About: Chikorita

Chikorita sprite Chikorita (チユリータ), known as the "Leaf" Pokémon, is a small green reptilian Pokémon. It is primarily a pale leaf green color with large red eyes. Its most distinguishing feature is the large leaf on the top of its head, which is usually longer than the rest of its body. It has a "necklace" of small green buds around its neck. Chikorita can spawn vines from its neck and create leaves from the big leaf on its head. Like many Grass-type Pokémon, its foliage emits a sweet odor that has calming properties. This leaf also has the ability to check the temperature and humidity of the surrounding air. Chikorita, like many grass Pokémon, are very docile. It prefers to avoid fights by waving around the large leaf on its head. It spends most of its time sunbathing, and uses the leaf on its head to find warm spots. Chikorita are also sensitive emotionally, and become very upset when misunderstood. Chikorita are rare Pokémon mostly found in large open plains or small forests with other Chikorita, Bayleef, and Meganium.

Chikorita first appeared in the video games Pokémon Gold and Silver and subsequent sequels, later appearing in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated and printed adaptations of the Pokémon franchise.
