'''Chic''' (Japanese: '''ちゃも''' ''Chamo''), known as '''Toro''' in [[Chuang Yi]]'s translations, is a {{p|Blaziken}} that {{adv|Sapphire}} owns in [[Pokémon Adventures]] and one of her first Pokémon. Chic was given to Sapphire by her father, [[Professor Birch]]. As of ''[[PS266|It All Ends Now VII]]'', she is level 59 and her [[Characteristic]] is "thoroughly cunning."

{{adv|Sapphire}} received Chic from her father, [[Professor Birch]]. She was first seen after Sapphire rescued {{adv|Ruby}} from a pack of wild {{p|Mightyena}} and took him to her [[Secret Base]], and the beauty-obsessed boy thought she was a Pokémon, and attacked after she started talking. Despite its type disadvantage against [[Mumu|his newly received Mudkip]], it was able to defeat it, and then fought a wild {{p|Seviper}}, though it failed to finish it off. She then took Chic on her journey to conquer the eight Gyms of [[Hoenn]] after she made a pact with Ruby, and fought the (then) {{tc|Team Aqua Grunt|Aqua Grunts}} [[Aqua Admin Amber|Amber]], [[Aqua Admin Matt|Matt]], and [[Shelly]] at [[Rustboro City]], where it managed to defeat the latter's {{p|Ludicolo}} with a {{DL|Ruby (Adventures)|Popo|Castform}}'s help. She failed to use it in her first Gym battle with [[Roxanne]], though, because her {{p|Nosepass}} used its {{a|Magnet Pull}} Ability, leaving her unable to switch.

  +
Prior to the start of her {{pkmn|journey}}, {{adv|Sapphire}} received Chic as a {{p|Torchic}} from her father, [[Professor Birch]]. Chic first appeared in the end of ''[[PS182|Making Mirth with Mightyena]]'', resting atop Sapphire's head. It was soon revealed that the two rescued {{adv|Ruby}} from a pack of wild {{p|Mightyena}} and took him to Sapphire's [[Secret Base]]. Upon waking up, the beauty-obsessed boy thought she was a Pokémon, and attacked after she started talking. Despite her type disadvantage against his newly received [[Mumu|Mudkip]], she was able to defeat him, and then fought a wild {{p|Seviper}}, though she failed to finish it off.
   
After intensive training at [[Granite Cave]] with [[Rono]], she evolved into {{p|Combusken}} and defeated [[Brawly's Hariyama]] in the [[Dewford Gym]] after a tough battle where Rono, even after evolving into a {{p|Lairon}}, was nearly beaten in seconds. Sapphire then took Chic to the [[Abandoned Ship]] on {{DL|Sapphire (Adventures)|Lorry}}'s back, where it fought the [[Magma Admin]]s [[Tabitha]] and [[Magma Admin Courtney|Courtney]], but thanks to the latter's devious use of an [[Tamato Berry|acidic berry]], Sapphire was rendered unable to see, and had to rely on Ruby for assistance. Although they seemingly won the battle with {{DL|Ruby (Adventures)|Plusle}} and {{DL|Sapphire (Adventures)|Minun}}'s help, the two Magmas ultimately fulfilled their objective of stealing the {{key|III|Scanner}} which belonged to the two Pokémon's owner.
+
In ''[[PS188|Lombre Larceny]]'', Chic battled [[Team Aqua]], as they had trapped a [[Fofo|Castform]] in a fountain. Both Chic and [[Rono]] defeated Team Aqua's {{p|Sharpedo}} and {{p|Carvanha}}, but took damage from their [[Ability]] {{a|Rough Skin}}. Due to the injury Rono was unable to take out [[Shelly]]'s {{p|Ludicolo}}, but Chic was able to defeat it with help from Castform.
   
