Chikorita evolves into Bayleef starting at level 16, which evolves into Meganium starting at level 32.

It is one of the three Johto Starters, along with Totodile and Cyndaquil.


Chikorita has a mostly pale-green body, with a darker green leaf, and necklace of buds. It head is rather large compared to the rest of its body, with big, red eyes without pupils. It has four short legs each with a single toe, and a tiny tail.

In Chikorita's Beta artwork, it had orange pupils instead of red ones, and the green buds around its neck are orange. It's body shape was also vastly different, as it appeared to only have two front legs, and an upper lip sticking out. The leaf on its head was also much smaller than in is in the final draft.
