We can't really give a good answer without knowing what the other 5 Pokémon are.
What are your other 5 Pokémon. What are your other 5 Pokémon’s movesets.
I think Carracosta would usually be worse assuming the rest of the team doesn't share any types with Carracosta or Chandelure. Samurott and Simipour are better water Pokemon, and Archeops is a better rock Pokemon.

I think Darmanitan is better than both Carracosta and Chandelure. Flare blitz at level 33 and 140 physical attack at level 35 is just not something every Pokemon has access to.

I would suggest chandelure as it is superior than carracosta in stats and the fire and ghost is an amazing typing for a black playthrough.

Flamethrower is a STAB,high base power move.

Pain Split is for gaining hp when its low
