And if Mods/Editor/Experts don't mind, maybe add sprites?
Give Blaziken Flare Blitz instead of Blaze Kick.
Take out Take Down for a STAB move,like Hammer Arm,Superpower or Brick Break.
The reason why Emboar has Take Down is because he's a suicide sweeper.
did you get the emboar from me? i posted a team yesterday with a suicide emboar.
No, thats a typical Reckless Emboar set.
Just a little thing you might want to try to piss others off and make your team better.
Have you ever considered jacking up Emboar to be a Heat Rock + Sunny Day pokemon?
If so, you could run Solar Power on Zard, and Eruption + Scarf on Typhlosion.

A Mono-Fire starter team is not such a good idea, but I guess you can give it a Try.


Since its a Special sweeper, you want to cover as much types as possible. I recommend to replace Dragon Pulse, a move that only covers Dragon types or Ominous Wind, a move that only covers 2 types with Hidden Power Grass for coverage against 5 types, including Rock types.


Standard set, Replace Wise Glasses with a Choice Item or a Life Orb. If you are running Life Orb, switch the Nature to Timid. If you decide to stay with Modest, run Choice Scarf instead.


I suggest to replace Blaze Kick with Flare Blitz, because you want to strike hard with Blaziken. Replace Earthquake with either Swords Dance or ThunderPunch for extra Power or Water Coverage(not necessary)


Again, it is a standard Infernape so no suggestions.


Take Down has poor coverage, so replace is with Brick Break for STAB. The rest is standard.

Since its a suicide sweeper, give it a Life Orb for Max strength.
