Ash's Charizard is undoubtedly one of Ash's most powerful Pokemon ever. Like Sceptile and Lucario, Charizard gained the ability to Mega-Evolve, making it one of the most powerful and battle-tested Pokemon in the world ever.

Personality and characteristics

Charizard has been willing to assist Ash in any battle, ranging from Casey's Chikorita to Falkner's Pidgeot with no complaint. However, Charizard maintained the rebellious Flamethrower attacks as a sign of affection for its master and while Charizard was loyal, its love of power and reputation remained. During its training on the Charicific Valley, Charizard has significantly matured, despite retaining its fiery nature and fierce battling spirit. It gets along reasonably well with all of Ash's Pokemon, though it initially was jealous of Greninja due to its Bond Phenomenon power. But eventually Charizard and Greninja grew to work together and respect each other. Charizard is rather friendly with Serena, approving of Ash's decision to be with her fully and also has a close sibling relationship with Serena's Braixen. Charizard enjoys showing off in front of his girlfriend, Charla, though he did tone it down after Ash and Serena convinced him that Charla loved him just the way he was. Charizard considers Alain's Charizard to be a rival, though they do get along well. After Mega-Evolving, Charizard became significantly more powerful and robust, and has been arguably Ash's main contributor to his League victories, other than Ash-Greninja.
