This is probably not the most informed answer, but from what I know Blaziken is better for online battles. I also like Blaziken a little more personally. Blaziken also is Fighting AND Fire, while Cinderace is only fire. Blaziken also has more diverse and just plain more moves to choose from. The differences are subtle though, so it really does come down to personal preference. If it was me, though, I would go with Blaziken.

Cinderace's typing can change with the ability Libero.
thank you
Cinderace is definitely better most of the time. Blaziken has a niche because of Speed Boost, but Cinderace is much better overall, esspecially as a dynamax sweeper. Libero > Speed Boost most of the time.

I think you should use Cinderace, because of Libero it can change its type, which can make it really hard to counter. Also, it is a pure fire type (at first) and Blaziken is a Fire-and-FIghting type, which means it has more weaknesses. But I agree with Jake Charizard, it really comes down to personal preference.

Ability: Libero
EVs: 252 Attack / 252 Spe/4 HP

- Sucker Punch
- Acrobatics
- Iron Head

People say that it is trash, but I have won almost every battle, thanks to this Cinderace.

Give it Life Orb/Heavy-Duty Boots

Not trash, but could definitely be improved.
