The Best and Worst of Fire Pokemon

Honorable mentions: Quilava
Looks: Oh boy, just what I wanted: another Pokemon with porn everywhere. I can hardly contain myself. :\ Unlike Braixen and Delphox though, I think Emboar made the perfect balance between humanlike and animal, though that's probably because the Fighting type allows for more leeway. But it's still pretty animal-like, pretty badass, and pretty adorable. Pigs are also really good animals to work with.
Strength: The deciding factor between Quilava and Emboar. Emboar has a much wider movepool to play around with. That Fighting typing is a big influence on that. I've also trained several Emboar, and they've all been great additions to the team. Too bad its speed and defenses hamper it so much, but on the plus side, that bad speed earned it a place on my Trick Room team.
Why I like it: It looks cool, it's pretty solid in battle, and it's always reliable.
Other: I don't think Emboar took the jump to 3D well. I prefer how it looks in Gen V.
Honorable Mentions: Pyroar, Delphox, Magby
Looks: It wouldn't be too bad if it wasn't Fennekin's evo. Aside from being too human-like and having skinny twig limbs, its ear hair is so ugly and misshapen. At least Delphox fixed that. That being said, I like the witch angle it's developing.
Strength: I never used it and I never will. I only had one for the National Dex. When I faced it in battle, it either went down easy to Pangoro or Azumarill.
Why I dislike it: I don't like the fact that it's so human-like. I dislike how it's also so feminine, which I don't like on Pokemon with 7:1 gender ratios. It might have been able to pull off the girly angle well if the anthro-ness wasn't messing it up. Lilligant is probably the perfect example of a feminine Pokemon who balances gender and design well, becoming a beautiful plant person. Braixen just looks like a bad fox fursona.
Other: I chose Pyroar over Delphox because I want to use Delphox for my least favorite starter. But then I decided to use Braixen here because Pyroar's female form is a lot better than all of them.
