All About Chikorita

By Anonymous

Are you a fan of Chikorita? Chikorita is a pretty cute little Pokemon. You can get a Chikorita in the Johto region. Most commonly if you get it as your starter Pokemon. You can get your starter in the Johto region from Professor Elm, who studies Pokemon breeding patterns I believe. His lab where you choose your starter is in New Bark Town. Chikorita is a nice grass type Pokemon. A Chikorita can learn a lot of grass type attacks also, so there will be extra power for you there! However choosing Chikorita can put you at the down side of the first gym battle, the first two actually. The first gym battle is against Falkner. Falkner is a flying type trainer, well gym leader. You can get a Zephyr Badge from him if you succeed.

The flying type attacks are very powerful against Chikorita. Chikorita is a grass type and therefore weak against flying type attacks.

This is because Cyndaquil, the fire type starter Pokemon you can get from Professor Elm, is weak against ground type attacks.

Chikorita can also use their leaves to detect humidity in the air and check the temperature. It is the Johto region’s grass-type starter.

Chikorita is the tallest of all the unevolved starters. Originally in Pokemon Gold and Silver, Chikorita’s body was yellow though it was changed in to green in Crystal to match its official artwork. In the anime, Chikorita has had the most trainers out of all the Johto starters. Chikorita’s body could resemble a sort of pod and it’s suspected that its design was loosely based off from a sauropod. Chikorita is the only starter to not have its Japanese name changed for the English release of its generation. Despite there being a one in seven chance of getting a female Chikorita, Ash in the Pokemon anime had one, which eventually evolved. Chikorita’s name derives from ‘chicory’, which is a flowering plant, and ‘ita’ is a feminine Spanish suffix that stands for something young or small.
