Torchic to Be Given Away for Free during Pokemon X and Y Launch


Everybody who cares about Pokemon is already waiting for Pokemon X and Y’s worldwide launch on October 12, because hey, it’s the latest and greatest installment in the franchise and will feature fresh new update to the gameplay, such as Mega Evolutions and the ability to customize your trainer. However, they have just given us one more reason to wait for October 12 with bated breath: on the day of Pokemon X and Y’s worldwide launch, players will be able to go online and download a free level 10 Torchic.

Old players will recognize Torchic as one of the starters from Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, but the Torchic that will be given away is very special and not something that you can just get via normal playthroughs. For starters, it comes with the hidden ability “Speed Boost,” along with its other skills scratch, growl, focus energy, and ember. What’s more, it also comes with a Blazekinite, which is the Mega Stone used for its Mega Evolution. This means once you evolve the Torchic to Blaziken, you can immediately use the Blazikenite in order to bust out some scary Mega Evolution action on the poor sod you’re playing against.
