Charizard has finally made the trip to the Paldea region and landed in Pokémon Scarlet. As one of the most famous faces in the series and one of the most popular, you might be wondering can your breed Charizard in Pokémon Scarlet?

Well, this article will take you through if that is possible as you are exploring the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet map and either playing alone or with friends. Whether you are playing in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet co-op or not, having Charizard on your team will no doubt add some fire power to your lineup of the best Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet.

Can you breed Charizard in Pokémon Scarlet?

Yes, you can breed Charizard in Pokémon Scarlet if you use a Ditto and a Charizard or breed a Pokémon in the same egg group as Charizard with a Charizard itself. This will eventually let you breed a Charmander, which can then evolve into Charizard. The only way you can actually begin the process of breeding your Charizard is by getting one initially as a reward from the Terra Raid Battle event.

There is no limit to how many times you can breed a Charizard so you can get as many Charizards as you want by repeating this method. As the Pokémon is not natively available in Scarlet, you aren’t able to trade it with other players. This goes for every Pokémon in Charizard’s evolutionary line.

Ditto is the ideal method to do this as you are guaranteed to get a Charmander from the breeding process. You can find a full list of the Pokémon in Charizard’s egg group here from Serebii if you do want to use that method, however.
