What would make Flareon playable...

#1kitsunesdPosted 12/2/2012 2:40:33 PM
Flareon has basically been shafted every new generation with his tiny movepool. What would it take to make him useable in the metagame... Maybe if he just had Arcanine's movepool he'd be a little bit better? Maybe a different dream world ability? Could be fun if he got Huge Power... nearly 800 attack all the time with maxed ev's + positive boosting nature...would that do it? I know this will probably never happen, but what would you do to make him actually good?

If it was faster.

He needs to have his base stats redone. And he needs a strong stab move.

Ruby/Sapphire remakes will be part of 6th gen on 3DS. If not, I'll close my account.

Give it access to Technician and a physical Fire-type priority move

It needs better stats and better moves. The entire Eevee family could benefit from the same thing, but a few of them are obviously good enough as they are right now.
want some funeral to go with that cake?

Make his ability Contrary. Then give him Spore and V-Create.

Give him Flare Blitz or swap his Atk with his Sp.Atk.
If everyone was right who'd be the gigalomaniac? "Whose eyes are those eyes?"

A few minor adjustments to its movepool are in order. Agility, Blaze Kick, Shadow Claw, and Close Combat sounds about right.

Flareon has Flame Charge to take care of speed issues, but it still needs an additonal reliable physical Fire STAB and other moves.

Essentially his ownly downfall is his poor movepool matched up to an amazing attack stat. If he had flare blitz he would ruin defenses but his speed is also low.

While were on that I also think Sudowoodo deserves head smash.
