PvP Moveset Explanation

Fire Spin + Flamethrower* and Psyshock

Fire Spin is superior to the legacy Ember in terms of energy generation, while Ember is superior to Feint Attack thanks to STAB. Feint Attack does have niche uses due to its typing, and could be beneficial in very specific situations. 

Flamethrower is a legacy move on Ninetales, but is also its best charge move overall thanks to its less expensive energy cost compared to almost every other option, and also gets STAB. Psyshock gives Ninetales some interesting coverage, but due to its 45 energy cost which is less than Flamethrower, it can be used to shield bait. The rest of Ninetales's charge moves cost an insane amount of energy to use and don't typically perform as well. If you must use Ninetales without Flamethrower, then Heat Wave is the next cheapest option costing 75 energy (2 more Fire Spins), though Overheat performs way better if you can get to 80 energy. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2.5 / 5 

Ninetales is a more defensive-oriented Pokemon stat-wise, with a mono-Fire typing that offers more resistances than weaknesses, and a decent moveset if you have the legacy Flamethrower. Without it, Ninetales falls behind even further due to otherwise expensive options in terms of energy. The lack of coverage in its movesets (disregard Solar Beam cause of its insane energy cost) and the prevalence of Water-types in Great League give Ninetales some problems, which hurts its overall rating. Overall a decent pick, but performs better in closed scenarios due to more limited threats, such as the Silph Arena's Rainbow Cup. 

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

With a max CP of 2279 Ninetales would require additional stats to reach the CP cap of Ultra League. Regardless, the obvious wins against most of the common Steel-types in this league are to be expected, though Ninetales does end up in a tie with Steelix rather than a win with even shields. Numerous losses against the ubiquitous Dragon-types and other bulkier Pokemon leaves Ninetales to mostly the Great League. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Ninetales ain't so hot in Master League.
