Magikarp evolves into Gyrados. Is that not insane enough? Should there be some middle stage to make it less insane?

## Some Charizard related calculations

About 9,872 cubic meters.

To obtain this number:

- Convert 10,000 tons into tonnes (Yielding: 9,072 metric tons)
- Find out how much a cubic meter of ice weighs (about 919 kg).
- Convert metric tons to kilograms (9,072,000 kg) and divide by the constant (919 kg)

Energy required to melt 9,872 cubic meters of ice:

- Find amount of energy required to melt 1 gram of ice (80 calories <335 Joules> at 0 degrees C)
- Convert 9,872 cubic meters into kilograms (9,072,368 kg), then grams (9,072,368,000,000 g)
- Multiply grams by energy needed (80 cal/335 J)

I don't know how the hell a Charizard can basically produce that much energy so quickly, unless it basically exhales the energy contained in the Tsar Bomba concentrated in a beam.

Wow, I really have too much time on my hands .

Wow, nice calculations, but how big is 9,872 cubic meters? In comparison to other things? Maybe then will I truly be awed at Charizard's power...

1 cubic meter is equal to 1,000 liters of water so 9,872 cubic meters equals 9,872,000 liters of water.

Put another way: The*Kangan class*logistics tankers of the Iranian navy have a cargo room of 9,000 cubic meters and fully loaded it weighs 12,000 tons and is 485 ft long. (From: http://www.hazegray.org/worldnav/mideast/iran.htm)

Put yet another way, the Yangtze River in China has a "low flow" of 9,000 cubic meters per second.
