    -Fire Punch
    -Mach Punch
    -Brick Break

    Get rid of fire spin. Iron fist is the better ability only because blaze and its equivalents kind of suck. Give it thunder punch (I assume it can learn it) or something instead, and close combat instead of brick break.

    Uh for Blaze Smogon already has quite a lot for all kinds of Inferanpe sets.

    As for Iron Fist it would be the best to use an all physical set so something like

    Infernape@Choice Band
    Iron Fist
    Jolly
    252ATK/252SPE
    ~ Close Combat
    ~ U-Turn
    ~ Flare Blitz / Nitro Charge
    ~ Stone Edge / Mach Punch

    Or you can add Swords Dance instead of say U-Turn and take out Choice Band for Life Orb.

    Insomn, you know you need to put a thunderpunch on that set somewhere.

    Yes, iirc the mother can pass down Dream World abilities.

    I actually prefer Brick Break over Close Combat because of its good secondary effect and also I would only use Flare Blitz if the ability is Blaze, so really my main problem is deciding between Iron First or Blaze.

    Edit: Also, while using Thunder Punch would be good, I usually only teach moves good for weaknesses if its a double weakness for the Pokemon, but if I can't find any other good moves to use I would probably use that.

    Close Combat is one of the advantages Infernape HAD over Blaziken. It needs the power.

    But it lowers the Def./Sp. Def. which is already pretty low for Infernape.

    Exactly, it doesn't need it, it's not taking hits already. CC should not be used on something like Machamp, because Machamp is Bulky.

    Oh, I see, its like using Hammer arm with a low speed Pokemon, doesn't make much of a difference, never thought of it that way.

    Edit: With those very Helpful replies (thanks!) I've come to this:


    Infernape
    Iron Fist
    Jolly or Adament
    (Don't know EV's yet)
    -Fire Punch
    -Mach Punch
    -Close Combat
    -?

    So I still need help with the 4th move.

    Thunder Punch wouldn't be bad.

    Been knocking around the idea of a Mixed Shaymin-S set.

    EVs: ??? / 252 Spe
    -- Swords Dance
    -- Seed Bomb
    -- Air Slash
    -- Hidden Power Rock/Earth Power/Synthesis
