Combusken (Japanese: ワカシャモ Wakasyamo) is a dual-type Fire/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Torchic starting at level 16 and evolves into Blaziken starting at level 36.

Biology

Combusken is a bipedal, chicken-like Pokémon. Most of Combusken's upper body is yellow, while most of the lower body is orange. An orange, pointed design adorns the center of its waist at the dividing line of the two colors. It has orange eyes and short, wide beak. There is a feather crest on top of its head with three orange points. This crest is smaller on female Combusken. Its tail is short and pointed. It has three, sharp claws at the ends of its long arms, and scaly, gray legs with well-developed thighs covered in shaggy feathers. Because of the training Combusken does by running through its grassland habitat, these legs are capable of delivering a barrage of kicks. While it is fighting, it is noisy and produces sharp cries that distract and intimidate its opponent.

Major appearances

May's Combusken

May's Torchic evolved into a Combusken in A Shroomish Skirmish, and long after into a Blaziken in Once More with Reeling!

Other

Combusken first appeared in Having a Wailord of a Time. The Nurse Joy of Slateport City was keeping a Torchic, Treecko and Mudkip for a girl who was going to start being a Trainer. The Torchic evolved and had to be hidden. After the Combusken saved a Wailord, Nurse Joy decided to keep it as a guard for her Pokémon Center.

Minor appearances

A Combusken appeared in a flashback in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs (Part Two).

In the manga

Combusken in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Chic

Sapphire's Torchic that she received from her father, Professor Birch, evolved into a Combusken before her challenge of Gym Leader Brawly in Mashing Makuhita, and won against his Hariyama even after her partner Rono had nearly collapsed. After undergoing much training and being used against fights against the likes of Team Aqua and in friendly bouts against Flannery, she evolved again to a Blaziken battling Winona, though she failed to win.

Multiple Combusken were used by Team Galactic Grunts in Exit Empoleon.
