* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Pair Counter with Focus Blast and Fire Spin with Overheat.

  • Blaziken’s Fighting-type attacker role is more useful, so Counter and Focus Blast is the superior moveset.

  • Brave Bird is underwhelming in every aspect.

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

Rating Explanation

As one of the Gen 3 starters, Blaziken was hyped pre-release for being a Fighting-type with the second highest Atk stat. Unfortunately, it did not have a Fighting-type charge move on Gen 3 release. This was rectified a mere 2 days later, making Blaziken the first Gen 3 Pokemon to have a legacy move.

Blaziken has excellent Fire and Fighting-type attacking movesets, but it is outclassed in the Fire-type role by Moltres, Entei, and Flareon. Therefore, its metagame niche is a Fighting-type attacker that resists moves such as Iron Tail and Fire Blast and takes neutral damage from Dazzling Gleam. In this capacity, it edges out Machamp.
