Everyone wants a Charizard in Pokémon GO, but up until now it seems like it’s extremely rare for a trainer to have one. Not only is the Pokémon hard to find in the wild, it is also hard to level up.
Charizard starts from the form Charmander which is a Pokémon that you can choose in the beginning. In order to evolve it you need to find some sort of Charmander nest to get enough candies to evolve it.
Drakonous from Reddit documented his first Charmander and his story of evolving it to a Charizard through hardwork:
A Wild Charmander AppearsThe Only Encounter where you can’t use a camera and have to take a screenshot
Powered Up but Falling BehindI gave him what candy I could but wasn’t able to until I found a nest
Maxed OutPowered him up to Max when I was Level 22. Avg Weight: 18.7 lbs Weight: 31.54 lbs Avg Height: 2.00’Height: 2.49′ A little chubby for a Charmander
EvolvedNot quite the jump strength but he’s working on it. Avg Weight: 41 Weight: 33.75 lbs Avg Height: 3’07” Height: 4.56 ft A Lean Mean Fighting Machine.
Was a Long Time ComingAt Level 23 I finally reached my goal of 100 Charmander Candies and managed evolve him into his final evolution. He may not have the best moveset but he will always be my Starter. Avg Weight: 199.5 lbs Weight: 199.51 lbs Avg Height: 5.07 ft Height: 7.02 ft He’s become one tall Charizard that’s for sure.
He’s Earned this RightOthers may come that’ll be inherently stronger but he’s earned his place as my current strongest.