[[File:Chic Combusken.png|thumb|left|200px|Chic as a Combusken]]
+
In ''[[PS195|Mashing Makuhita]]'', Sapphire trains Chic and Rono at [[Granite Cave]] in order to prepare for her [[Gym]] battle against [[Brawly]]. After training for most of the day the two [[evolution|evolve]] into {{p|Combusken}} and {{p|Lairon}}. Sapphire then goes to Brawly and begins their battle. Chic first battles against his {{p|Machop}}. Due to her increased speed and power she easily overpowers Machop, forcing Brawly to switch it in. Chic is later sent out against his {{TP|Brawly|Makuhita}}. Due to its {{a|Thick Fat}} Ability and Jū fighting style Chic is overwhelmed and slammed into a wall, getting her claw stuck in the process. Makuhita then evolves into {{p|Hariyama}} and moves in to finish Chic off with {{m|Counter}}. Although it looks like Chic lost Hariyama soon fainted, as Chic attacked twice thanks to {{m|Double Kick}}.
Afterwards, Sapphire soon headed to [[Mauville City]], but ended up getting the Badge for free from [[Wattson]] anyway, something she despised as she felt she had to work for a Badge properly instead. Because, in the end, Sapphire never got to fight the old man even after rescuing him, Chic only gained a new comrade in {{DL|Sapphire (Adventures)|Phado}}. She was next seen in [[Lavaridge Town]] after Sapphire arrived there, where it finally had a chance to battle but was easily caught by Matt's {{p|Azumarill}} and didn't get to defeat it. After [[Team Aqua]] succeeded in cooling [[Mt. Chimney]]'s volcano, Chic had a friendly fight with Sapphire's new chum, [[Flannery]]'s {{p|Magcargo}}, and though it didn't win, earned her the {{badge|Heat}}. A while later, Chic finally evolved into {{p|Blaziken}} during her battle with [[Winona]], but lost against her superior skills, and Sapphire ended up in her tuition. After a fight with Ruby over Hoenn's fate, which the boy claims he doesn't care about, Sapphire was so enraged that she ripped off the clothes Ruby made for her, and went back to donning leaf branches. This fit of anger allowed Chic to go all-out on Winona's Pokémon, and earned her recognition, giving Sapphire the {{badge|Feather}}.
+

  +
In ''[[PS199|Adding It Up with Plusle & Minun II]]'', Chic was used alongside Rono to battle {{FB|Magma Admin|Courtney}} and her {{p|Ninetales}}. The two were quickly defeated.
   
After the resolved this dispute, Chic teamed up with {{adv|Ruby}}'s "Mumu," now a {{p|Swampert}}, in a [[Double Battle]] against [[Archie]] and [[Maxie]] at the [[Seafloor Cavern]], where they were obviously winning, but were dragged all the way to [[Sootopolis City]], where {{p|Groudon}} and {{p|Kyogre}} fought a decisive battle, and the two were under the titans' influence. With a {{key|III|Meteorite}} she picked up in Mt. Chimney, Ruby and Sapphire were able to release the {{DL|Legendary artifacts|Red Orb|Red}} and {{DL|Legendary artifacts|Blue Orb}}s, which they were absorbed into their bodies, a fact Ruby deduced after they awakened at the [[Mirage Island]]. To better their chances of winning the next time, Ruby suggested that Sapphire teach Chic {{m|Sky Uppercut}}, which after undergoing much training to learn it, really did come in handy in the final battle against the two now-insane leaders at Sootopolis.
+
In ''[[PS212|Bubble Bubble Toil and Azumarill I]]'', Chic battled {{FB|Aqua Admin|Matt}} and his {{p|Azumarill}}. Chic was quickly overwhelmed and pushed back by the Aqua Rabbit Pokémon's water attacks.
   
In the [[Emerald chapter (Adventures)|Emerald arc]], Chic was Sapphire's most used Pokémon in the numerous {{DL|Battle Frontier (Generation III)|Battle Dome}} and {{Gdis|Battle Tower|III}} battles, but ended up losing against {{FB|Dome Ace|Tucker}}'s powerful {{p|Salamence}}. After {{adv|Emerald}} ended up freeing the five petrified [[Pokédex Holder]]s, she learned the ultimate fire attack, {{m|Blast Burn}}, from [[Ultima]]'s metal ring, and helped destroy [[Guile Hideout]]'s enormous, fake Kyogre monster.
+
In ''[[PS216|Mixing It Up with Magcargo]]'', Chic battled Team Aqua. Sapphire has Chic and [[Troppy]] launch a barrage of attacks that continue to get countered, no matter how hard they try. Sapphire, suddenly realizing something, has Chic and Troppy hold their fire. Approaching the "enemy," Sapphire discovers that a ring of {{m|Mirror Coat}} has been set up around them, reflecting all their attacks back upon themselves, and that Team Aqua had left long ago.
   
