This thing kicks hard!

Everything we know about Blaziken

Blaziken is the final evolution of Torchic, the Gen 3 starter Pokémon. It possesses a Fire and Fighting-type combination, which can be extremely effective against a variety of different types.

When Mega Evolved, Blaziken gains a set of flaming ribbons that trail as it attacks.

Blaziken is described as the 'Blaze Pokémon' and has flames spouting from its wrists. These flames envelop its knuckles, allowing it to scorch its foes with fast punches.

Blaziken does have a shiny form in Pokémon Go, which has a slightly darker red and yellow covering. This colour-based variant was introduced during Torchic's Community Day in May 2019.

Have fun battling Mega Blaziken!
