A female has shorter "hair" than a male. The V-shape on a female's "mask" is also smaller.
Blaziken has the special ability Blaze. With this, it is able to use Fire-Type moves with up to 150% damage, but only if its Hp is below 30%. In addition to this, Blaziken can leap to incredible heights with its impressive leg strength. It can also cover its fists and feet with fire while battling. In Pokemon Black and White, you can get a Torchic from Dream World with the ability Speed Boost, which makes it faster. This ability is then retained when Torchic is fully evolved into Blaziken. It can also leap over a skyscraper with a single jump. It can make flames spout from its wrists and ankles, cloaking its feet or fists, and practices a form of martial art with these abilities. The stronger the foe it faces, the more intensely its flames burn. It may also launch a fiery kick at the opponent.
