    Infernape, It's the best fire/fighting Pokemon before gen 5 but it was close between Blazikien...in looks I like Chrizard and Typhlosion better...

    For me, it's definitely Blaziken. Being a fighting chicken is an awesome thing.

    Blaziken. I feel sorry for it since it lost its special touch, and I personally prefer it over the other fire starters.

    Despite the fact that Typhlosion is my favourite, followed closely somewhat by Blaziken, I think that Blaziken's massive jumping ability + Charizard's ability to fly will lead them to victory in a battle.

    But like I said, Typhlosion is my fave so I voted for him.

    Blaziken's design is why I prefer it over the other Fire Starters... but I choose Mudkip when I play RSE... Typhlosion is still my choice Fire Starter in games...

    Blaziken wins it for me. Although it was a tough call between him and Charizard.

    Flash Back:

    Its Gen IV. Infernape is introduced. Fans love its stats and capabilities. It essentially replaces Blaziken.

    Blaziken: ;_;

    Present:

    Its Gen V. Blaziken gets Speed Boost and the improved High Jump Kick.

    Blaziken: MHUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    I'm not exactly an expert on Fire type Starters (I prefer the Fire type canines: Ninetales, Arcanine and Houndoom personally) but I'll throw in my two cents anyway:

    If this was Gen IV, then Infernape would be at the top of the food chain here. But since we're including Emboar, that automatically makes it Gen V, which is a whole different ball game.

    Blaziken is now top dog. Why? Because Speed Boost remedies the only thing Infernape had over it: Speed. Now Blaziken has better attacking stats (120/110>104/104), more bulk (80/70/70>76/71/71) and, after just one turn, more speed too. Throw in a great physical movepool with Flare Blitz, High Jump Kick, Swords Dance, Thunderpunch, etc. and access to Baton Pass to make it a great supporter too (it can now pass speed boosts a la Ninjask) and clearly Blaziken is the best Fire Starter in Gen V and, dare I say it, the best Starter, period. Did I mention it's not weak to Stealth Rock?

    Second place goes to the monkey. It's still fast as hell and can outspeed Blaziken on turn one. It still has a better special movepool than Blaziken (Nasty Plot, Grass Knot) so it can stand out, but it is now outclassed by Blaziken in every other way. Still, no Stealth Rock weakness helps.

    Third place is probably Charizard. Yes, he does have a (and I cannot stress this enough) BRUTAL Stealth Rock weakness, but he does also have good stats across the board, a very wide movepool and a useful immunity to Earthquake. He'd probably be a top threat if it wasn't for that (and I reiterate) BRUTAL Stealth Rock weakness.

    Fourth is Typhlosion. Same stats as Charizard and access to Eruption are all great. Not being roflstomped by Stealth Rock like Char is also a plus. Unfortunately, his movepool kinda really sucks a lot and it still takes 1/4 damage from SR just for switching in, which hinders the viability of Eruption some. Also, it's weak to Earthquake. At least it gets Flash Fire now.

    Last place goes to Emboar. It's an offensive Pokemon without the speed it needs to be an offensive Pokemon. On the flipside of that, it's a bulky Pokemon without the bulk it needs to be a bulky Pokemon. Add the now bland and unimpressive type combination, and you got yourself a surefire NU here. This thing seriously won't last long on the battlefield at all. It has all the right stats in all the wrong places. Serves it right for rehashing the Fire/Fighting combo for the third time in a row.

    If we're talking favorites though, my choices are:

    1. Blaziken
    2. Typhlosion
    3. Charizard
    4. Emboar
    5. the monkey

    My favourites aside from Blaziken would be:

    2)Typhlosion: My first Pokemon. As such, it has a special place in my heart. Its fairly decent too. It was quite good when it had Thunderpunch as a Special Move.

    3) Charizard: While its horribly over rated, recently, my liking for it has increased, the reason being restarting LeafGreen with Charmander.

    4) Infernape While it was always meant to fix what went wrong with Blaziken, its easy to use and very useful and that is its saving grace.

    5) Enbouu: No excuses. This thing is bad. If there had to be another Fire/Fighting type pokemon, could it not have been the starter. Fire/Fighting is a great typing and I don't mind their being another one. But the fire starter having the same type combo 3 generations in a row is a big letdown.
