    Put 'em up against each other and they'll KO each other quickly, but it seems like Emboar's the only one who can pull through (barely base 71 defenses, monkey?). Not like it's a Gawd or anything, but it seems better than the others.

    Blaziken, you can't beat a kung-fu chicken.

    I would have to go with infernape. I think I like his design the best. Personally Emboar shouldn't be fire/fighting because he could pass off as just pure fire imo. Also I do like Blaziken picked torchic in first playing of gen 3. Also thinking back on it blaziken looks cool but I'm a little confused on its designs, first two stages look like chickens but then it doesn't really resemble them at all.

    Blaziken. I mean, it was the first, and it has such amazing style, not to mention how awesome it is with Speed Boost.

    Infernape is one of my favorite Pokemon, and is overall more fun to use then the other 2 imo.

    This took some thought. Infernape was the start I picked when I first played Diamond and it impressed me. Emboar is a design I enjoy and is genuinely easy to use in game, though I did not pick it and it's stats are poor for online. The winner was Blaziken, however, because I learned to value it's typing and stats in the Battle Frontier and against Steven when he was Champion. Not to mention I like its design the most.

    At this current moment, Blazekin is beating Infernape and I am offended!

    I chose Infernape, but it really is a two-way tie between it and Blaziken. Both are useful, but I found myself leaning towards the fire money more than the bird. Can't give an opinion on Emboar as I haven't trained one yet.

    Blaziken for me. There's something about chickens that I like, because they are cute for being birds. Their feathery touch makes them feel soft. Not to say I think Blaziken's soft, but it helps that they don't always have fire glowing from some part of their body. By the way, Blaziken is to me an amazing revelation when I first found out about what Torchic will evolve into. I also found Blaziken's battling potential to be promising and great, and to top this, he got a great blessing in the form of a wonderful ability!

    Thanks for reading.

    Blaziken all the way. They certainly made a great Pokemon out of the cockfighting idea, and with Speed Boost, Hi Jump Kick, Swords Dance, and a great Attack stat, this thing's Uber for a reason.

    Blaziken, in my opinion, outclasses the others in design, movepool and general usage. Speed Boost is ridiculous.

    Infernape was pretty cool (and competitively better, at least in fourth gen), but Blaziken was always my favorite. Emboar was... blegh.

    Blaziken.

    Blaziken was the first Fire/Fighting starter ever. He was revolutionary for his time, and Blaziken was a top tier Pokémon during the R/S/E era. However, Blaziken suffered during Generation IV. Infernape took his unique place, and many players preferred Infernape's Speed over Blaziken's Attack and Special Attack.
    Now, Blaziken has risen once again, thanks to Speed Boost. And Emboar can't change that.
    I claimed the fabulous Burgh in the Official Claim-A-Character thread, and I claimed Quiver Dance in the Official Claim-A-Move thread.

    The first is not always the best *cough* Gen I *cough*. I'm going with Infernape, although I like Blaziken as well Infernape is just much cooler in design and usability. Well, prior to Speed Boost!Blaziken.
