Wait this makes no sense, you don't start with Infernape wtf.
But seriously this is still objectively false because Charizard.
And no, charizard is not the best. He has decent special attack, no bulk and okay speed.
On the other hand, Infernape fills many roles, can learn many more moves, has good special attack and attack and great speed, with bad defences but he doesn't need em anyway. --- "Servant woman, bring me a drying cloth at once!" - Vegeta to Bulma
