So, I'm wondering if I should teach blaziken Fire Punch or I should stick with brick break?

What do you want to do with this Blaziken? Do you want to battle other people, the Battle Frontier, or in-game trainers?
If you want the accuracy then yes. If you want power then stick with Blaze Kick
@M1xed-Chocolate Of course no, Blaze kick has higher power and also could increase critical hit rate.
It could also burn opponent.
Blaze Kick or Flare Blitz>Fire Punch
Flare blitz doesn't exist in gen 3.

Not a that good idea for Fire Punch when you could use other good fire type moves such as Blaze Kick, which has a much higher power and you could just learn it from evolution.
Break brick is unneeded too seems
you could learn Hi-Jump kick which deal much more damage and also Sky Uppercut whichncould hit Pokemon when they are bounced.

However, I don’t know what format are you playing, but I’ll still say that no Fire Punch nor Break Brick.

Good Set for Blaziken:
Blaziken @ Leftovers
Ability: Speed Boost / Blaze
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Protect / Sword dance / Earthquake
- Blaze Kick
- Brave Bird
- High Jump Kick
Seems you are going to run a psychical blaziken, these move will
definitely helps a lot.
Protect if you are using a HA Blaziken, if not, use Earthquake.
Sword dance good for two of the abilities, but if in-game, use earthquake.
Hope it helps!

The question is tagged "gen-3". Brave bird doesn't exist, and Blaziken can't have speed boost or high jump kick in gen 3.
Also, Blaze Kick is special in gen 3.
I think the gen 3 tag is because blaziken is generation 3.
So bad he didn’t tells the format

It depends on what you’re looking for. If you want accuracy, use Flamethrower or Fire Punch, since all fire moves are special in Gen 3. If you would prefer extra effects to accuracy, go with Blaze Kick. It has a 1/8 critical hit chance and a 10% chance to burn (though the burn chance is the same for Flamethrower and Fire Punch as well, so I’m mostly talking about the increased crit chance). Brick Break is a good move, and I see no use in replacing it besides if you want to use Sky Uppercut.

I would try a moveset of Brick Break, Flamethrower, Earthquake, and Return/Rock Tomb, personally. I think you should keep Brick Break since it’s STAB. Flamethrower is STAB, and even though it doesn’t have the increased crit chance, I would choose it over Blaze Kick for the accuracy. If you can’t teach it Flamethrower, I would recommend Fire Punch, unless you really want the increased chance of getting a crit.

Hope this helps! :)
