Are they holding an everstone? Some pok'emon that you start with evolve at diffrent levels. Chikorita is one that evolves I think at level 18. Torchik should have evolved at 16.

Additionally if you put them in Daycare they won't evolve either, or if you press B while they evolve they won't.

LRM, you're a tidge off. Torchic evolves at lvl 14.

Did you press the B button while they were evolving? Doing so stops the evolution.

Oh, right, that's the problem. Do you have the National Dex in FireRed (IE, have beaten the Elite Four, fixed Celio's Machine, and gotten 60 Pokemon in your pokedex)? If not, then no, they won't evolve, period.

Chickorita evolves at 16. Torchick too.

And by the way, you cant even get Torchic and Chickorita in FireRed before you get the dex, only if the Pokemon are hacked.

Oh yeah, I remember that. Yes, you need the National Dex - which means that you must have hacked the Torchic and Chikorita into the game.
This happens to normal Pokemon too - it happened to my Golbat, and since Crobat isn't a Kanto Pokemon, it stuck as a Golbat until I got the Nat'l Dex. After that it evolved as normal. So yeah, get the National Dex or else you're stuck with those two.

Did it strike you when on the status bar, the Pokemon's number was "???", it wouldn't evolve or something else odd was going on? (Ok, that sounded grammatically weird.)

But if he hasn't got the National Dex he can't get Torchic or Chikorita unless he used AR. So that doesn't solve the "not-evolving" problem.
So my question is: Big Peter, did you use hacking devices such as Action Replay or Gameshark? If yes, the problem will be solved.

What if he traded them from another FRLG game? Would that work?

I'm pretty sure if he hasn't gotten the National Dex the only way to get them is by hacking.
My friend hacked on LG to get Rayquaza & he couldn't get the National Dex after beating the E4, so he had to restart his game.

No. It would just say: "This Pokémon can't be traded yet"

Thats right. I tried to trade over a Balbusaur egg to my FireRed and it wouldn't let me do it since I didn't have the National Pok'eDex.
