Chikorita, the Leaf Pokémon. Chikorita emits pleasant aromas from the leaves on their heads and they love to sunbathe.

Chikorita is the first Pokemon of Gen II, being the grass starter. Its English name and Japanese name are the same, it’s the only starter evolution family not to have its names changed from the Japanese to English. Chikorita looks kinda like a blob with eyes and a leaf on its head. I guess it looks a bit weird to me due to the lack of neck and distinct head.

In the anime, Ash had a Chikorita. It was shown to be female (rare for a starter), and it’s really attached to him (and very affectionate) after he saved it from Team Rocket. That Chikorita evolved into a Bayleef, one of the few starter Pokemon that Ash has that evolved.

Stat-wise, it has higher defensive stats than offensive ones. And it learns many support status moves by level-up. It’s better used as a support Pokemon than an offensive one.
