In this thread, we have a three-way matchup between the three fully-evolved Fire-Fighters (as I like to call them). First, we have Blaziken, the original Fire-Fighter from Generation III. Next, we have Infernape, the fast Fire-Fighter from Generation IV. Last and most likely least, we have Emboar, the big powerhouse from Generation V.
Blaziken was wildly popular back in the day, often compared to Charizard. It had an original type combo, and it was quite scary to face in battle, dur to its strong offensive powers. Today, that's more true than ever, thanks to Speed Boost and the ridiculously strong Hi Jump Kick.
the monkeyInfernape. When it came out, this eager ape stole Blaziken's thunder with its superior Speed, though that's now fixed because of Blaziken's new Speed Boost. It was hated because it copied Blaziken's types, but also loved on a competitive note. Infernape is especially proficient with a mixed-category set.
Now we have Emboar. This thing completely fell flat on its enormous face because it used the Fire/Fighting combo for the third time in a row. It has massive Attack and big HP, but that's about it. It has so-so defenses; definitely not enough to abuse that HP. It also has very bad Speed. In Trick Room, it could work with a "suicide pig" theme, due to all those recoil moves and Reckless.

I'd go with Blaziken. Ever since it came out, it's been my favorite Fire starter.
