In the Anime
May's first Pokémon was a Torchic. It later evolves into Combusken.
It is set to reappear in the Pikachu short airing with the 15th Pokémon movie.
Torchic is a bright orange and yellow colored chick with three large feathers on its head. It has a small, tannish beak with large black eyes. Its feet have three toes and when you hug it, it feels like a warm waterbottle.
