“I caught you, Charizard!”
Pokémon Trainer, Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Charizard is a Fire/Flying-type Pokémon. It appears in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee as a Poké Ball Pokémon, and in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a playable character. In the Pokémon series, it evolves from Charmeleon, which evolves from Charmander. Charizard Mega Evolves into Mega Charizard X or Mega Charizard Y.

History[edit]

Super Smash Bros.[edit]

It can come out of a Poké Ball, spitting fire to either side of it, burning the characters.

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

It can come out of a Poké Ball and retains its attack method from Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Charizard appears as one of the Pokémon used by the Pokémon Trainer, who remains in the background of a stage while Charizard fights. The Pokémon Trainer uses Squirtle and Ivysaur in addition to Charizard, and when Pokémon Change is used while Ivysaur is out, Charizard replaces Ivysaur in battle. If the move is used again, Squirtle replaces Charizard. Charizard, the heaviest of the three Pokémon, is the only one able to glide.

In the Subspace Emissary, Charizard is the last Pokémon that the Pokémon Trainer collects. Lucas and the trainer first see Charizard flying into a mountain, and Pokémon Trainer points out to Lucas that it is the third Pokémon he must collect. After traveling through the mountain, Pokémon Trainer and Lucas find Charizard, who attacks them. The two battle the large Pokémon, which is turned into a trophy upon its defeat. The trainer collects the trophy, and Charizard joins the party.


Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

“Charizard Fires it Up!”
Introduction, Super Smash Bros. Direct

Charizard returns as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. However, in this game, it will return as a standalone fighter rather than being one of the Pokémon Trainer's Pokémon due to the elimination of in-battle transformation moves. One of Charizard's Mega Evolutions, Mega Charizard X, has also been confirmed to be appearing as its Final Smash move.[1]

Special Moves[edit]

Flamethrower[edit]

Main article: SmashWiki:Flamethrower

Flamethrower has been Charizard's attack since Super Smash Bros. In the first two games, Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee, Charizard uses Flamethrower when released from the Poké Ball, damaging any characters who touched it (except for the one who released Charizard). In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it is Charizard's standard Special Move. When used, Charizard will shoot fire in the direction it is facing, similar to Bowser's Fire Breath, though Charizard's attack has greater range and deals more damage. Kirby can use this move after copying Charizard's powers. He also uses Flamethrower during his down throw move.

Rock Smash[edit]

Rock Smash is Charizard's Side special move. When used, Charizard will pull out a large rock and smash it with its head, devastating any players hit by the "exploding" rock. The attack is based on the actual Pokémon attack called Rock Smash. It is a close range attack. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, it was changed to be his down special move.

Fly[edit]

Main article: SmashWiki:Fly

Fly is the Up special move of Charizard. All that happens is that every time the attack code is pressed, Charizard flaps its wings once to fly upwards. It is also engulfed in fire to launch and burn foes above it. This is not often used, as Charizard's three jumps and gliding ability are usually able to help it recover from being knocked off of or away from the stage. Like the Super Dedede Jump, it has little horizontal distance. Charizard will be put into a helpless state after if he finishes the move in the air.

Pokémon Change[edit]

Switching out Charizard when using Pokémon Change will summon Squirtle.

Fire Blast[edit]

In the move Triple Finish, Charizard continually blasts the foe with Fire Blast. This attack is the finisher of the Final Smash; the other two rack up damage.

Trophy Information[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

It's hard to believe, but this massive flame Pokémon evolves from the tiny Charmander. Not only can it fly at heights of over 4,500 feet, but its flaming breath is hot enough to reduce almost anything to ashes in seconds. The flames at the end of a Charizard's tail are said to be a fairly accurate barometer of its power.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Name Image Game Description
Charizard BrawlTrophy039.png GB Pokémon Red/Blue A Flame Pokémon. Its fiery breath is hot enough to burn up rocks, and its wings let it fly up to 4,600 feet into the air. It's a proud Pokémon that will never use its flame breath on an opponent weaker than itself. The flame on its tail is a barometer of how much vitality it has remaining. Its signature move, Flamethrower, is a reliable technique.
