I'm trying to decide if I should use an infernape or an arcanine as a physical fire type sweeper for my team, can someone help me out? A move pool for the Pokemon would also be great, thx!

Infernape with the Iron Fist ability is a great physical fire type sweeper, and I think it's a better one than Arcanine. Infernape has an attack stat of 104, and Arcanine has a higher attack stat of 110, but Infernape's speed of 108 beats Arcanine's of 95.

Iron Fist
@Life Orb
Jolly - 252 atk / 252 spd / 4 HP
-Fire Punch
-Thunder Punch
-Mach Punch
-Swords Dance / U-Turn

Iron Fist is essential to boost those punching moves. Go with Swords Dance to increase attack for even more damage, or U-Turn to scout or make a quick escape in an emergency.

However, if you do want to use Arcanine, here's a good set.

@Choice Band
Jolly - 252 atk / 252 spd / 4 HP
- Extreme Speed
- Flare Blitz
- Close Combat
- Wild Charge

Hope I helped!
