Scarf.

Chandelure's Sp.Att is already high enough to 1-2HKO most Pokemon with a super effective move. It's Speed however, is average.

In my Opinion, neither. I would go for either a Life Orb or an Expert Belt because Switching in and out with Chandelure is not a good idea with it's 2x weakness to Spikes and Stealth Rock.

Actually scarf is good, chandy isn't fast and the extra speed could help and guarantee a KO. After greninja faints one of your Pokemon with a water or ice type move, most would stay in to KO chandy but being scarfed u can outsped and go for the OHKO.
Chandelure is used mostly for it's diverse sweeping ability, Choice Scarf ruins that.
Lol it doesn't trust me i use chandy a lot
Scarf doesn't ruin it. Plus, if you run Trick and know when to use it it can work in your favor.

In my opinion you should go with a Choice Scarf.
Reasons being:

  • Chandy has a lot of power already and needs the speed way more.

My second reason includes a move you don't have but maybe consider it.

  • Psychic -> Trick, you can trick a scarf onto an opponents Pokemon, which can mess up their tactic.
