Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl: How to get Torchic, Combusken, Blaziken
The Hoenn starter trio can be found in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl. In Pokemon BDSP, here’s how to get Torchic, Combusken, and Blaziken, along with their evolutions and specific locations.
The three mascots of Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald are Treecko, Mudkip, and Torchic. They’re popular among fans since many gamers associate the Game Boy Advance with fond memories.
The trio’s Fire-type member can be obtained and assigned to your team in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, along with its evolutions Combusken and Blaziken.
How to catch Torchic in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
You won’t be able to get the Hoenn starter until you’ve completed the main story by defeating the Elite Four and the Sinnoh Champion. You must also have completed the National Dex. Take a look at our instructions for more information.
The best approach to catch Torchic is to follow the procedures below:
- After getting your hands on the National Dex, head to the Grand Underground using your Explorer Kit.
- Go to Typhlo Cavern or a cave with a lava biome. These appear as red icons on your Underground map.
- Torchic is a rare spawn so if it doesn’t show up after entering the Hideaway, exit and re-enter the room until it appears.
- Run into it and battle and catch it. You have a higher chance of catching it fast if you use a Quick Ball.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl: How do you get Combusken?
In the Sinnoh remakes, there is only one way to obtain Ivysaur: develop Torchic — you cannot catch it.
The Fire-type starter evolves at level 16, so either fight it while it’s still in your Party or spend Rare Candy to make it transform.
In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, Blaziken evolves.
Blaziken can only be obtained by evolving, as it does not spawn anywhere in the game, so good luck if you were trying to catch it.
At level 36, Combusken evolves, so do the same thing you did with Torchic: battle it or spend Rare Candy until you achieve the final transformation.
That’s all there is to it! In BDSP, you should have caught Torchic and evolved it into Combusken and Blaziken.
