Adamant Nature

Leech Life is good but the Big Root makes it gain more so why Leftovers?
Because than you can only use leech life to heal rather than healing every turn. And big root may or may not heal more. Leftovers is much more consistent in general

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.

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.

Centiskorch (M) @ Big Root
Ability: Flash Fire
Bulky Physical Sweeper: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD / (+Atk, -SpA)
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Fire Lash
- Leech Life
- Power Whip
- Knock Off

Fire Lash lowers Defense and is STAB. Leech Life restores HP and with the Big Root it makes more. Power Whip covers up Water and Rock. Knock Off is more powerful if the target is holding a held item which powers up 65 to 97.5 BP.

Centiskorch @Leftovers
Ability: Flame Body
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/128 HP/128 Def

Fire Lash
Coil
Power Whip
Lunge

Explanation:

Fire Lash can lower target's Defense, as well as STAB. Coil can boost Attack, Defense and Accuracy at the same time. This can help you tank hits. Power Whip is Rock, Water and Ground coverage, all three weaknesses at once. Lunge is bug STAB as well as lower attack. Flame Body is nice to be used to cripple physical sweepers. Watch out for entry hazards, specially Stealth Rock. It is highly recommended to bring an Entry Hazard remover.
