Torchic (Japaneseアチャモ Achamo) is a Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Combusken starting at level 16, which evolves into Blaziken starting at level 36.

Along with Treecko and Mudkip, Torchic is one of three starter Pokémon of Hoenn available at the beginning of Pokémon Ruby, SapphireEmeraldOmega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.

Biology

Torchic is a small, chick Pokémon with stubby, downy, yellow wings. Its body is covered with orange feathers. There is an orange and yellow crest on its head that resembles a flame. Its two thin legs and short beak of are a light brownish yellow, and the feet have three toes in front and one in the back. A male Torchic will have a small black speck on its rear that is not present in females.

 

Somewhere in its belly, this Pokémon has a place where it keeps a flame. This internal flame causes Torchic to feel warm if hugged. When attacked, it will shoot fireballs of 1,800 °F (1,000 °C) at its foes, leaving them scorched black. It dislikes darkness, as it cannot see its surroundings. Torchic will follow its Trainer with unsteady steps. While Torchic is rarely found in the wild, it is known to inhabit grasslands.

Trivia

 
Pre-alpha sketch
  • A pre-alpha sketch from before Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire that was released portrays a different Torchic with large floppy ears and a flame-shaped marking on the back of its head.
  • Torchic is the only first stage of a starter Pokémon that has a gender difference (though its own is very easily missed, being only a one-pixel difference).
    • It also is in the only starter Pokémon evolutionary line in which all members have gender differences.
  • Torchic is the lightest Fire-type Pokémon.

Origin

It appears to have been based on a chicken hatchling. Torchic may also be based on the basan, a legendary fire-breathing chicken.

Name origin

Torchic is a combination of torch and chick (a baby bird).

Achamo is a combination of 赤子 akago (baby) and 軍鶏 shamo (a breed of Japanese chicken once raised for fighting).
