Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Infernape for my team?

1 vote

I just got a Chimchar from the GTS and I wonder if it will be useful for my team.
I have not beaten the elite four yet(Platinum).
My team is:

Torterra, Vaporeon, Garchomp, Staraptor, Lucario, Gengar.

Yes. Infernape would revolutionise your teams coverage by drastic measures.

Infernape would suite your team well, as you don't have a Fire or
Fighting type already. Infernape can come very handy against the
Champions Pokemon with great a movepool and base stats to boost his
usefulness. I know this is Ingame, but Infernape wouldn't be in OU
for no reason!

A good set would be: (Of course hoping that you have enough potions to run this set well)

  • Close Combat
  • Flare Blitz
  • Earthquake
  • Bulk Up

This nice ingame set needs potions, but will sweep your opponent easily.

I chose Chimchar as my starter when I was playing Platinum, and I have to say that it is a must have on any ingame team.

It's a good moveset but I already used tm Earthquake on garchomp :P
And with the new Dream World abilities on B/W (2), Iron Fist would be useful, because now Thunder Punch and Fire Punch can do alot mor damage. STAB, Super-Effective, and a Iron Fist Ability would make Fire Punch perfect for Infernape. :)
