Charmeleon enter adolescence very quickly, and begin growing their wings, that are simple little stubs when they're in their Charmander stage. A small crest grows on the back of the head that once fully grown, it divides into two separate parts. Their scaly skins also turn darker, and somewhat smoother. Some trainers have experienced a change in their mood as well. They become big risk takers, but they also become lazy, and are easily bored by the company of other pokemon. The flame on their tail becomes brighter, not bigger.
