why is charizard so popular ?

#1neo1markPosted 4/19/2014 11:58:03 PM(edited)
Ok blaziken , greninja , lucario and even pikachu arent as popular as charizard . (Pikachu may be recognizable to non poke fans but to most poke fans zard is the most popular )

Did gamefreak intend to make it that popular ?

Now any reason for that ?

It was the coolest card in the card game. If you had charizard you were awesome.

Dragons have always been popular. Pokemon isn't an exception.

-Is a starter, they're typically popular as they're pushed and commonly used among players.
-Is a (not) dragon, which of course does help.
-The anime, Ash's Charizard is a very notable character from it.
-One of the mascots for Gen 1, which is the most remembered of the Pokémon games.
-Heavy pushing by GF, especially as of late.

There may be more reasons as well, but those seem to be the most common given for it.
