Blaziken @Leftovers
Adamant
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
-Sky Uppercut
-Rock Slide
-Overheat
-Sky Uppercut

This is the best set for in-game.

Other honorable mentions are Houndoom, Charizard, Arcanine, and Typhlosion. Yep, there aren't many good Fire types in the game.

no entei i don't want ubers.

entei isnt an uber. its a ledgend. if you consider entei upber you consider the regis uber, metagross, salamence, dragonite, tyranitar, the ledgendary bires and the rest of the dogs uber. they arent uber. they are ledgends. uber pokemon are stuff like rayquaza, mewtwo, ho-oh, lugia. oh and wobbufett

what about flamethrower in place of overheat? I don't really like overheat.

Look at the math:

Overheat: 140 + 70 = 210
Flamethrower: 95 + 95 = 190

2 Overheats are stronger than 2 Flamethrowers. And I can assure you that you'll never use a Fire attack three times in a row without switching out.

I'd prefer Houndoom or Blaziken, Ninetales isn't bad either, IMO

Ninetales saved me today in Battle Factory... Lol Magmar is the l337 h4x05! Macgargo is another awesome one...He's another fire who helped me in the Factory...

I'd say either Blaziken for its versatility, or Charizard because, well, he just emanates coolness.

lol Flareon and Magcargo both suck.

Ninetales is okay, but it's too limited.

Blaziken isn't versatile. TBH, that's the Fire type's problem. They're weak to three of the most common attacks in the game, Surf, Earthquake and Rock Slide, and are extremely limited movepool wise. Houndoom, Charizard and Blaziken are the best and only real usable ones; Doom and Zard can only work with 1 moveset. That's pretty abysmal. Blaziken can CB or SubRev, but that's no great shakes; I'd sooner SubRev with Hera and SkarmBliss Counter with Salamence, Gengar or Boah.

The only really usable fire types are Moltres, Charizard, Houndoom, Blaziken and Arcanine. Ninetales, Camerupt, Typhlosion, Rapidash, Entei and Magmar just barely cut it for competitive play. Ho-oh isn't mentioned since it's considered uber, and even in the uber environment it isn't really used that much. It works pretty well with Groudon however.

And what the deuce are those noobs doing suggesting Blast Burn? OMG ITZ POWERFUL U MUST USE IT. I blame the anime for producing fans that think sticking four offensive moves of the same type on a pokemon is good. Ash deserves to get murdered, because he's just plain stupid. Rant over.

CAMERUPT, by far...

Fireblast
Earthquake
Rockslide
Sandstorm/Rest(w/chestoberry)/Bodyslam

Blastburn sucks hard. @*%$#!!! to all you Blastburn users.

Lol, Camerupt is NOT very good.
Also, Sandstorm sucks on almost ALL Pokemon.
And don't be mean to all the other people who use Blast Burn. Sure, it may be a crappy move, but if they want to use then they can use it.

Frost Nova pretty much covers the whole of my list, but I like Typhlosion and Entei, even if they aren't very good in battle. Although Entei can be good as a SunnyBeamer.

Exploding camels are always fun.

Typhlosion's pretty deadly with Sunny Day and a Petaya Berry btw. I like the Johto starters a lot. Well, not so much Feraligatr, but they look nice.

What about torkoal? When it has protect/iron defense it can be amazing, i use it against slakings, when they are to lazy to attack I use a good fire attack/iron defence, then when they attack I use protect. I have to admit it can be a bit crappy at times though...

Reno
23rd December 2006, 2:22 PM
torkoal is terrible. there are much better physical walls out there. to give it some pros, the thing can curse well. that combined with body slam, overheat, and explosion is a good combo.
