Well, Overheat has 130 power, 90 accuracy, and only 5 PP. Flamethrower has 90 power, 100 accuracy, and 15 PP. Overheat lowers your Special Attack by 2 stages after attacking, whereas Flamethrower has a 10% chance of burning your opponent. These moves are both Fire-type and in the Special category. If you want more power, go with Overheat. But, if you want to burn the competition, I'd go with Flamethrower.

If Overheat was used as a Z-move, its power will be 195 as Inferno Overdrive. If Flamethrower was used as a Z-move, its power will be 175 as Inferno Overdrive.
Thanks! I'll be sure to use Flamethrower then!
Wise choice, mein friend.
