PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Pair Blast Burn with Fire Spin for unparelled Fire-type DPS.

  • Use Blast Burn + Counter for higher DPS against Ice or/and Steel-types.

  • Pair Counter with Focus Blast for a formidable Fighting-type Pokemon.

  • Blaze Kick has been nerfed. It's still better than Overheat.

  • Overheat is inferior to both new moves and not worth using.

  • Brave Bird is underwhelming in every aspect.

  • No one actually has Stone Edge. It's also not useful in PvE.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Fire Spin is slightly superior to Counter on defense, hitting more of Blaziken’s counters for neutral damage.

  • Stone Edge is the superior charge move due to counter coverage and an early damage window… for the players who got it on the 2 days that it was available.

  • Brave Bird suffers from low power but is similarly difficult to dodge.

  • Although Overheat, Blast Burn, and Focus Blast do huge damage with STAB, they are very easy to dodge.

  • Blaze Kick costs the least amount of energy and has the earliest damage window. 

PVE Overview

For Torchic Community Day, Niantic blessed Blaziken with two wonderful Fire-type Charge Moves. While it still lacks in bulk, it's high attack stat and two new powerful moves makes it the Gengar of the Fire-types (but with actual resistances to boot).

If you missed out on the exclusive Blast Burn, Blaze Kick is still very good though worse after a 10% nerf). As one of the most common and powerful Fire-types, Blaziken is a welcome addition to your battle parties.

As a Fighting-type, Blaziken is still in contention as the third best Fighting type. It's Fire typing also adds some unique resistances over Breloom and Machamp. It resists Iron Tail and Fire Blast and only takes neutral damage from Dazzling Gleam. In this capacity, it edges out Machamp.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Counter + Blaze Kick and Blast Burn*

Counter outperforms Fire Spin and also gives Blaziken some coverage in this moveset. 

What has been anticipated for more than a year has finally arrived, in the form of 2 unique moves. Blast Burn is capable of massive damage (2.2 DPE) for only 50 energy, while Blaze Kick (1.38 DPE) is a mirror copy of the elemental punches and gives Blaziken some speed by allowing more smooth shield baiting. While this moveset doesn't necessarily help Blaziken cover its weaknesses, it does let Blaziken dominate its wins much more cleanly. The rest of Blaziken's charge moves cost too much energy to be effective.

Counter + Blaze Kick and Stone Edge*

A more flexible but very limited moveset that gives Blaziken some coverage, though depending on the matchups this might not matter as much. If you have the legacy Stone Edge, definitely keep it and unlock Blaze Kick to have this option, but this moveset isn't as significantly different as the previous one. It should be noted that without Blast Burn, Blaziken can get different results depending on matchups. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3 / 5

Blaziken first gained popularity during the Silph Arena Kingdom Cup in April 2019, where its ability to "Counter" the ubiquitous Lucario and Bastiodon earned it a position on many rosters despite its slow moveset. With the addition of two useful moves added to its moveset on Torchic Community Day, Blaziken notably moves up the ranks thanks to a faster moveset. Blaze Kick is the main improvement, allowing Blaziken a low cost charge move option energy-wise, which removes Blaziken's reputation as a late game nuker and lets it brawl in early and mid-game. Previous losses that are now wins (under 1-shield scenarios) include Froslass, and almost all Grass-types. Blaziken's low durability is still its main drawback, as a high ATK stat distribution lowers its overall bulk and causes it have close results with Meganium instead of clean wins. 

Ultra League: 3.5 / 5

A higher CP cap benefits Blaziken's high ATK stat and results in more wins, though a lack of bulk still holds it back. Obvious wins against Dialga, Melmetal, and Lucario are to be expected, though narrow victories against Venusaur are somewhat disappointing considering typing advantages. Overall a very interesting candidate, just be prepared to shield it well to preserve its limited endurance. 

Master League: 3 / 5 

With a max CP of 2848 Blaziken doesn't have adequate stats to compete well in Master League. Wins and losses are to be expected where type advantages apply, though Blaziken can return interesting results depending on shielding situations against Dialga. Just like in the other leagues, Blaziken almost demands shields to perform well, but maybe consider other options for this league.
