C/D: Talonflame would have been way better with Normal/Flying

The lack of Flare Blitz hardly matters; most of the time, it'll usually be spamming Brave Bird.

D. Losing stab on Flareblitz makes it much harder to hurt things.

A properly timed fighting type move would destroy it, but other than that, it would be significantly better.

Without Flare Blitz or Brave Bird, TalonFlame can't be anything.

To all those saying about how it loses Flare Blitz and loses a good deal of utility, do you even read the OP? OP said that if movepool stays the same. <_<

It'd certainly require Uber testing, as noted. It's already a massive threat thanks to having one of the strongest priority attacks in the entire game, and Priority Roost backed by Normal type as the secondary is pretty jokey. Now with it being significantly less susceptible to Stealth Rock very little could threaten it.

I don't really hit anyone unless the need arises. If the need arises, though, I'm not about to hesitate just because they have boobs.
