    I think Guts Flareon is just like Guts Luxray - they have potential but get outclassed by Swellow, or Ursaring even.

    Game Freak just loves to troll Flareon. Introduce awesome physical fire move in Flare Blitz? Nope, Flareon can't learn it! Introduce Dream World and the chance to have a new ability that could really help it out? LOL Guts on a pokemon that can't get burned.

    If Serperior is Grass/Dragon, I can definitely see it being a lot more useful despite the odd stat distribution. First thing about Serperior is that because its base Speed is higher than every Dragon in the game, it is able to do something first, like Glare (and not even Garchomp is safe from being paralyzed by that move). Of course, with Contrary, Serperior with this type combination will be able to learn the coveted Draco Meteor and power up every time that move is used, so it will become a lot more dangerous if left unchecked. If able, Leaf Storm can be used for those who are weak to Grass-types, like Tyranitar, but the point is, if Serperior is part Dragon, it will be as controversial as Chandelure having Shadow Tag because there will be discussion on whether a Grass/Dragon Serperior is broken.

    Another thing I think would be interesting is a Ghost/Steel Cofagrigus. With this type combination, it gains a lot of resistances, especially the coveted Dragon resistance, and it can definitely make good use of it. Being immune to Poison makes it even more of a godsend, since walls don't like Poison. With its Mummy ability, Cofagrigus is able to neuter certain threats more reliably, like Scizor, who will hate Ghost/Steel Cofagrigus since it can't do major damage to it while losing Technician. Because Fighting-types generally don't normally carry Earthquake (because it's considered redundant), they may find themselves wishing they did, although that puts them at the mercy of Flying-types unless they have a third option.

    Thanks for reading.

    I can see Grass/Dragon Contrary Serperior wielding a Choice Scarf (to outpace even Scarfed Dragons) and spamming Draco Meteor enough that some Steel-types won't be able to fend it off. Freakin' devastating.

    I don't believe it has. Sounds interesting enough, what with that massive Attack and decent movepool.

    ^ Not much worse than Deoxys-S with Pressure. It already outspeeds everything.

    @Feliciano

    Even if flareon gets flare blitz, it will remain outclassed by darmanitan.

    @General Volcano

    I am not sure if that would be gamebreaking tbh, since absol's main draw is sucker punch and it is easy to revenge anyway.

    @soulless shadow

    What's the point? its speed is already good enough. If it had something like "attack boost", i can see it becoming deadlier.

    @ CommadurrClowncrete:

    Hmm...
    A certian new & already famous fighting-type springs to mind... Your very username is a hint of this pokemon...

    Also the muskteers with their Justified ability...

    EDITED IN:
    Are made-up moves & abilities allowed, as long as they're reasonable?

    @CommandurrClowncrete So? Darmanitan can stay up in OU while Flareon actually starts to get used in the lower tiers. I never said it had to compete with Darmanitan, but giving it access to Flare Blitz would at least give people a reason to use it in the lower tiers.

    Here is the problem: Darmanitan is UU and Entei(another similar mon) is RU. Flareon isn't exactly gonna come out of Nu with that sort of competition.

    @General Volcano

    Conkeldurr can just mach punch absol. Or you mean that Conkeldurr should get speed boost?
