, OR FLYING TYPE MOVE! A if you put in at least A LITTLE effort, he'll win almost ANY battle you face!
Yah! That 78 defense stat rocks! And overheat with the special attack stat drop, and blast burn with that recharge... Which every fire starter can learn. And what about rock types. Or stealth rocks... Which almost everybody uses. - Banette-marionette
Charizard is the strongest Pokemon. It should be number 1.
This Pokemon is terrible! It has a four times weakness to stealth rock, makes it lose half of the health when switching into it. It's stat boosting moves boost it's attack, but it is a special attacker. Blaze and solar power are ok, but not op. It's a special attacker meaning most of its flying attack will not be powerful, the best special flying type move it has is air slash. It can have a lot of coverage like earthquake dragon claw, but again, they r physical based not special... Got completely outclassed by typhlosion, speed boost blaziken and delphox. People like it just because it's design is the best. I have to say its mega forms are awesome but normal charizard sucks a lot!
It's a monster dragon! IT EVEN DEFEATED ARTICUNO! ARTICUNO is a LEGENDARY! It defeated a LEGENDARY! It's SO strong. I even chose my star Pokemon charmander just because it will evolve into CHARIZARD. Though its not the strongest Pokemon I voted this one because it is capable of beating legendaries. however it can't beat so strong Pokemon like dragonite and arceus. I actually thought of voting Mewtwo but it's my favourite
Most fire types can beat articuno, so it's not that much of a feat. Charizard can only beat a handful of pokemon. - Ricky555
My Charizard single handed the Elite 4 and Champion (at level 100) WITHOUT using items. No one else on my party. Just my pal Apocalypse (his nickname). No items. Just him.
Moves: Dragon Pulse, Blast burn, Overheat, and Fly.
Yep. He's badass
Elite four are controlled by AI. Try using that same charizard in competitive play, see how well it does. - Ricky555
