Flareon isn't getting Flare Blitz

Instead, it'll get Amnesia and Calm Mind and become an OU Special Wall.

Flareon doesn't really need a recoil move anyway, not with that HP and Speed. Between that and its high Attack, Flare Blitz is suicide. What Flareon really wants is Blaze Kick.

I was hoping it would get a Fire version of Extremespeed. Thats about the only thing that could save it.

Makes sense when you look at Jolteon and Double Kick.

I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.

Flareon just sucks period. Just make it a sp atker n give it quick attack for its high atk. Done

Wow... there are people who still believe Flareon would be salvageable if it gained Flare Blitz?
Entei got Flare Blitz and ExtremeSpeed and has much more bulk and speed than Flareon (it has less attack power, though 361 isn't that much weaker than 394), and yet, it got nowhere. Why would Flareon fare any better?


This is almost as stupid as believing that Charizard would rampage through the top tiers if Stealth Rock didn't exist. <_<

It's not about making Flareon "viable."

It's about why the hell doesn't Flareon learn Flare Blitz?

If no one cares about making Flareon "viable", why should they care about its movepool?
But if you want an actual answer, "Game Freak just hates it" is the most accurate one I can give you.
Just like they hate Farfetch'd, Delibird, Luvdisc, Spinda, Magcargo...

Anybody else think it would be awesome if GF decided to finally show some love to the old Pokemon that have gotten shafted and left in the cold for so long...?

Also, while I'm on the subject of Pokemon left in the cold and not getting any love, Jynx should get an evolution that is reminiscent of Queen Tyr'Ahnee (Looney Tunes Martian Queen)...
