Charmeleon, The Flame Pokémon. When swinging it's tail, it raises the temperature. It gets easily excited by tough battles and when excited it blows blueish-white flames. It is very vicious and wont stop attacking until the enemy is defeated with it's sharp claws. It's hot-headed (pun intended) and only calms down when he has won a battle. If it is agitated in battle, it spouts intense flames which incinerate the sorroundings.

Strategy Using Charmeleon

Charmeleon is a diverse pokemon and has potential with being a physical and special sweeper. Today, this is the Special sweeper set, but its movepool is not as diverse as its stats. Obviously you could replace Bite with another attack but its most likely that this will be repeating a type already being used. Besides, Bite is basically a filler move and will probably not be used much. Anyway, HP Grass is used to combat the Water/Rock/Ground types that will provide Charmeleon problems

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Special Attack and Speed for Charmeleon with any remaining in HP and the Defenses
