Charmander may not have the nuances of later dual-type starters, but you can't beat its cutesy appeal. Plus, it eventually evolves into one of the simplest, yet downright coolest Pokemon designs of all time. It's also said that if the flame burning on the end of its tail should go out, li'l Charmander would die. Keep that ember burning bright, ya hear?
