He's already ridiculously overpowered, would close combat really be that big of a deal?

If he's already ridiculously overpowered, why does he need close combat?

Because to me, it looks like Blaziken isn't the type to execute a series of punches wildly. He seems like the type of fighter who kicks mainly with control.

Well, I don't know, maybe Blaziken has a weak upper body, so doesn't chose to throw punches. His lower body compensates that flaw and can kick really hard. Hence Hi Jump Kick as his fighting move of choice and strongest.

Why doesn't Garchomp learn Dragon Dance?
Why does Venusaur not learn Sludge Wave?
Why isn't Mismagius a Fairy type?

Because Game Freak.
Can't think of anything

But Blaziken can learn:
Fire Punch
Sky Uppercut (If that counts)
Power-up Punch
ThunderPunch
Focus Punch
Mega Punch
Dynamic Punch

Maybe Gamefreak just didn't think of giving it Close Combat.
