Both are strong and have decent movepools but who is the better fire sweeper?

Charizard the first fire type and one of the top three best starters. It has high speed and special attack and exceptible attack to make him an awesome sweeper. He also has a great move pool.

Magmorter has high S.defense and S.attack making a good tank. he also has a decent move pool. also he has a pretty good ability.


Charizard is cursed with a 4x weakness to stealth rock. Charizard has high special attack but his best moves are physical.

Magmoter when I said high S.def I meant in comparison to his other stats he has bad defense so flame body is hard to take effect especially with earthquake being immune to flame body.

So I would say Charizard is the best.

Charizard. Don't you ever hink any different. Besides, Magmortar is fairly slow. It doesn't make a good sweeper.

I think Charizard, as it has a powerful attack stat and as it it part flying type, whereas magmortar would get beaten up by a ground type, Charizard has good chance of being imune to some attacks, and could use flying type moves to pound the opponant, while Magmortar flails around trying to dodge with its low speed stat. And with a powerful attack stat, a fire type could clobber most pokemon, with only a few exeptions, like in Charizards case, electric, water and dragon types.

You forgotten charizards 4 times weakness to rock!
Charizard is pretty obvious just make sure they don't set up stealth rock
