The Blastoise line, Feralitgatr line, and Daikenki line are all pure water.
As are the Meganium line, Sceptile line, and Smuglord line, except all plant.
Do we hear people bitching about THAT?
As I have said in Infernape's defense in the past, Fire/Fighting is a type reserved for those who are truly epic enough to have them. Blaziken lead first because he kicked the ass of boring fire-dragon Charizard.
Infernape was just as awesome. Flaming chickens and flaming monkeys. You knew the party was just getting started. Now with Gen V, we have to turn the epicness up to eleven! So what next?
Enbuoh is the next step. A flaming pig is just as awesome as a flaming chicken/monkey.
I don't battle competitively often, so I don't care about who is more "useful" base-stat-wise. All I know is that in my Pokemon White, my dear Boca the Enbuoh will be standing beside White-kun as they face Zekrom together...
I will not chose between the two. I love Infernape and Enbuoh equally.
Signature is a WIP for the moment.
For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

Is Enbuoo supposed to be a nacho wrestler? Sorry I don't know what word to use other than nacho. But I'm sure most of you know what I mean.
Design-wise, I like Infernape, even better than Blaziken's in my opinion.
In terms of stats, Enbuoo kinda reminds me of Hariyama.
I choose Infernape regardless of the stats. It's Goku, come on! =)) xD

Enbuoo. Simply because I like his design better.
Cause Enbuoo looks like Ganon. XP And Infernape is quite overrated.
I dunno why they made Enbuoo Fire/Fighting though... he doesn't look the part IMO. :/ Maybe it was a type combo typo?
The Fire type default is pure Fire, not Fire/Fighting, which is why it gets more hate than the pure breds.
Also, I think that Fire type Starters need more purebreeds. As of Gen V, the only pure Fire Starter is Typhlosion. We need more of those.

Jalorda is a bit harder to define, but even the generic Grass/Poison would've done wonders. People probably would bitch about the only other alternative (Grass/Dragon) anyway. The other real life snakes, which Jalorda is closer to, are all Poison Type too. Anything to make them slightly more interesting.
So yeah. I don't see what's so bad about Fire/Fighting. At least it's a great Type Combination. I guess it's a whole "in a row" stuff. But if that was the case, people wouldn't say Salamence is a rip off of Dragonite, despite coming two Generations after him, and being completely different in design and Stats. I guess any Pokémon with the same Type(s) as another is a rip-off. lol
Oh well. In this match-up, I pick Enbuoo. I like pigs myself, and if I didn't want to train Mitsuko the snake bitch so badly, Enbuoo would be my Starter to pick in 5th Gen. It focuses in raw power, but with some more lastability than the previous two. Infernape is cool, but not as cool as either Blaziken or Enbuoo, so I pick the fiery pig.
lol I got bored.
I still remember the first time I laid eyes on Infernape. I'd signed up to have him as a starter in a Pokémon text based RPG. I didn't play much Pokémon then, so I looked him up on Bulbapedia (which was also a very new thing to me). Chimchar was odd but cute. Monferno had a dumb ridge thing on his face, and then I clicked Infernape and immediately said "Damn, that thing looks bad-ass."
When I first saw Enbuuo, however, that was a different story...I shat brix. That thing was UGLY, but he's grown on me. I'm really excited to use him as my starter in White.
Turns out they're both based off the same story and they're both really cool, but in the end, it goes to Infernape for being faster.
But I don't get why people hate them for having Blaziken's typing(who was the original Fire/Fighting)and are called copies .
I mean , Gallade has Medicham's typing , but no one hated him , almost everyone prefers him over Medicham just as if he was the original one.
Also , Salamence and Dragonite have the same typing and same base stat total (600), but no one called him a rip-off , he is considered better than Dragonite .
I don't get why people call Infernape and Enbuoo rip-offs of Blaziken , they only have Blaziken's typing , that's all .
Infernape and Enbuoo don't deserve they hate they get.
I actually like Infernape, so I'm gonna go with him.
Blaziken is still better
Enbuoo just looks dumb to me.
My Seadra's brighter than your Seadra.
Thanks to IslandWalker for the Avatar!
Definitely Infernape. Both by design, moves, and all else.

hell. where do i start? nape copied blaziken. that was kinda ok.
but then emboar? come on. (and yes, i'll bet anything thats its english name) what sucks about emboar is that it only learns one fighting attack by lv. blaziken and infernape learn pretty decent ones. the only thing that emboar has that the other two lack is better fire attacks. another way they spiced it up was they made it more defensive than nape and blaziken. so... even though i hate infernape it wins this one.
Enbuoo for better move sets and looks.
