There is a reason. Not everyone will want Torchic. If they do, who's to say they won't keep Torchic and Fennekin on their team for some time period? I will be doing the latter. Since I skipped Torchic's debut generation, it's a new Pokemon to me. So I'll have the fun pleasure of experiencing 2 fire starters on my team for a period of time.
And those are just 2 quick scenarios that popped into my head.
The moral of the story: There will always be a reason for Fennekin.
People with mega-good taste don't. Torchic is one of the worst Pokemon lines ever.
How dare you? Btw, I fix'd that for you
Torchic is the worst of the worst. Fire-types are always the worst starters and Torchic is by far the worst of the Fire-starters.
Actually I don't even hate Torchic itself. But Combusken and Blaziken just absolutely ruin it.
Ugh, no... Emboar line is the worst fire starter line ever made imo, and I still like it msotly ebcasue my opinion is I dont have any problem with any pokemon in terms of there look. Also Blaziken is a powerhouse compared to some of the other starters.
