Special Abilities[]

Torchic has a fireball blazing inside its belly. When you hugged, it fills its trainer with soothing warmth, as if they are holding a hot-water bottle. It can use the flame in its belly to exhale orbs of searing fire at its opponents. The fireballs that Torchic spits are of 1,800 degrees F, leaving its foes utterly scorched.
