Charizard is a character from the Pokémon series. Known as the "Flame" Pokémon, Charizard was first introduced in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue as the final form of the Fire-Type starter Charmander.

Charizard originally started as a Pokémon contained within a Poké Ball in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee, utilizing Flamethrower, but became a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as the Fire-Type Pokémon used by the Pokémon Trainer, the other two Pokémon being Ivysaur and Squirtle, eventually becoming its own character in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U.

[edit] Role in SSE

The Pokémon Trainer trails Charizard into a Mountain Cave along with Lucas, who started traveling with him after Ness was captured. Before they can even enter the cave, Wario attacks them and attempts to stop them both, only for the two to prevail over the wicked one.

Braving the lava and traps of the cave, they would eventually catch an Ivysaur, then encounter Charizard, defeating it in battle to catch it. At the end of the cave they battle Galleom after he had already been defeated by Ike, Marth and Meta Knight. After defeating them, Galleom grabs them and attempts to fly off with them whilst detonating a Subspace Bomb. Lucas breaks away with PK Thunder and was caught in freefall by Meta Knight.

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

Charizard has been revealed to be making his return for a second round as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U, this time however, it is by itself, and it has a new Final Smash, transforming it into the powerful Mega Evolution Mega Charizard X.
