So I'm breeding an iron fist chimchar with em's Fire punch, thunder punch and assist as he evolves I'mma probably replace assist with Mach punch and put power up punch for the fourth move to take full advantage of his ability, but my question is what's the best nature for him? And whats a good hold item for him with this moveset?:)

Blaze is better for boosting Flare Blitz.
Yeah but blaze hardly ever gets activated, and iron fist is active in every battle...
if I get a male emboar with reckless and breed it with a regular female chimchar, will the new chimchars have iron fist?
No. (filler)

Well if you're running Iron Fist,

Infernape @ Life Orb
Ability: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 HP / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Fire Punch
- Close Combat
- Mach Punch
- Thunder Punch

Close Combat is mandatory, as it is Infernape's strongest Fighting STAB move and allows it to hit Pokemon that are hit neutrally for some solid damage.
Mach Punch is extremely useful for revenge killing threats such as +1 Mega Gyarados, +1 Mega Tyranitar and Bisharp, as well as letting Infernape avoid a potential Speed tie with Terrakion and other base 108 Speed Pokemon.
Thunder Punch lets Infernape handle many otherwise hard checks on the switch-in, such as Talonflame, Azumarill, Gyarados, and Mega Charizard Y.
Fire Punch weaker than Flare Blitz, but it allows Infernape to stick around for longer due to lack of recoil, and is also boosted by Iron Fist

Nature and EV spread:
Max Attack and Speed for outspeeding and landing a heavy hit on many Pokémon. Really not much else to say.
