Blaziken (Japanese: バシャーモ Basyaamo) is the Fire/Fighting-type Starter Pokémon of the Hoenn region, introduced in Generation III.


Gender differences

A female has shorter "hair" than a male. The V-shape on a female's "mask" is also smaller.


Blaziken is red pokemon with the appearence of a monsterous pokemon. Even though Blaziken has a monster-like appearence it's not in the Monster-Egg Group. It's hair is in a V-shape, fire is sprouting out of it's wrist, it's yellow leg hair is covering it's feet, and it has cream colored hair in it's head-neck area.

Special abilities

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.

In the Manga

In the Pokémon Adventures Manga, Sapphire owns a Blaziken.

In the anime

Blaziken's first appearance in the anime was in the episode Pop Goes the Sneasel under the ownership of Harrison. It was used here against a Sneasel that prevented the Silver Conference from beginning.

May's Combusken evolved into a Blaziken after a battle with Team Rocket in the episode Once More With Reeling. She then used her new Blaziken in a Pokemon Contest against Ash's Sceptile.

Blaziken also appeared in the Pokémon Movie: Destiny Deoxys, under the ownership of a minor main character named Rafe.


Blaziken is the evolved form of Combusken, and is the final evolutionary form of the starter Pokémon Torchic. Starting at level 36, Combusken can evolve into Blaziken.

Game info

Blaziken first appeared as the evolved form of one of the starter Pokémon, Torchic, in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. It is Torchic's final evolved form, evolving from Combusken at level 36. Its fire-type attacks are more physical such as Blaze Kick and Fire Punch, as opposed to other attacks like Flamethrower and Fire Blast. In Heartgold and Soulsilver, you can receive a Torchic from Steven Stone.

  • Blaziken is the lightest final form of all starting Pokémon.
  • The first and second evolutions of Gen. III-V fire starters are Fire-Fighting type.
  • Blaziken's base attack is the second highest of all the final form starter Pokémon after Emboar.
  • Its name is derived from the word "Blaze" and "Chicken".
  • Blaziken is the only fire starter not able to learn Flamethrower through leveling up.
  • It is thought that Blaziken's legs are based on MC Hammer's parachute pants.
  • Though Blaziken is Fire/Fighting type, it can learn Flying-type moves such as Mirror Move and Brave Bird. This may be because its face and hair are birdlike and its pre-evolutions resemble birds, but instead of flying it fights.
  • Blaziken can cause fire to erupt from its wrists, usually during fights, though they may flare up more when angry or threatened.
