    Logically speaking, Infernape is the best Fire Starter whereas Typhlosion is arguably the worst (he competes with Charizard for that title).

    Furthermore, the monkey clearly has an advantage in battle since it gets STAB Fighting moves to use against Typhlosion. Conversely, the best Typhlosion can do is fire off a mediocre Earthquake.

    It's obvious that Infernape wins in a battle.

    That said, I detest the monkey with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns. On the other hand, Typhlosion is my my second favorite Fire Starter (after Blaziken), so I'm voting for him, logic be damned.

    Typhlosion... Infernape always seemed overrated to me.

    Who would win, or who do we prefer? Most of the contests area matter of personal preference.

    The fighting-type doesn't give Infernape an advantage over Typhlosion in a one-on-one, and given their stats it basically comes down to which one has the better trainer.

    Now, I personally am a big fan of Typhlosion because I like its design far better and it's given me a lot of good, solid use, but that's just me.

    Infernape is just a Blaziken knock off. Typhlosion is still my fav fire starter ever.

    Infernape would obviously win considering it's offensive capabilities.

    But Blaziken still pwns both of them :P

    Sure, it may be overused, but just because it shares its typing with Blaziken does not make Infernape a copy in any way.

    On topic, I prefer Infernape's design, and its battle capabilities are obviously superior. I actually liked using Typhlosion much more in the 3rd Generation, where its Thunderpunch was backed off by its high special attack and Stealth Rock wasn't there to absolutely wreck it.

    Great logic.

    same type
    Oh, heaven forbid a Pokemon share a dual typing. Pelliper is totally a rip-off a Gyarados. And Bronzong? How dare they rip-off Metagross!

    both final forms of starters...
    And how is that the fault of Infernape? If Roserade had turned out to be the final form of the Johto starter, would that have had made it a rip-off of Venusaur solely because of typing and similar stat distribution?

    I reiterate: it's perfectly fine to dislike Infernape, and to call it overused. But just because it shares a similar typing and it suffered through the misfortune of being chosen to be the final evolution in a Fire starter's evolutionary line does not make it a copy. They have differently distributed stats, completely different designs, and different movepools. Infernape is not a Blaziken rip-off.

    About the stats: The problem is that, even though they're technically distributed differently, they are clearly meant to do the same thing. Which is, attacking from the physical and special sides of the spectrum. If the stat distribution for Infernape was more bulky and defensive, this complaint would be baseless. As it is, it's quite valid.

    Anyway, I think the main problem with Infernape is that it was the Final evolution Fire/Fighting Starter that came immediately after Blaziken. I doubt he'd get quite as much hate if he wasn't a starter, or if he was the Gen VI Fire starter or something.

    Personally, I hate him, but not for the reasons most people do. I just hate spotlight stealing monkeys with ridiculously wide movepools and great offensive stats and typing who take popularity away from the unappreciated Grass type. If he was a bear or a cougar, I wouldn't mind him so much (though I do tend to dislike the Fire Starters for some reason, so who knows).
