X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Bite slightly outclasses Snarl with higher DPS, but unfortunately is a legacy move.

  • Fire Fang benefits from STAB and should be paired with Fire-type charge moves.

  • Wild Charge is superior to Arcanine’s other charge moves, giving it a potent niche as a pseudo Electric Pokemon with different resistances.  

  • Flamethrower outclasses Fire Blast, offering nearly the same DPS at half the energy cost.

  • Crunch and Bulldoze have no purpose on an offensive Arcanine.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Snarl is superior to Fire Fang, offering better damage and coverage.

  • Don't expect Bite to do much at all to attackers.

  • Wild Charge is a powerful and nasty surprise to Water-type counters.

  • Crunch has more value than Flamethrower and Bulldoze with its low energy cost, early damage window, and coverage.

  • Fire Blast is underwhelming in every aspect.
Rating Explanation

Arcanine has transformed from an archetypal Fire-type Pokemon to a unique, pseudo Electric-type. With Arcanine’s impressive base stats, it can rush headlong into resisted Ice, Grass, Fairy, and Fire-type attacks and hit back with the powerful Wild Charge. On defense, Water-type attackers have to be wary of this Electric blast as well.

Arcanine reminisces about its glory days as Fire-type top dog, as it is now outclassed in this role by 2 generations of legendary Pokemon in addition to Flareon, Blaziken, and Charizard.
