Fanta was one of the Hoenn starters stolen from the lab of Professors Hemlock and Spruce. He was rescued by Pearl, Luca, and Miguel from the Team Nasty hideout in Portobello Port, and subsequently became Pearl's "official" starter Pokémon. As a Torchic, Fanta was turned into a Shadow Pokémon by Team Nasty, but after extensive training and bonding, his heart was opened once again by the mythical Pokémon Shaymin at the Shrine of Gratitude. Immediately after being cleansed of Shadow Energy, Fanta evolved into a Combusken. He is now very wary of anything that interferes with his mind, and has a vendetta against Team Nasty.
