Charizard - How To Get A Better Charmander

The most important thing here is to turn off autosave. This can be accessed from the options menu. This will allow you to manually save the game whenever you want.

2. Save Before You Pick Up The Pokeball!


Save outside of Leon's room before you pick up the Pokeball! This will allow you to reset the software if you get a weak Charmander.

3. Reset Until You Get An Ideal Charmander

2 Charmanders

Once you've captured your Charmander, check out its stats and decide if you want to keep it or reset until you get a better one. Try to get a Charmander with maximum Special Attack, Attack, and Speed if you can.

Judge Function Is Necessary
