Blaziken came out first, he was cool. Infernape came out second, he is a better version of blaziken more or less. Emboar tried to be different by putting all the speed into hp, and in the end was terrible because his 100 base hp does not help him take hits when his defenses are so abysmal, id they gave emboar like base 90+ defenses, then he would be nice because he would be able to take a hit and then return the favor.
GF tried to make emboar different from the first 2 and that was what screwed the poor fella over. And as foe him being a starter, well you font brcesarily have to use your starter, i ended ip boxing emboar later in my game because i had a conkeldur and chandelure, which for me was better than having emboar. Just use a different poke or different starter id you dont like him...
You're not looking at it the right way, TC. It's not Fire/Fighting type Pokemon. It's Fire/Fighting type starters. We got three in a row in the past few generation... it's getting dull and annoying. We need something new.
