Does anyone else hope Flareon gets buffed this gen?

One of the coolest Eevee evolutions IMO, needs to be done proper justice this time around

But it doesn't have a shell to smash.

It should get Flare Blitz and superpower should be moved onto it's natural learnset. XD

I love all the eevee evos. Even if they aren't the best I still have one of each that's EV trained. I've already bred the eevee that shall be a Sylveon.

Umbreon is my best bro, though. Guy's a freaking tank.

I say give it a signature move. 85 base power physical Fire attack that raises Speed.

Basically a suped-up Flame Charge.

Because with Flare Blitz it's still slow as hell and easily felled by physical attacks. This would give it a good physical STAB and fix the Speed issue.

Nope. It should stay in Jolteon's shadow like it belongs!

...It's in the shadow of every Eeveelution, dude. >_>

Yeah, Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Espeon overshadow it the most, but every single one is better than Flareon. If Flareon improved a bit...it would still be worse than Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Espeon.

Flareon suffers the fate of being a plain Fire type unfortunately. Name one good Fire type that isn't dual typed.