Chic reappeared in the {{chap|Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire}}.
+
In ''[[PS226|I Dare Ya, Altaria... Knock Chic off My Shoulder]]'', Chic battled [[Winona]] and her {{TP|Winona|Altaria}}. The two begin by exchanging a few blows, and Chic hides in the trees to get above {{p|Altaria}}. Chic soon jumps out and uses {{m|Double Team}} to confuse Altaria, followed up by slamming Altaria down to the ground, causing her to evolve into Blaziken. With her new form Sapphire assumes that {{m|Blaze Kick}} will be powerful enough to win and has Chic score a direct hit. Winona takes advantage of their cocky attitude and has Altaria heal its burn with {{m|Refresh}} before defeating Chic with a powered up {{m|Sky Attack}} from {{m|Dragon Dance}}.
  +
  +
In ''[[PS248|The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon X]]'', Chic, alongside Ruby and Sapphire's other Pokémon, battled [[Archie]] and [[Maxie]]. She and Mumu attempted to deliver a decisive blow, but failed to do any real damage. In ''[[PS252|The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon XIV]]'', Chic and Mumu attack the meteor fragment coming from Archie and Maxie, which sends a powerful blast of energy out. The energy hits Maxie and Archie's foreheads, turning them back to normal and stops the power of the [[Red Orb|Red]] and [[Blue Orb]]s.

In ''[[PS267|It All Ends Now VIII]]'', Chic battled alongside the rest of Sapphire and Ruby's Pokémon against Maxie and Archie.

In ''[[PS330|The Final Battle III]]'', Chic is taught the ultimate move {{m|Blast Burn}}. She was soon used alongside [[Blue's Charizard]] and {{adv|Gold}}'s [[Exbo]] to attack with Blast Burn to help destroy Guile Hideout's fake {{p|Kyogre}}.

The training was issued by {{Steven}} and [[Mr. Stone]] as part of a plan dedicated to preventing a giant [[Grand Meteor Delta|meteoroid]] from crashing into the planet. With a set of [[Key Stone|Mega Bracelets]] and [[Mega Stone]]s obtained from Steven, Chic gained the ability to use [[Mega Evolution]]. After a day of training, Chic fully mastered Blast Burn and attained her Mega-Evolved state.
  +
  +
With the training over, Mr. Stone had everyone taken to the [[Sea Mauville]] for the next stage of the plan. [[PAORAS07|There]], Chic and Sceptile were put on a set of machines known as the [[ultimate weapon|Absorber]] and ordered to coat themselves in the power of the ultimate moves. Once ready, Mr. Stone and Steven active the Absorbers, which proceed to painfully drain the life energy of Chic and Sceptile. The energy was converted into [[Infinity Energy]] and used to power a device called the dimensional shifter capable of warping the meteoroid to another location.

Chic was given to Sapphire by her father, Professor Birch. As of It All Ends Now VII, she is level 59 and her Characteristic is "thoroughly cunning."

History

Ruby & Sapphire chapter

As a Torchic

Prior to the start of her journey, Sapphire received Chic as a Torchic from her father, Professor Birch. Chic first appeared in the end of Making Mirth with Mightyena, resting atop Sapphire's head. It was soon revealed that the two rescued Ruby from a pack of wild Mightyena and took him to Sapphire's Secret Base. Upon waking up, the beauty-obsessed boy thought she was a Pokémon, and attacked after she started talking. Despite her type disadvantage against his newly received Mudkip, she was able to defeat him, and then fought a wild Seviper, though she failed to finish it off.

In Lombre Larceny, Chic battled Team Aqua, as they had trapped a Castform in a fountain. Both Chic and Rono defeated Team Aqua's Sharpedo and Carvanha, but took damage from their Ability Rough Skin. Due to the injury Rono was unable to take out Shelly's Ludicolo, but Chic was able to defeat it with help from Castform.

