Hoenn Starters and Evolutions: The Treecko Line

By Jo

It’s small, swift, and lizard-like. Treecko, the Wood Gecko Pokemon, is very quick on its feet and it the Hoenn region’s grass-type starter. Treecko are said to be very calm and level headed, never losing their heads and panicking while in a battle. They live in tall trees and are said to be the protectors of forests. Because they live so far off the ground, they use the tiny hooks on their feet to scale steep slopes and have even been known to use those hooks to climb up walls and hang from ceilings.

Treecko are known to be a bit prideful, taking on larger opponents without a second glance and is extremely protective of its territory. According to its pokédex entries, Treecko attacks by slamming its opponents with its thick tail. Its tail has more uses than that, though. Its tail can also be used to detect the humidity in the air and predict the weather for the next day. Out of any of the unevolved starters, Treecko has the highest speed stat. Treecko and its evolutions are also the only bipedal grass-type starter Pokemon evolutionary line (Snivy and Servine are bipedal, though Serperior doesn’t have any legs). Treeko is thought to be based off from a gecko or lizard. It appears to have similarities to the leaf-tailed gecko, a type of lizard that’s appendages allow it to blend in with its surroundings that can also climb up flat surfaces. Treecko’s name most-likely comes from the words ‘tree’ and ‘gecko’.

Torchic is a fire type starter, known as the chick Pokemon, and known as Achamo in Japan. It can learn strong moves like flamethrower, peck, and slash. It can evolve into a Combusken at level 16, and then into Blaziken at level 36.

Ruby And Sapphire Pokemon Game

By Anonymous

In Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire there are three starters. Torchic, Treeko, and Mudkip. I advise to go with either Torchic or Mudkip as it is hard to find a good fire and water Pokemon in Ruby or Sapphire until you get Groudon or Kyogre. Mudkip evolves into Marshtomp then into Swampert, Treeko evolves into Grovyle then into Sceptile, and Torchic evolves into Combusken then into Blaziken.

Torchic is a fire type starter Pokemon, or in Japanese it is known as Achamo. Its ability is Blaze, that is where it raises the power of Torchic’s Fire-type attacks by 1.5x while Torchic has less than 1/3 of its max HP (rounded down). It can learn moves as strong as flamethrower, firespin, and peck. Torchic evolves into Combusken at level 16 and then into Blaziken at level 36. Its weaknesses are water and ground Pokemon.
