It's...interesting. :S

This is actually a pretty typical moveset among beginners. However, there are many slips. For one, you have three Fire-type attacks and a Normal-type attack. What would happen if you you went up against a Rock-type? Yeah, you're screwed. You need different attacks to suit your stats.

Flamethrower is potent and reliable, so keep it. If you really want to keep Rock Climb, then go ahead. It's got less-than-desired Accuracy, but it's strong, and can confuse the foe. If you want to get rid of it, then put Return on it for a Normal-type alternative or Psychic (TM29) for great coverage.

For two other attacks, there are a few options. Faint Attack is a pretty good Dark-type attack. Thunderpunch rids a major weakness. A Fighting-type attack (Brick Break, Cross Chop, etc) can prove useful against the aforementioned Rock-types; Iron Tail can also cover these Rock-types. Will-O-Wisp is great for compensating for low Defense stat on Magmar; There are countless options!

Hope I helped!

For two other

You don't need 3 fire type moves. If I had Golem you would be toast. Maybe Fire Punch, Thunder Punch, High Jump Kick, and Rockslide

i dont think magmar gets hi jump kick any way i think this is better

modest/quiet 252 sp.atk 252 spd 4 hp abillity/flame body or flash fire i would prefer flame body but ur choice flash fire can be used but it dosn't matter



lava plume (STAB high chance of burn and hits 2 pokemon in double battle good with a flash fire team mate

focus blast (bad accuracy but makes up for it in power and coverage it can also lower sp.def)

hidden power ice, grass,water(good move decent power and can be unpredictabul if they dont know what type it is water for example is very helpful aganisist other fire types grass for rock and ground ice for flying dragon ground types

substitute/heal bell (heal bell to get rid of status like poisen and stuff substitute for protecting yourself from dangourus attacks but really its to block an attack and hit back harder

Here's mine:

  • Flamethrower
  • Psychic
  • Confuse Ray
  • Iron Tail

Ability: Flame Body
Holding: Charcoal

It works really well.

Don't evolve it!
