Starting out by saying I love Gigavolt Havok animation with Arcanine. That being said this build catches most people off guard. As he can take a hit from a physical atacker on a switch in. If you lead with overheat you can surprise most opponents with your electric Z-move. Snarl is great to debug Sp. Attackers and bypasses substitute’s with good neutral coverage. Extreme speed is good for hitting first and getting around fake out or other slower priority moves.
They want me in Smash!?!
