I'd recommend leech life over lunge (as this is a bulky set) and power whip over crunch (for fire and rock types)
You mean Water and Rock types? :P

This is my first post so try not to judge.

Centiskorch @ Leftovers
Ability:
White Smoke - if you do not want your stats to get lowered (lose your Coil)
Flash Fire - immunity to Fire + 50% Attack boost if hit
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Def/SpD/Spe

-Coil - better version of Bulk Up. Accuracy can help with Inferno.

-Inferno - for damage and mostly burn. Accuracy boosted by Coil + STAB. Special Attack isn't too bad.

-Fire Lash - damage + STAB + Defense lowering for more damage. Not too bad for G-Max Centiferno.

-Flare Blitz/ Burn Up / Bug or Grass type move / Thunder Fang / anything you like
Flare Blitz- damage + STAB
Best move that it can learn for G-Max Centiferno
Burn Up - to reduce weakness but also reduces resistance. Flash Fire still blocks Fire. Damage + STAB
Bug for STAB
Grass for coverage
Thunder Fang for coverage + effects

Centiskorch @ Life Orb / Leftovers
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Flame Body

-Crunch / Thunder Fang
-Fire Lash
-Leech Life
-Knock Off / Scald

I was torn between Crunch and Knock Off; both offer coverage and have their uses, but I feel that a combo of Thunder Fang/Scald would provide more coverage with the full set of skills. Thoughts?

Scald simply won't be doing enough damage with it's relatively low Sp. Atk, even it is super effective. I'd go Power Whip to make use of it's high Attack, and covers ground, rock and water.

For Physical Set, swap Flare Blitz for Fire Lash. Fire Lash has 80 BP, witch is acceptable, plus 100% chance to lower the opponent's defense stat. Swap Crunch for Power Whip too. Power Whip covers two very common types that Centiskortch is weak to- Rock and Water.

Centiskorch @ Silver Powder
Ability: Flame Body
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Def

  • Fire Lash
  • Leech Life
  • Coil
  • Power Whip

Use with a cherim that knows sunny day. Fire lash's power will be doubled by sunny day + flower gift. Leech life's power will be boosted by 50% and it will heal centiskorch. Coil is to boost it's low defense. Power whip is coverage.

Gen 8 ZU
Centiskorch
Centiskorch @ Throat Spray
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 248 HP / 252 SpA / 8 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Fire Blast / Flamethrower
- Bug Buzz
- Scald
- Scorching Sands

Yes, I know Coil Centiskorch is better, but no one expects Throat Spray Centiskorch. Fire Blast is strong STAB. You could use Flamethrower instead of Fire Blast if you want your Fire STAB to be accurate. Bug Buzz is STAB and activates Throat Spray. Scald and Scorching Sands are there for coverage.
