Arcanine is a pokemon from one of my previous teams (sucked badly in the team) ,and I bred him and got an egg.It hatched and he knows these moves:

????? nature

Crunch (to be kept)
dig
flamethrower (to be kept)
aa

Are those moves good?
What nature is best?
What is a good ev spread for him?
Should I drop him for another fire type?

Thanks,

Yes, because you donít want to use Howl for only one attack. Iron Tail is an option to handle Rock types. Arcanine canít learn too many good physical moves (canít learn many special moves either).

ok,thanx,probably won't go with OH,though,as it is only good with a white herb,and there aren't many of those around........

No, Overheat is perfectly fine as physical Arcanine has no other Special Attacks and you probably wonít need to use OH more than once per battle.
