PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I'm asking because, even with incineroar's moveset question on the pokedex, I have my own way of doing things, so I'm just wondering which is better. Though I'm asking so I have guidance on my battle style. So which move is better, Throat Chop or Fire Fang?

It depends on the format, the item, the stat spread, and the other three moves.

Well, when not thinking about your other moves, Throat Chop would be the better move because it gives STAB, has a higher base-power, and when looking at Incineroar's 4 weaknesses: Water, Fighting, Ground, and Rock, Throat Chop will be normal-effective against 3 out of 4, whereas Fire Fang is only normal-effective again 2 out the 4 (where each move-type is not effective to 0 out of the 4).

However, as you level up Incineroar, I recommend having both a stronger Dark-type and Fire-type move such as Darkest Lariat and Fire Punch. You should still have both a Fire and Dark type move in Incineroar's move-set in my opinion.

Your Choice! Hope I helped! :)
