Torchic is a Fire-type starter Pokemon that evolves into Combusken at level 16. And then, it evolves into Blaziken at level 36. As its name suggests, it is a chick with yellow wings and is covered in orange feathers. A flame-like crest rests on its head. A male Torchic has a black speck on its rear. The female Torchic lacks that black speck. Its weapon is the ability to shoot fireballs at its enemies. It is the lightest and slowest Fire-type starter Pokemon.
The Pokemon X and Y Torchic Distribution for the Mega Evolution of Blaziken is only available for a limited time (from Oct. 12, 2013 to Jan. 15, 2014). If you miss your chance to receive this rare Torchic as a gift, then kiss Mega Evolve Blaziken goodbye. That's why Pokemon X and Y players should take advantage of this rare Torchic gift by connecting to the Internet as soon as they can and following the Torchic Distribution Instructions and the steps to receive the torchic with the Blazikenite.
