Flare blitz or Fire punch on HA Chimchar??

#1TurtleatlawPosted 12/27/2013 10:28:21 PM
Hey guys. I'm breeding HA Chimchars at the moment, and am wondering if I should go with flare blitz or fire punch? flare blitz still has more power even with boosted fire punch. But at least with fire punch there's no recoil, and Infernape is already pretty frail ...

Infernape only has 2 good moves that make use of iron fist: mach punch and thunder punch

Pretty much any move that would be used on him would obliterate him, so you might as well put out as much damage as possible before that happens

What about power up punch?

Also, isn't recoil from flare blitz a concern?

I believe the correct answer is Overheat.

Meh, I wouldn't pick power-up punch over CC.

He's too frail to give up OHKOing things before stat boosts

this

power up punch is overrated because he'll just get 1shot due to poor bulk

if anything you could just bring him in and force a switch and Swords Dance and get a larger boost

Cool! Thanks for all the advice guys!

I'm on my way to a competitive Infernape!

FYI, I have a handful of HA (Iron Fist) Chimchars after the breeding
Let me know if any of you want one
