EDIT
My Charizards do not normally rear fully upright like this. There head is usually held lower and as such are measured at the shoulder, making them 5'7". The trainer is around 6' or so.

Though Bulbasaur has always been my favorite Pokemon, Charizard has always been my favorite fully evolved starter. I even had a Charizard Pokemon card back when that was a big deal. I wanted to make sure he looked reptilian not saurischian, so I pulled design elements exclusively from reptiles. You guys should definitely check out a Kaprosuchus, it certainly wouldn't be a boar. I also made sure to add little wing nubs on the pre-evs so that its not as jarring a transition. As Charizards get older, more or their tail envelops in flame. When a Charizard reaches an old enough age it will completely ignite and burn itself to ash. There are responsible for the occasional brush fire.

 Oh, how could you go and say that Charizard will eventually ignite itself and burn itself to ash? That's horrible! Especially foe all the beginners who chose Charmander!

It says that they'll burn itself to ash when they reach an old enough age...It's just like how we normally die, but instead of turning into a dead corpse, they "burn their own corpse" so nothing will be left behind. They won't suddenly ignite and die xD

Does that Charmander plan to eat that whole Catapie, its almost as big as it is. Again awesome. I like the little frills between Charizard's legs and tail, a flight aid I presume, nice touch.
