Torchic (Japanese: アチャモ Achamo) is the Fire-type Starter Pokémon of the Hoenn region.

Biology

Physiology

Torchic is a small chick-like Pokémon. Its soft, fluffy plumage is mainly bright orange, with tiny yellow developing wings, and a yellow plume of three feathers atop its head. It has a small, tan beak, and large black eyes. It has tan-colored talons with three digits.

Special Abilities

Torchic has a fireball blazing inside its belly. When you hugged, it fills its trainer with soothing warmth, as if they are holding a hot-water bottle. It can use the flame in its belly to exhale orbs of searing fire at its opponents. The fireballs that Torchic spits are of 1,800 degrees F, leaving its foes utterly scorched.

Behavior

Torchic is very loyal and dependent on its trainer, following behind them everywhere they go.

Evolution

Torchic evolves into Combusken at level 16 and then into Blaziken at level 36.
