Template:PokémonPrevNext/Head Template:PokémonPrevNext/GO Template:PokémonPrevNext/Pokémon Template:PokémonPrevNext/Disambig |} Template:Pokémon Infobox Chikorita (Japanese: チコリータ Chicorita) is a Template:Type Template:OBP introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Template:P starting at level 16, which evolves into Template:P starting at level 32.

Along with Template:P and Template:P, Chikorita is one of the three starter Pokémon of Johto available at the beginning of Template:Game, Template:V2, Template:Game.

Biology

Chikorita is a small, pale green Pokémon with a darker necklace of buds. It has a large head in proportion to the rest of its body with large red eyes that appear to have no pupils. It has four short legs with a single nailed toe on each and a small tail. Its most distinguishing feature is the large leaf on the top of its head, which is usually longer than the rest of its body. Aside from the soothing aroma that wafts from its leaf, Chikorita uses its leaf to determine the temperature and humidity of the surrounding air.

Chikorita can be found in Template:DL throughout the Johto region. However, due to its status as a starter Pokémon, a wild Chikorita is hard to come by and it is generally found under the ownership of Trainers. Chikorita tends to be docile in nature due to its domestication from birth.

Trivia

File:GS flyer back.jpg
  • The Chikorita family is the only evolution family of a starter Pokémon to not have their names changed for the English release.
  • In the anime, Chikorita has had the most Template:Pkmns of the Johto starter Pokémon. It has been trained by Template:Ash, Template:An, Vincent, Template:OBP, and Template:An. However, Ash is the only one who is confirmed to not have received Chikorita as a starter Pokémon.
  • Chikorita is the only starter Pokémon that cannot be used in the Pokémon Jump minigame.
  • In both early artwork and the in-game sprites of Template:Game, Chikorita's body is yellow. This was later changed to light green in later artwork and the Template:Game sprites.
  • A Template:DL of Chikorita called Happa resembles a Chikorita without legs.

Origin

Chikorita has similarities to Template:Wps. Its shape and appearance also alludes to that of a Template:Wp, or a Belgian Template:Wp, a type of chicory.

Name origin

Chikorita is a combination of Template:Wp (a flowering plant) and ita (the feminine form of the Spanish suffix for something small or young).
