Yes, a special attacking Blaziken is possible, but it is less effective than a physical attacking Blaziken, in my opinion. Either way, here's a special attacking Blaziken set I created on Pokemon Showdown:

Blaziken @ Leftovers/Blazikenite
Ability: Speed Boost (If possible)
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Overheat
- Focus Blast
- Vacuum Wave/Will-O-Wisp
- Protect

In terms of moveset for a special Blaziken, there aren't many options. If you're using an in game team, I think it'd be easier for you to just try and replace Vacuum Wave with any filler move you want, like Will-O-Wisp, since you have to have a Generation 4 Blaziken to get it to learn Vacuum Wave.

EDIT: My bad, you can't have Vacuum Wave on a Speed Boost Blaziken, unless you mega evolve it. Good luck on your special attack team!

Hope I helped! :)

Thanks this helps a ton whays better blazikenite or leftovers cause I have speed boost blaziken
Leftovers is usually a poor item for a sweeper like Blaziken, due to comparatively low defenses and lower health pool.  It just doesn't have the staying power to get the benefit of the health restore.
