Gender differences

How did we find out about the black spot? I have three male torchics in diamond and I didn't see anything...Sludge 13:53, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Read that again...you have three MALE Torchic. The gender difference is the black spot on the back for males and no spot on the back for females. Look around their butts. -Sketch 13:56, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Notice the small spot on it's rear, that's how. It only appears in the backsprite.--FF(edits-talk) 13:58, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
A very minute difference like that is very easy to miss. Something that small can slip by even experts, especially if the difference is backsprite-only (partly why serebii.net never caught it). --Shiningpikablu252 15:48, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

shouldn't HeartGold/SoulSilver is after defeating Red but not trade? --Ruixiang95 11:36, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Automated template function. We'll patch everything up soon enough, don't you worry. —darklordtrom 11:48, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Typo

There is a little typo in Special Abilities. It says 'breath' instead of 'breathe'. -- Hohoo 20:19, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

What??!

Help! What's happened to the infobox? Giant Torchic!! Taromon 14:15, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Don't you find it odd

I know that it's evolved forms are more physical based, but if Torchic learns Flamethrower by level up. Why can't it's evolved forms? --Jono R 18:55, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Because that's how the games work. 梅子 19:35, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Fix help!

If anybody noticed the Sprites box's got two rows of each sprite for Gen IV.
Can somebody fix it since I don't know how to?
~ Thanks in advance. SaitoFX 17:19, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

The two rows are the different genders, as Torchic does have gender differences. (hint: look really closely at the backsprite.) Also, you aren't allowed to have sprites in your sig. Werdnae (talk) 18:50, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I didn't know that. Thanks for pointing both things out -about the sprites & about the signature.
As you probably expected, I'm still a newbie. SaitoFX 22:07, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome. The main "issue" with Torchic is that its gender difference is so minor that it isn't easily noticable, so rather than seeing it and going "Oh, there are two different sprites" people go "Why are there two sets of sprites?" As for the second bit, we were all new at one point. Werdnae (talk) 00:29, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Trivia

On the part about gender differences, it says that Torchic is the only base form of a starter with gender differences. Underneath it, it says that "Tepig also shares this distinction" or something like it. Tepig doesn't have gender differences as far as I know... KyuremsIceBlade 18:02, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
