PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

According to Serebii, Charizard is one of the Rare Spawns, but I was wondering whether it, like Dragonite, spawned in the sky, which is only accessible post elite four, or if it would appear alongside Pokemon like Squirtle.

Charmander can be found pre-E4 on several routes, so yes.

I mean charizard itself, without having to evolve it
Ah, I see. Charizard's page on this site says no, but LGPE are newly released and the site's missing a lot of locations.
According to a random Smogon post, no, but it might be excluding evolved Pokemon.  https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/wip-lets-go-in-game-tierlist.3644062/

Here are the locations of where you can find a Charizard in LGPE:

Route 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25

Please note that you can definitely find a Charmander on Route 3/4/24 (Gift after catching 50 total Pokemon), and in Rock Tunnel.

EDIT: You can find Charizard high in the sky like Dragonite, so you can only find your Charizard in the post-game OR on Route 17 "Pokémon Road".

MunchingOrange mentions at Timestamp 7:44 of his most recent video that this Route is the only one pre-post-game that you can fly high.

Are you sure Charizard can be found on those routes before the player beats the champion?
Those are just the places you can find it. If you want a Charizard b4 the E4, I'd say evolve your Charmander.

Pokemon who fly high like the "Zard" can most likely be found later on after E4.
