now we can use both so I feel conflicted which one is a better fire type attacker

Pls give set too

Entei! The big boi legendary wins this one hands down
Eruption scarf Entei is probably pretty good
@max Would you like to explain why?
@Kyogre Entei's special attack is pretty low, and holding choice scarf means it takes damage from stealth rock.
Didn’t say it was perfect but it’s still pretty good if used as a lead
No lead is perfect, but this Entei is worse than many other leads.

Cinderace. It almost seems unfair to compare the two. Cinderace is much faster and has an assortment of coverage options in combination with a STAB boost for every single move. On the other hand, Entei's movepool is pretty lackluster, with just a few coverage options and Howl being its only way to boost its Attack. There is no reason whatsoever to justify using Entei over Cinderace.

Cinderace @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Libero
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Pyro Ball
- U-turn
- High Jump Kick
- Sucker Punch
The boots are a must have, but as far as the moves go, Cinderace has so many other options as mentioned. Gunk Shot to easily take down fairies like Clefable or Tapu Fini, Zen Headbutt to 2HKO Toxapex, or you could even go for a Bulk Up set at the cost of one of your coverage moves.
