Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Would this activate Arcanine's ability?

If He has the ability justified, and I use the move beat up on him, will it raise his attack for each pokemon attacking? That would send his attack through the roof, with very little damage.

The answer is yes. It will raise attack by one stage for each hit from Beat Up. I see this on Lucario, a Pokemon that resists Beat Up.

I was thinking lucario, but he's too frail. Beat up wouldn't kill him, everything else would.
How about Cobalion then?
For anyone who wants it, here is a source confirming Trachy's answer.
