If you evolve Torchic all the way to Blaziken between 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm, it will learn the exclusive move Blast Burn. However, starting on Community Day, and anytime thereafter, you will be able to TM Blaziken’s signature charge move Blaze Kick.
It’s a no brainer that you will want to hold on to Blast Burn since the recent nerfing of Blaze Kick. May it R.I.P. However, the option is still there to add Blaze Kick, via TMs after Community Day, if you wish.
Make sure you do not have any connection or GPS issues while evolving, or else it might not get the move! Blast Burn fires up Blaziken in the standings of one of the best, if not the best depending on who you ask, Fire-type attackers along with Moltres and others… Be on the lookout for a full meta-analysis from GO Hub’s Meta-Master himself, Kratos, to be published REAL soon!
Below is a checklist of items to have on hand before that three-hour grind:

Here is the search string you will want to copy and paste into the search bar when looking for possible 100% Torchic!
You can also use our search string generator to make a string of your own or change ‘cp’ to whatever it needs to be for your country’s language.
The shiny Torchic family is one of those shiny family that may make you look twice, so be on the lookout for that little shiny symbol. Although the colors of Torchic itself are reversed, it still looks like what this Trainer would consider “normal” for a baby chicken. Combusken and Blaziken take on a richer hue of red-orange in their shiny forms compared to their normal forms.
To help with identification, below are our comparison tables. Normal on the left and shiny on the right.
