12. Charizard

Series: Pokémon
First Appearance: Pokémon Red/Blue 

One of the most difficult decisions we’ve had to make in our gaming lives would be picking between Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander in Pokemon Red/Blue. The gamers that picked Charmander were very satisfied by level 36.

Charizard was able to slay opponents with ease, and fly you to the next city when you needed it most. He always got us out of a bind. Die hard Charizard fans with a point to prove got to show off Charizard’s fighting skills in Super Smash Bros. Brawl to silence the haters.
