OK, here we go.
In one corner, we have Arcanine, the original Physical FireFighter. Known for his ExtremeSpeed and fluffy fur, and he's also got good recovery in Morning Sun. If a Water-Type comes his way, he just Wild Charges him. Rock-types coming to ruin his fun? They get kicked in the face by his Close Combat. Of course, his typing makes him weak to Stealth Rock, but hey, it's all good for him.
Next up is Emboar, quite literally a Mega Fire Pig. He's got a giant, fiery beard, and the ability to spit out boiling-hot water. His movepool isn't too shabby, having Wild Charge, Stone Edge, Scald, and Earthquake. Don't forget his high HP, since that (slightly) helps make up for his poor defenses. A low speed doesn't help, either, but give it a Choice Scarf and he'll do just fine.
Lastly, we have Darmanitan, a round, fat,......THING. Anyway, the first thing you should know about him is his gigantic 140 Attack. He also has pretty good speed, enabling him to get the jump on slower 'Mons. Normally, his base 55 defenses would be a bad thing, but if his health is under 50%, he enters his Zen mode, where his defenses just about double. Good luck taking him out then.
So, in this war, each is pretty evenly matched up. The question is,
- Who has the better movepool?
- Who has the better design?
- Who would actually win?
- Who do YOU prefer?
Personally, I'm going with Emboar. Helped me out a bit in that WiFi comp, and he's more than able to fend for himself.
Alright, your turn.
