X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Snarl is superior to Fire Fang; if you’re looking for a Fire attacker, consider other Fire-type Pokemon.

  • Foul Play outputs more damage over time than Crunch, but they are fairly close. Houndoom will also spend less time in cooldown with Foul Play.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Snarl is often better than Fire Fang, as it benefits from better type coverage and higher energy gain.

  • Compared to Foul Play, Crunch is slightly harder to dodge and more likely to be used before fainting.

  • Fire Blast is all forms of bad on defense.
Rating Explanation

Unfortunately for Houndoom, it is totally outclassed in both roles. It’s less outclassed as a Dark-type attacker, as only Tyranitar can claim to be strictly better. Houndoom remains one of few species viable for Alakazam solos in neutral weather. It’s a solid Pokemon to bring to a Mewtwo raid, and Dark specialist Houndoom works against Gengar as well.

For Fire-type offense, not only are there the legendary Fire Pokemon, but veterans such as Flareon and Arcanine both send Houndoom running with its tail between its legs.
