In the anime

May has a Blaziken that she obtained as a Torchic in Get the Show on the Road!. It evolved into Combusken in A Shroomish Skirmish, and then into Blaziken in AG190.

Ash, Max and Brock were given the task of watching over a trio of Hoenn starter Pokémon for Nurse Joy while May was practicing with her Beautifly in Having a Wailord of a Time. The Torchic of that three managed to evolve and had to be hidden.

In the TFG

One Torchic figure has been released.
