I've got a level 44 Growlithe at the moment, and I'm debating what moves I should give it. At the moment it knows Flamethrower, Crunch, Heat Wave and Outrage. I'm also planning on Thunder Fang when I evolve it. However, I'm torn as to whether I should get Flare Blitz or not; I didn't realise the recoil was quite as bad as it is.

What would you recommend? (I'll probably only be using it in-game).

When you evolve it, take to the Move Relearner and give it ExtremeSpeed. Having priority is nice.

Yes. Personally I've found Flamethrower, Outrage, Thunder Fang, and ExtremeSpeed to be a great moveset for Arcanine.

Wild Charge > Thunder Fang

I hadn't even considered ExtremeSpeed. Is Flamethrower enough then? I wasn't sure whether it would have been worth taking the hit on recoil for a little more damage.

Get Flare Blitz. Just switch out or use potions when low on health.

Mostly it's just personal preference. Most people prefer Flare Blitz, but I find Flamethrower to be more than good enough, and I rather hate having two attacks with negative effects and prefer Outrage. Same reason I tend to stick with Thunder Fang instead of Wild Charge.

Ok, I'll be taking Flamethrower and Outrage - just need to decide the other two moves; I've got a choice of Thunder Fang, Crunch and Extremespeed. I know Extremespeed would be good, but I'm a bit concerned about the low PP. Is it really that good that it's worth sacrificing Thunder Fang or Crunch?

I like to use extremespeed as a finish move, thunder fang will give you coverage against water types
