Blaziken (Japanese: バシャーモ Bashaamo) is the Fire/Fighting-type Starter Pokémon of the Hoenn region, introduced in Generation III. From Generation VI onwards it can Mega Evolve.

Biology

Physiology

Blaziken is a large, bipedal, humanoid bird-like Pokémon that resembles a rooster. Its face, lower body, arms, and tail are bright red, with some yellow patches on its chest, and running down its legs and feet. It has a tan-colored plume of feathers surrounding its face and chest, like a mane. Two long, tan feathery plumes stem from the back of Blaziken's head. It has blue eyes with yellow scleras. Its mouth is beak-like and hooked, with small nostrils, and it has a V-shaped crest on its forehead. Its arms are long, with sharp, gray claws. It has gray claws at the bases of its yellow-feathered feet. It has a small, pointed red tail.

Gender differences

A female has shorter "hair" than a male. The V-shape on a female's "mask" is also smaller.

Natural abilities

Blaziken has the Ability Blaze. allowing it to use Fire-Type moves with up to 150% damage, but only if its HP is below 30%. In Pokémon Black and White, you can get a Torchic from Dream World with the ability Speed Boost, which makes its Speed rise every turn. This Ability is then retained when Torchic is fully evolved into Blaziken. Aside from its Abilities, Blaziken can leap incredible heights (actually being able to effortlessly transcend a 30-story building) with its outstanding leg strength. It can also make flames spout from its wrists and ankles, shrouding its feet and fists, and practices a form of martial art with these abilities to overwhelm the enemy with in battle. The stronger the foe it faces, the more intensely its flames burn.

Evolution

Blaziken is the evolved form of Combusken, and is the final evolutionary form of the starter Pokémon Torchic. Starting at level 36, Combusken can evolve into Blaziken. Blaziken can further evolve into Mega Blaziken using the Blazikenite.

Appearances

Anime

Blaziken's first appearance in the anime was in the episode Pop Goes the Sneasel under the ownership of Harrison. It was used here against a Sneasel that prevented the Silver Conference from beginning.

May's Combusken evolved into a Blaziken after a battle with Team Rocket in the episode Once More With Reeling as May mistakes Combusken for being sick when it evolved. She then used her new Blaziken in a Pokémon Contest against Ash's Sceptile.

Blaziken also appeared in the Pokémon Movie: Destiny Deoxys, under the ownership of a minor main character named Rafe.

Its Mega Evolution debuted in Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin! and it was owned by Clemont's father Meyer who disguises himself as the Blaziken Mask to assists Ash and the group from any danger especially Team Flare's deadly carnage in Lumiose City.

Known trainers with a Blaziken

Manga

In the Pokémon Adventures Manga, Sapphire owns a Blaziken.

Trivia

  • Blaziken's base Attack is the second highest of all the final form starter Pokémon after Emboar.
  • Blaziken is the only Fire-type starter not able to learn Flamethrower through leveling up.
  • It is thought that Blaziken's legs are based on MC Hammer's parachute pants.
  • Though Blaziken is both a Fire/Fighting type, it can learn Flying-type moves such as Mirror Move and Brave Bird, possibly due to the consistency of bird-like resemblances in Torchic's evolutionary chain.
  • Blaziken can cause fire to erupt from its wrists, usually during fights, though they may flare up more when angry or threatened.
  • Blaziken was introduced as the evolved form of one of the starter Pokémon, Torchic, in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. It is Torchic's final evolved form, evolving from Combusken at level 36. Its Fire-type attacks are mostly Physical, exemplified by Blaze Kick and Fire Punch, as opposed to other (Special) attacks such as Flamethrower and Fire Blast. In HeartGold & SoulSilver, you can receive a Torchic from Steven Stone.
  • Blaziken was one of the first Pokémon to be featured in Pokkén Tournament, the other two being Lucario and Machamp.
    • Intrestingly, these are all Fighting types.
  • It is the first Fire-typed starter Pokémon to have the combination of Fire and Fighting types, proceeded by Infernape and Emboar.
  • Blaziken is the only fully evolved Hoenn starter that can mega evolve in X and Y. Sceptile and Swampert could Mega Evolve in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
  • Blaziken is the only final starter evolution that has a gender difference and is not Grass-type.
  • Blaziken’s fighting style is mostly based on Muay Thai Kickboxing, most noticeably on its signature kicks, and its Mega form’s fighting stance since in X and Y.

Origin

Blaziken is based on a fighting rooster or chicken that is bred for cockfighting. It might also draw inspiration from the Japanese myth of the Basan, which is depicted as a giant fire-breathing chicken.

Etymology

Blaziken's name is a combination of the words "blazing" (extended from “blaze”) and "chicken".
