Pokédex description

Flame Pokémon
Standard Pokédex description
Charizard flies around the sky in search of powerful opponents. It breathes fire of such great heat that it melts anything. However, it never turns its fiery breath on any opponent weaker than itself.
- Charizard's cry
Mega Charizard X Pokédex description
The overwhelming power that fills its entire body causes it to turn black and creates intense blue flames.
- Mega Charizard X's cry
Mega Charizard Y Pokédex description
Its bond with its Trainer is the source of its power. It boasts speed and maneuverability greater than that of a jet fighter.
- Mega Charizard Y's cry
