What is Charmander in Pokémon GO?

 Pokémon Go Charmande

Charmander is one of the most popular Pokémon in the entire world mainly because its final evolution is Charmeleon.

Charmeleon then evolves into Charizard, a fire-breathing dragon. Evolving Charmander into Charmeleon will cost 25 candies and further evolution of Charmeleon to Charizard will cost 100 candies.

Charmander is one of the 3 starter Pokémon found in the Kanto region, where players can find the first generation of Pokémon. It is a pretty powerful Pokémon to add to your collection and a great choice to use in battles, which is why it is so sought after.

The following is a complete list of Charmander Stats:

  • Charmander is a fire-type Pokémon with a max CP of 1180, 116-attack, 93-defense, and 118 stamina.
  • It was originally found in the Kanto Region
  • Although quite powerful, it is vulnerable to Ground, Rock, and Water Types
  • It is strengthened by sunny weather
  • Its best set of moves is Scratch and Flamethrower (8.51 DPS)

How to Get Charmander in Pokémon GO

This charismatic Fire-type Pokemon can be found in various ways, though there's no guaranteed method to summon it. Here's how you might come across Charmander in Pokémon GO:

1. In the Wild

Charmander roams the overland map during the Anniversary events. Keep your eyes peeled and explore different locations to increase your chances of encountering this fiery lizard.

2. Completing Research Tasks

Charmander may appear as a reward for completing specific Research Tasks. Keep an eye on your missions, as you might just stumble upon this little flame-wielding creature.

3. Lures at PokeStops

Luring up a PokeStop can also attract Charmander to your vicinity. While it's not guaranteed, it's worth trying your luck by setting a Lure and waiting to see if Charmander shows up.

How to Capture Charmander in the Wild

For Pokémon GO trainers with their sights set on capturing a shiny Charmander in the wild between events, the journey may be more arduous than they initially thought. It will likely require a substantial investment of time, items, and a dash of good fortune.

However, the glimmer of hope lies in the fact that Charmander's shiny appearance rate during standard gameplay is not zero. Persistent trainers can still achieve this elusive feat with determination, luck, or a bit of both.

While there are no guaranteed methods for shiny Charmander encounters, some strategies can potentially ease the process. In the end, it comes down to patience and a bit of strategy or the anticipation of a future event that may boost shiny rates.

Hunt in Fire-Prone Areas

To enhance the chances of encountering Fire-type Pokemon, including Charmander, consider venturing into areas where Fire-types commonly spawn. These places include cities, residential neighborhoods, and dry or arid regions. Beaches are also known for their potential to yield Fire-type spawns.

Explore Nests Tracking Maps

If you're having trouble finding Charmander spawns, especially in specific locations, third-party tracking sites could guide you to nests. Nests offer higher probability of encountering Charmander quickly, increasing your chances of finding a shiny one.

The following are some of the most popular Pokémon Go location maps out there:

  • The Silph Road
  • PoGo Map
  • Poke Map
  • Poke Vision
  • Poke Hunter (provides data on North American Locations only)
  • NYC Poke Map (for New York City only)
  • SG Poke Map (For information about locations in Singapore only)

Charmander with Coordinates

You can also find Charmander if you have the actual coordinates of a spawning location. Unlike the location maps that we have seen above, coordinates tend to be more accurate and therefore more useful, particularly if you will be using spoofing tools to catch Charmander.

The following are coordinates that point to where you might be able to find Charmander:

  • 51.43696664, -0.28917174- London
  • 48.145586,11.585439- Munich
  • 35.702235, 138.664464- Yamanashi
  • 40.44532634, -80.01049876- Pittsburgh
  • 48.729588,44.544997- Volgograd
  • 51.48833122, -0.34881592- London

  • 39.793751, -89.681951- Springfield
  • -36.898487,174.78951- Melbourne

Use Incense and Lure Modules

Carrying as many incense and lure modules as possible can increase your odds of spotting Charmander. While it doesn't guarantee more Charmander spawns, it can significantly boost your chances when used in areas where Charmander may appear.

Keep Moving

Pokemon GO refreshes available spawns as you move, so avoid staying in one place for too long. By continually moving, you ensure a steady flow of new spawns and avoid getting stuck with low encounter rates in a stagnant location.

In the quest for a shiny Charmander, determination, preparation, and a bit of serendipity play crucial roles. With the right strategy, you can enhance your chances of spotting this special variant of the beloved Fire-type Pokemon. So, get out there, explore, and let the adventure begin!
