Combusken

Combusken is a dual-type Fire/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It evolves from Torchic starting at level 16 and evolves into Blaziken starting at level 36. It is a bipedal, chicken-like Pokémon. Most of Combusken’s upper body is yellow, while most of the lower body is orange. It has orange eyes and short, wide beak. There is a feather crest on top of its head with three orange points.

Because of the training Combusken does by running through its grassland habitat, its legs are capable of delivering a barrage of kicks. While it is fighting, it is noisy and produces sharp cries that distract and intimidate its opponent.

Combusken is a fire chicken that evolves from Torchic and evolves again into Blaziken. Torchic is one of the Generation 3 starters, along with Mudkip and Treecko. Combusken is the first of 3 fire-fighting starters that have become an annoyingly repetitive: Blaziken, Infernape and Emboar. When Gen 7 starters and evolutions were announced, it was believed that Incineroar would beome a fire-fighting, given it’s ties to a wrestler. However it become a fire-dark type, despite it’s involvement in Smash Bros and Pokken, two fighting games.
