Biography
Ash's Fletchinder was revealed in the 2nd opening and 2nd ending of the XY anime in Japan. Ash's Fletchling evolved into Ash's Fletchinder during a battle against Moria's Talonflame.

Evolving into Fletchinder

Moria challenged Ash Ketchum to a sky battle and initially chose Ash's Fletchling to battle her but Moria's Talonflame thought it was too weak to battle against and wanted to battle Ash's Hawlucha instead. Ash Ketchum made a deal with her that if Ash's Hawlucha defeated her Fiarrow, that Ash's Fletchling could battle it also. Moria ended up winning that match and Ash's Hawlucha was defeated. Not long after though, Moria's Talonflame was captured by Rocket Gang and with the assistance of Ash's Fletchling, it was set free.

Moria's Talonflame wanted to battle Ash's Fletchling after the events of Rocket Gang's interference proved to it that Ash's Fletchling was a strong opponent despite its initial impression. Moria's Talonflame ended up being defeated after Ash's Fletchling evolved into Ash's Fletchinder during the battle.

Gym Battle VS Valerie

During the Gym battle against Ash Ketchum, it faced off against Ash's Fletchinder in the first match up. Valerie talked to her Sylveon in Pokémon language and it was able to more or less understand what she wanted to do. Valerie's Sylveon being a Fairy type is delicate but strong. It used its tail ribbons to its advantage during the battle to capture Ash's Fletchinder from moving about but he countered that but charging right into Sylveon with Flame Charge. The battle came to a climax when the two charged at each other with Giga Impact and Steel Wing but Ash's Fletchinder came out victorious and knocked out Valerie's Sylveon to win the first match-up.

After defeating Valerie's Sylveon, it was matched up with Valerie's Spritzee. The match was dominated by Valerie's Spritzee Trick Room. Ash Ketchum kept instructing Fletchinder to use Flame Charge despite being under Trick Room's effects which actually has the opposite effect and lowers its speed. Ash's Fletchinder kept enduring attacks until the effects of Trick Room had warn off and he hoped that he could settle the match in one go but unfortunately the strategy didn't pay off as Valerie's Spritzee endured the Giga Impact and Steel Wing and knocked out Fletchinder with a Moon Blast.

Ash's Talonflame is the evolved form of Ash's Fletchinder. It evolved during a battle against Moltres at Mount Ardor. An attack was heading towards Ash Ketchum and the others and in a burst of adrenaline to go protect them, it also triggered it to evolve.
