I recently started using Choice Band Cinccino but it can’t really hit hard like the rest of my team:
So I realised that I didn’t have any good Fighting or Fire type Pokemon to check threats like Ferrothorn, Swords Dance Scizor, Hydreigon and Bisharp.
Zoroark has Flamethrower and Salamence has Fire Fang, but Scizor with +2 Attack after one Swords Dance can OHKO them both.
Hazards break the Focus Sash on Salamence and Zoroark, so Bullet Ounch will OHKO them.
So, I decided to replace cinccino with Infernape, because bullet punch won’t be very effective against it. I use it with the set:
But when I looked up Infernape on Smogon, I realised it was only in the UU Tier
So is Infernape useful for my team?
And should I replace Swords Dance with Mach Punch?
