From its beak, it expels embers that set the tall grass on fire. Then it pounces on the bewildered prey that pop out of the grass.
– Pokémon X Pokédex


When X/Y was released, Fletchinder had the longest English name of Pokemon. Previously there was a limit of 10 characters for Pokemon names (which is why Feraligatr isn’t “Feraligator”) but the newer games removed that limit. However, Sun/Moon introduced Crabominable, which has a longer name than Fletchinder.

Fletchinder was one of the few Pokemon not revealed prior to the release of X/Y. Fletchling and Talonflame were both revealed, and I thought it was a 2-stage evolution. I was surprised when my Fletchling evolved into a Pokemon I’ve never seen before!

Many of its Pokedex entries talk about Fletchinder eating prey (other Pokemon), such as:

  • “From its beak, it expels embers that set the tall grass on fire. Then it pounces on the bewildered prey that pop out of the grass.” – Omega Ruby
  • “From its beak, it fires embers at its prey. Once it has caught them, it grills them at high heat before feasting upon them.” – Sun
  • “It scatters embers in the tall grass. Then bug Pokémon, frightened by the flames, come flying out, and Fletchinder gobbles them up.” – Ultra Sun
  • Fletchinder is currently the only Fire/Flying Pokemon that can still evolve.

    Stat-wise, it has good speed, esp for a 2nd stage Pokemon. It also has pretty good Attack.
