Can you breed Charizard in Pokémon Violet? That is the question trainers have been asking ever since the classic Pokémon showed up in a Terra Raid Battle event and you can’t have too many Charizards, which is why people are looking to breed them.

This article will take you through if it is indeed possible to duplicate your Charizard through the breeding mechanic in the game whether you are playing alone or with friends in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet co-op. With a Charizard on your team you can then begin forming a team of the best Pokémon in Pokémon Violet.

Can you breed Charizard in Pokémon Violet?

In Pokémon Violet, you can breed Charizard if you use a Pokémon in the same egg group as Charizard with a Charizard itself or breed a Charizard with a Ditto. Doing this will give you a chance of breeding a Charmander that you can then evolve into a Charmeleon and then a Charizard. The only way to begin this process is to have obtained a Charizard from the Terra Raid Battle.

You aren’t able to actually trade your Charizard or any Pokémon in its evolutionary line with other players as none of them are native to Pokemon Violet. However, you can build up your own army as there is no limit to how many times you can breed a Charizard.

Ideally, you want to be using Ditto for this method as it guarantees you will always get a Charmander upon breeding. Whereas if you use another Pokémon in the egg group you may get something else. If you do want to use this method then Serebii’s list of Pokémon in the Charizard’s egg group is a great resource.

And that covers it. Now you know how to breed Charizard in Pokémon Violet, you can begin getting set up and ready to take them into challenging competitive matches. For an overview of how Pokémon Scarlet and Violet competitive and ranked work our guide has everything you need to know.
