When dealing with Pokemon, it's good to use a different type of move for each slot; in other words, for different type moves. Although, some people might have more than one STAB move, or any move type in their move slots.

Blaziken can learn: Fire, Fighting, Flying, and Normal attacking moves leveling up.

Without TM, you can definitely have 2 Fire moves in your move slot: Flame Charge and Blaze Kick; while the other 2 can be Sky Uppercut and Brave Bird - normally because most people wouldn't care about slash.

But, you might want to use HM's/TM's to increase move variety, making you limited to one choice - Blaze Kick. Blaze Kick is a much better fire move to go with because your Blaziken can possibly have the hidden ability speed boost; Althought it's mega will definitely have speed boost - making flame charge somewhat pointless.

Blaziken has great speed already, and a lot of attack. It all depends on your battling style. If you want to finish your opponents off quickly, choose Blaze Kick > Flame Charge (a popular battle style). But, if your a strategic player who likes to think about battle - and out-speed the other Pokemon, go with flame charge.

In the end, it's completely your choice. In my opinion, I would choose Blaze Kick because my blaziken knows speed boost, plus it's mega is a definite speed boost (2 things in one move). Your Choice! Hope I helped! :)

You really only want one Fire type move so you can have room for a Fighting type move and coverage. We have three choices: Flame Charge, Flare Blitz and Blaze Kick.

Blaziken and its Mega get Speed Boost, which makes Flame Charge useless. Flare Blitz is widely considered to be the best choice because it gets OHKOs with one Swords Dance. If you don't like the recoil, Blaze Kick is a good option, but the power drop is noticeable.

Here is one of the most well-known and effective Blaziken sets:
Blaziken @ Life Orb / Blazikenite
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Flare Blitz
- High Jump Kick
- Stone Edge
