Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Snarl is generally superior to Fire Fang due to the novelty of STAB Dark attacks; if looking for a Fire attacker, consider other Fire Pokemon
  • Foul Play is clearly superior to Crunch, possessing both a lower cooldown and fewer charges
  • Fire Blast's DPS is respectable, but its long cooldown makes it impractical, compounded by Houndoom's relative lack of bulk 
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Snarl is often better than Fire Fang, as it benefits from superior type coverage
  • Foul Play is superior to Crunch on account of the latter's longer cooldown
  • Fire Blast's long delay makes it fairly exploitable

Rating Explanation:

Houndoom is a relative newcomer to the Fire lineup, competing against veteran Arcanine, Flareon, and Charizard. Though it's outshone by Flareon from a pure Fire perspective, Houndoom sees success because of its dual typing. 

Due to the relative rarity of Gengar, Tyranitar, and Bug-types, the meta is currently hard-pressed to find significant Psychic killers. Enter Houndour, whose abundance in certain biomes leads to powerful STAB Dark arsenals. Dark-typing itself is a strong offensive type, as Fighting and Fairy Pokemon are few and far between. Thus, it may be prudent to forsake its Fire-typing in favor of a pure Dark profile, providing an affordable attacker in higher levels raids such as Lugia, Alakazam, and Gengar.