In Mashing Makuhita, Sapphire trains Chic and Rono at Granite Cave in order to prepare for her Gym battle against Brawly. After training for most of the day the two evolve into Combusken and Lairon. Sapphire then goes to Brawly and begins their battle. Chic first battles against his Machop. Due to her increased speed and power she easily overpowers Machop, forcing Brawly to switch it in. Chic is later sent out against his Makuhita. Due to its Thick Fat Ability and Jū fighting style Chic is overwhelmed and slammed into a wall, getting her claw stuck in the process. Makuhita then evolves into Hariyama and moves in to finish Chic off with Counter. Although it looks like Chic lost Hariyama soon fainted, as Chic attacked twice thanks to Double Kick.

As a Combusken

In Adding It Up with Plusle & Minun II, Chic was used alongside Rono to battle Courtney and her Ninetales. The two were quickly defeated.

In Bubble Bubble Toil and Azumarill I, Chic battled Matt and his Azumarill. Chic was quickly overwhelmed and pushed back by the Aqua Rabbit Pokémon's water attacks.

In Mixing It Up with Magcargo, Chic battled Team Aqua. Sapphire has Chic and Troppy launch a barrage of attacks that continue to get countered, no matter how hard they try. Sapphire, suddenly realizing something, has Chic and Troppy hold their fire. Approaching the "enemy," Sapphire discovers that a ring of Mirror Coat has been set up around them, reflecting all their attacks back upon themselves, and that Team Aqua had left long ago.

In I Dare Ya, Altaria... Knock Chic off My Shoulder, Chic battled Winona and her Altaria. The two begin by exchanging a few blows, and Chic hides in the trees to get above Altaria. Chic soon jumps out and uses Double Team to confuse Altaria, followed up by slamming Altaria down to the ground, causing her to evolve into Blaziken. With her new form Sapphire assumes that Blaze Kick will be powerful enough to win and has Chic score a direct hit. Winona takes advantage of their cocky attitude and has Altaria heal its burn with Refresh before defeating Chic with a powered up Sky Attack from Dragon Dance.

In The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon X, Chic, alongside Ruby and Sapphire's other Pokémon, battled Archie and Maxie. She and Mumu attempted to deliver a decisive blow, but failed to do any real damage. In The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon XIV, Chic and Mumu attack the meteor fragment coming from Archie and Maxie, which sends a powerful blast of energy out. The energy hits Maxie and Archie's foreheads, turning them back to normal and stops the power of the Red and Blue Orbs.

In It All Ends Now VIII, Chic battled alongside the rest of Sapphire and Ruby's Pokémon against Maxie and Archie.

Emerald chapter

In Cunning Kirlia, Chic advanced Sapphire through the Battle Dome.

In Facing Gulpin Is Hard to Swallow, Chic helped Sapphire, Ruby, Emerald, and Noland advance through the Battle Tower to reach Guile Hideout.

In The Final Battle III, Chic is taught the ultimate move Blast Burn. She was soon used alongside Blue's Charizard and Gold's Exbo to attack with Blast Burn to help destroy Guile Hideout's fake Kyogre.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter

Chic and Sapphire

In Omega Alpha Adventure 3, Chic, alongside Mumu and Emerald's Sceptile, trained under Ultima in order to fully master the ultimate moves. The training was issued by Steven and Mr. Stone as part of a plan dedicated to preventing a giant meteoroid from crashing into the planet. With a set of Mega Bracelets and Mega Stones obtained from Steven, Chic gained the ability to use Mega Evolution. After a day of training, Chic fully mastered Blast Burn and attained her Mega-Evolved state.

With the training over, Mr. Stone had everyone taken to the Sea Mauville for the next stage of the plan. There, Chic and Sceptile were put on a set of machines known as the Absorber and ordered to coat themselves in the power of the ultimate moves. Once ready, Mr. Stone and Steven active the Absorbers, which proceed to painfully drain the life energy of Chic and Sceptile. The energy was converted into Infinity Energy and used to power a device called the dimensional shifter capable of warping the meteoroid to another location.

Personality and characteristics
