Trophy Info


Number 6, Charizard, the Flame Pokemon. This Pokemon evolves from a Charmeleon. It seeks challenging foes, has a battling spirit, and has a flame at the tip of its tail. This Pokemon shows that fighting spirit and flames into Super Smash Bros. Don't worry, Charizard's going to get the finest fighters that Super Smash Bros. has to offer for a good fight.


It mostly fights the same as the previous appearances. The Flamethrower puts out a flame that shrinks and weakens, the longer it is used. Although Charizard's Flare Blitz doesn't spin anymore, the damage and recoil damage remains in the move. Fly still sends Charizard flying high and damaging any foe getting in the Fly charge's way. Rock Smash retains the hard hitting armored attack strength, so small hits don't really make Charizard flinch when the attack is performed.

Mega Charizard X

Charizard taps into the Charizardite X's power to transform into Mega Charizard X for a short time. It can freely fly around while delivering a powerful spin charges in any direction or a scorching Fire Blast. Charizard is near unstoppable in this form, so its foes better watch out when Mega Charizard X shows up. Oh, if a "shiny" Charizard uses the Charizardite X Mega Stone, Mega Charizard X will be "shiny" as well.

Special Attrib.

  • Phoenix Wright's "evidence" against Charizard in Phoenix's Final Smash is Charizard's label of "Flame Pokemon" and its Fire/Dragon typing with a Charizardite X,  which is a call to Charizard looking like a dragon when its typing is actually a Fire/Flying when normal or Mega form Y.
  • Kirby regains Charizard's non-shiny head and Flamethrower as a neutral special when Kirby copies Charizard.
  • Charizard's victory theme is a brief remix of the victory theme against a Gym Leader in Pokemon Red, Blue, and Green.


  • Just like the palettes' appearance in Smash for Wii U/3DS, the red palette is a reference to Charmeleon and the blue one references Golbat. The new grey palette refrences Aerodactyl in the same fashion.
  • The director confirms that this instance of Charizard is indeed male. The director adds that Red's shirt and vest is a vague hint to that.
