Blaziken (バシャーモ) is the sixth Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Fire/Fighting type, and is known as the Blaze Pokémon.

Blaziken uses the Blaze Ability, which increases the power of its Fire-Type moves by 50% once its HP falls below one-third of its maximum. Blaziken's Hidden Ability is Speed Boost, which increases its Speed by one stage for each full turn that it is in battle.

Torchic can evolve into Combusken at Level 16 and a second time into Blaziken at Level 36.

Blaziken is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Blaziken 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.


[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Blaziken takes the appearance of a human-shaped bird. Instead of hands, it has talons at the end of its arms, curled up into a fist capable of throwing one mean haymaker. Flames emit from its wrists when Blaziken faces a challenging opponent.

[edit] Gender Differences

The mane of a Male Blaziken is slightly longer than a Female Blaziken's mane.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Blaziken can only be obtained by evolving Combusken or by trading for one. This is consistent across all Generations that it can appear in.

Blaziken can be found on the East Road in Pokémon Ranger. Blaziken appears at the Altru Building in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, towards the end of the game. Blaziken also appears in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, at the exit of the Faldera Volcano in the Present, and is the end boss of the Fire Temple Mission "Which Switch Is for Mime Jr.?" Defeating it with an S Rank will sometimes yield Blaziken's slate, but only on rare occasions.

Blaziken can be found at Misty Edgewater Cave 2-2 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.

[edit] Trading Card Game

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Blaziken has had a few anime appearances over the years. The most notable anime character to use one is May who evolved one from Combusken late in the Kanto Battle Frontier travels. Its first battle was against Ash and his Sceptile in a Contest Battle, which ended in a well-fought draw.

Harrison was the first person ever seen with one in the anime when he used it on a few occasions during the Johto Silver Conference including in his battle against Ash, defeating his Bayleef and Charizard.

A mysterious Blaziken has appeared on multiple appearances in Kalos starting in Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!. This Blaziken is owned by an unknown individual, who is capable of triggering its Mega Evolution.

[edit] Movies

A trainer named used one in Destiny Deoxys, the lone appearance in the films for Blaziken as of writing.

[edit] Manga

Sapphire's Combusken would evolve into a Blaziken in a battle against Winona in Chapter 226. Since then, "Chaka", the nickname given to her by her Trainer, has also made appearances in Chapters 227, 230, 243, 248, 252, 256, 267, 321, 323, 326-330, 332, 333, 335 & 336,

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Blaziken was placed in UU in 4th Generation Tiers. For Generation V, it was bumped all the way to Uber because of the advantage given to it by its new ability, Speed Boost. Combining its Hidden Ability with high Offensive Statistics and a movepool that includes many powerful moves. It performs well on Sun-Based teams in the Uber Tier, making Flare Blitz a very dangerous move in spite of the recoil.

Disabling the weather and/or phazing Blaziken will eliminate the Statistical increases that occur with a Blaziken that uses Speed Boost. Using Extremespeed to bypass the increases to its Speed work wonders too, especially with Blaziken's relatively low defenses.
