Pokemon GO's fifth anniversary collection challenge rewards players for catching Chikorita, along with other certain Pokemon.

Chikorita's go-to moves include Vine Whip, Grass Knot, Energy Ball, Tackle, and Body Slam.

Since Chikorita is a Grass-type Pokemon, players can use Fire-, Flying-, Poison-, Bug-, or Ice-type Pokemon as counter opponents.

Some of the best counter Pokemon to use against Chikorita include Chandelure, Volcarona, Darmanitan, and Charizard.

However, when using Chikorita, you shouldn't fight against Water-, Grass-, Electric, or Ground-type Pokemon.

Chikorita can evolve into Bayleef, which costs 25 Candy. Players can then use 100 Candy when evolving Bayleef into Meganium.
