Combusken using Double Kick by Saskle


Double Kick

“A double-kicking attack that strikes the foe twice.“

Double Kick is a multi-striking Fighting-Type move introduced in Generation I.

The user kicks its opponent two times in succession, with the first kick being the only opportunity to land a Critical Hit. From Generation II and onward, each strike varies in damage. Combusken can learn Double Kick when it evolves.



Flame Charge

“Cloaking itself in flame, the user attacks. Then, building up more power, the user raises its Speed stat.”

The Flame Charge is a Fire-Type move that was introduced in the Generation V Pokemon games.

Beside dealing damage to the enemy, it also raises the user’s Speed by one level.  It can be learnt through TM43. Combusken can also learn the move at level 20, starting from Generation VI.

#256 Combusken

“It lashes out with 10 kicks per second. Its strong fighting instinct compels it to keep up its offensive until the opponent gives up.”

Combusken is a dual fire / fighting type Pokémon first introduced in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.  Torchic evolves into this form at level 16 and can then go on to evolve into Blaziken at level 32.

Combusken still has the hot flame in its body like its previous evolution, getting bigger as it battles as shown with spewing hot flames from its beak.  Its legs are much more steady, now being used to fight with newfound physical strength.  It can give out harsh cries to its opponent, deals up to 10 kicks per second, plus its outstanding stamina means it can just keep going until its opponent concedes.  It maintains the high speed and power in its legs by running across fields and mountains.

May’s Torchic evolved into a Combusken during its plight to gain attention from her, reaching this form after ending up in a battle against a group of Shroomish.  As Combusken, it would be much more confident and decisive, no longer feeling as if it’s competing for anything from Beautifly.  Its strong performances and involvement in Pokémon Contests were also key to her entry and final placements at Slateport City’s Hoenn Grand Festival (top 8) and the Indigo Plateau’s Kanto Grand Festival (top 4).
