Takara Tomy will be releasing 6 more Chokkori San mini plushies on June, 21, 2018, in Japan. For those of you who are not familiar with Chokkori San plushies, they are small size plushies that can sit on a table, in a cup, on your desk, etc. The word “Chokkori” means “a little” or “slightly” in English, so the name means they are in a slightly sitting position. They are very cute. Last time Takara Tomy released Brock, Misty, Jessie, James, Meowth, Vulpix, Pikachu, Psyduck and Ash Ketchum.
This time around it will be Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Snorlax, Chansey and Nurse Joy! These will only be available in Japan, but you can of course get them on Pokevault after June 21, 2018. They will be in limited supply, so hurry if you want one of these little cuties.

Most trainers, or probably the older community of trainers started their first Pokemon journey in the Kanto region. Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur are the starters you can get there. The Pokemon professor Samuel Oak is the one who gives trainers their starters, he studies Pokemon and human relations. The main goal when a trainer starts their journey is to challenge the Pokemon League. In order to challenge the Pokemon League you must gather the eight gym badges of the region.
The eight gym leaders of the Kanto region are Brock, Misty, Lt. Surge, Erika, Koga, Sabrina, Blaine, and Giovanni. However in the more modern versions of Kanto, Koga is in the Elite Four so his kid Janine takes over the gym. And the last gym leader of the Kanto region, Giovanni, quit for unknown reasons so Blue took over. The first thing you should do is to make sure you have enough Pokeballs and Potions, usually about three Potions and five Pokeballs work out good enough for the beginning of your journey.
You will go through Viridian Forest and find yourself in Pewter City. Pewter City is the place where the first gym leader is at. The gym leader is Brock, he trains rock type Pokemon. So it might be a little hard to beat him if you chose a Charmander as your starter Pokemon. This is because a rock type Pokemon has a type advantage over fire type Pokemon. Brock will use two Pokemon against you. These two pokemon are both duo types. This means instead of having one type they have two. In this case they a ground type and rock type Pokemon. The first he will use is a Geodude. The Geodude can be defeated quickly if you chose a Squirtle that probably learned Water Gun by now. Or a Bulbasaur that probably learned Absorb.
If you have enough potions and a few other Pokemon aside from your starter with you at this time it should make it a bit easier if you choose a Charmander. Don’t get me wrong, Charmander is a great and powerful starter, it’s just the first few gyms have a type advantage. If you win Brock will give you the Boulder Badge, the very first badge in the Kanto region. Only seven more to go! Next up is the water type gym in Cerulean City!

Do you remember the original 150 Pokemon? Do you by any chance remember the starters? The Kanto region? Or even Professor Oak? To incorporate this all, or most of it. In the Kanto region, with the original 150 Pokemon, you can get your start from Professor Oak. The grass type Bulbasaur, or the water type Squirtle? The main one that will be talked about in this article is the fire type Pokemon you can receive from Professor Oak, Charmander. Now Charmander has a long history for many things. In the anime, way in the beginning, it says that Charmander will die if the flame on his tail were to go out. This is fairly interesting, is this for all fire type Pokemon with flame on a body part? I wonder, probably not, it was only mentioned with Charmander.
Charmander you should already know as a fire type Pokemon. The first two gyms in the Kanto region or hard if that is the place you choose for your journey. This is only if you choose Charmander though. Because the first two gyms in the Kanto region are a Rock type gym, the leader is Brock, it is hard for Charmander to beat him unless you bring some potions. The second gym is a bit easier though it is a water type gym, the leader is Misty. It will be sort of hard for a Charmander, The only reason for it to be sort of is that you might have a few other Pokemon at the time to help you out. Charmander is a fire type Pokemon, and is therefore weak to the Rock and Water type Pokemon. He can get more powerful by evolving into Charmeleon.

Hello Pokemon Fans! Today I would like to discuss generation one vs. generation five. Now in my opinion I think all Pokemon games are amazing I will admit that, but all the Pokemon…not so much. First let me say this in generation one the designs of the Pokemon were outstanding! Along with the naming and battle moves. For example I will use the three starter Pokemon: Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander. Now I loved fire Pokemon (along with dragons) so I chose Charmander. Now Charmander to me was a pretty sweet Pokemon due to the fact that he was almost unstoppable unless against a water type. To me his best move as we progressed was flamethrower. Then he evolved into Charmeleon! Now I was not a fan of Charmeleon but I must say he was stronger and learned even better moves.
Anyways moving on, I thought that the detail was a little bit lazy since all they did was buff Charmander up, add a horn to his head, and rename him Charmeleon. In the end though I was happy for the last evolution was Charizard. Now I was very impressed for I thought he would look like a dinosaur (T-Rex), but no I was wrong he was transformed into an orange dragon with wings. Not only was he just a fire type now but a flying type now too! I must say he was very powerful to so I applaud Game Freak and Nintendo.

It’s orange, lizard-like, and obnoxiously cute! Charmander, the Lizard Pokemon, is the first fire-type in the National Pokedex and is also the Kanto region’s fire-type starter. Charmander is the tallest of all fire-type starters and a fan favorite for its evolutionary line. It also has the longest name of any unevolved Pokemon.
According to its pokedex entries, Charmander’s flame at the tip of its tail makes a slight crackling sound that can only be heard in quiet places. That flame is said to burn in reaction to its emotions; if it’s content its flame wavers, while that flame will burn brightly if it becomes enraged. Its pokédex entries also state that if the Charmander is healthy, it will burn vigorously even when becoming wet. It will die if the flame ever burns out, as the flame is a measure of its life force. Charmander is based off from a salamander, though it also has features of lizards too. Its name most likely comes from the words ‘char’, which means “to burn”, and ‘salamander’, an amphibian found in Japan (which is where the games are made). Charmander may also be inspired by fire-spirits who are said to be able to inhabit the hottest temperatures. Those fire-spirits are often depicted to be lizard-like.

Does anyone remember their first favorite Pokemon, and is it still your favorite? I remember that when I first watched it, Pikachu was my favorite. I still like Pikachu, but he’s nowhere near my top 10 favorites anymore. Pikachu was first knocked out of the number one spot by Charmander, then Eevee, then Charizard. As it stands now, Charizard (tied with Charmander), Jolteon, and Ninetales are my top three favorites.
I remember feeling so bad for the Charmander that was abandoned by his trainer, yet he still waited in the rain. I guess it’s the loyalty and cuteness of Charmander that made him my favorite, beating Pikachu for the top spot. Charmander is still to this day my number one favorite starter. When Charmander evolved into Charmeleon I wasn’t too happy because of how he wouldn’t listen to Ash.

Charmander is a fire type starter Pokemon, known as the lizard Pokemon, and known as Hitokage in Japan. It knows strong moves like dragon rage, and flamethrower. It can evolve into Charmeleon at level 16, and then into Charizard at level 36. In the anime, Ash caught a Charmander when it was abandoned by its trainer. When it evolved into Charmeleon, it started to disobey his orders, and continued to do so when it evolved into Charizard. It wasn’t till during his adventures in the Orange Islands when Ash gained Charizards trust, and became one of Ash’s loyal Pokemon he can trust.
