Charmander (Starter Squad)
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Charmander is the main protagonist of Starter Squad.
- In early episodes (Episodes 1 - 7), he is shown to be very rude towards everyone. Especially Squirtle who tries to help Charmander calm down, although they tend to not get along and argue at each other.
- He is shown to be cheating in a Pokémon battle by fighting out of turn. In Episode 2 he did this and killed a Caterpie (Who would later be revealed to be Pablo in Episode 4) by stabbing it with a stick, and later in Episode 6 where he did the same thing. (But with Flareon surviving instead)
- As mentioned in BQ#2, he injures and murders various characters in the series.
- Pablo (Caterpie): Stabs him with a stick, killing him. This results in the Caterpie Leader trying to kill him. (Episode 2)
- Red (Trainer): Burns him to death with Ember (Episode 3)
- A Butterfree: Thrown a stick at it, killing it in the process (Episode 4)
- Hitmonchan: Stumps on the Pokeball while it is in-use, causing the game to glitch, corrupting Hitmonchan in the process (Episode 5)
- Weepinbell: Stabs him in the eye, killing him. (Episode 6)
- Various Trainers: Burned to death in the PokeCenter raid done by Charmander. (Episode 6)
- Flareon: Stabs him in the neck with a stick, injuring him in the process. (Episode 7)
- Shellder: Stumps on it, crushing and killing it in the process (Episode 9)
- Beedrill: Burns him to death using Flamethrower (Episode 9)
- Various Caterpie: Stabs them with Beedrill's Arm and burning them to death using Flamethrower, although he did this to try and save Squirtle (Episode 9)
- Hypocrisy: Charmander hates the trainers when they use Pokémon for battles and telling them what to do, yet he does the exact same thing in Episode 3 where he claims Bulbasaur and Squirtle as his Pokemon.
- He was the cause of MissingNo being summoned in Episode 5, causing MewTwo to get mad at him in Episode 8.
- He has various moments of doing dumb things.
- Giving Bulbasaur the antidote, when Bulbasaur is completely fine. (Episode 6)
- Despite being the protagonist of the series, many of his actions make him more of a antagonist rather than a protagonist.
- He redeems himself in Episode 8, where he realizes that Squirtle helped him out in previous episodes. Resulting in him trying to save Squirtle in Episode 9.
- He gets a taste of his own medicine, in Episode 5 where he gets knocked out by Hitmonchan, in Episode 8 where he gets scolded by MewTwo for summoning MissingNo, and in Episode 9 where he gets knocked out by Squirtle who is splashing him with his Water Gun move, and then killed by Leader Caterpie.
- Pierce Shipp did a great job voicing him.
- Charmander has a point in Episode 9 that using Pokémon just for battling is wrong and if they really cared about them they would fight by their side, despite the hypocrisy of him.
