    How To Catch and Where To Find Torchic In Pokemon X and Y

    Between October 12th, 2013 to January 15th, 2014; Pokemon X and Y players can get a special Torchic holding the Blazikenite, the Mega Stone needed for Blaziken’s Mega Evolution.

    INFO: The Fire-type Pokemon Torchic evolves into Combusken at level 16, which in turn evolves into Blaziken at level 36.

    The Torchic you’ll get via the Nintendo Network has the Hidden Ability Speed Boost. Speed Boost increases a Pokémon’s Speed at the end of every turn, making it a very powerful Ability, and you can’t get it through normal gameplay. This Level 10 Pokémon knows the moves Scratch, Growl, Focus Energy, and Ember, a solid foundation of moves to start Torchic’s growth.

    STEP 1: Select “Mystery Gift” on the game’s Main Menu.
    STEP 2: Select “Receive Gift”, then choose “Yes”.
    STEP 3: Select “Get Via Internet”, then choose “Yes”.
    STEP 4: Watch as you receive Torchic, once it’s finished you’ll get an on-screen message saying “The gift has been received!”
    STEP 5: Then speak to the delivery girl in any Pokemon Center to receive Torchic. Beforehand free up 1 of the 6 spots in your party so there’s room for Torchic to be placed.
    STEP 6: After the game confirms you’ve “Received Torchic!” be sure to save your game! And after saving you’re done and you can play with Torchic.

    ALL 6 STEPS are shown in this video guide. Press play and it will show you with voice-over tips how to download Torchic & how to pick it up at a Pokemon Center:

    Tip: Before battle heal all your Pokemon in a Pokemon Center and then save your game in case anything goes wrong. When in battle make sure to never kill the Pokemon you’re trying to catch or you’ll fail, but not entirely since you can then reload the game you just saved before the battle.

    Important note about Mega Blaziken: Blaziken is the evolution of Torchic. If you miss your chance to receive this Torchic as a gift, you will not be able to Mega Evolve Blaziken. Get Torchic and the Blazikenite Mega Stone, and blaze toward Mega Evolution!

    Special thanks to Doug for the voice-over video guide with all the handy tips!
