If I get my Growlithe up to level 48, rare candy it, and then use a fire stone, will the Arcanine know Flamethrower and ExtremeSpeed.
(I did this technique with my Nidorino and Nidoking, to get horn-attack and thrash.)
I don't know if the rare candy is necessary, but the reason I used it on Nidorino is beacause it reverts the Pokémon's XP to '0' of the particular level.
Will this work, and I the rare candy necessary?
(EDIT: If any breeding experts read this, can someone suggest what Pokémon to use to breed Flamethrower, and possibly agility and flare blitz)
