Pokémon heights are a crucial part of our interaction with them, as their size often defines their level, skill, and ability. Imagine a world where Bulbasaur was bigger than Venusaur — there would be riots in Cerulean City.
This awesome chart breaks down how Pokémon heights measure up against a human, so you'd know how difficult it would be to hide a Pokémon in your cupboard or play with it inside your house — if Pokémon Go was as real they make it out to be here:

Yes that's Red the trainer and no, his actual height is not 5 feet 10 inches. That would be very, very tall for an 11-year-old. This height chart of Pokémon protagonists estimates he'd actually be at the humbler height of 4'7". The dude on the chart is simply that of an average American adult male — 5'10.1".
Here's a breakdown of the heights and names:
- Golbat: 5'3.0" [two inches smaller than an average American woman]
- Crobat: 5'10.9"
- Rosealia: 0'11.8"
- Blitzle: 2'7.5"
- Charizard: 5'6.9"
- Lucario: 3'11.2"
- Dratini: 5'10.9"
- Galvantula: 2'7.5"
- Glailie: 4'11.1" [five inches taller than an average 10-year-old American boy]
- Kingdra: 5'10.9"
- Ponyta: 3'3.4"
- Buneary: 3'11.2"
- Meowth: 1'3.7"
- Carnivine: 4'7.1" [two inches smaller than an average 10-year-old American girl]
There can be many size discrepancies between Pokémon. For example, many of Ash's creatures appear to be much smaller in the anime than others of the same species. Just like real animals, the height of Pokémon can change depending on the individual being.
