Thats a really good moveset: 8/10!

The only thing that I would change is extremespeed. It has 5 (If I'm correct) PP and has and 80 base attack.

Take Down would be better here since it has a better base attack, more PP, and Arcanine could handle the recoil. It's TM 9 in R/B/Y so you could trade it there, teach it Take Down, then trade it back to Crystal.

Hope that helped you and congrats on the nice Arcanine.

Crunch is a better choice than Bite. Both are Dark-Type moves but Crunch does more damage and has a chance of lowering Sp. Def while Bite can make your opponent flinch. Unfortunately to get Crunch onto a Growlithe you need to breed it with a male Houndour that knows Crunch. So on this Arcanine this isn't an option... but Bite could really mess up your opponent if you manage to flinch his/her pokemon.

Instead of Extremespeed or Take Down, I'd chose Return. It is the highest damaging Normal-Type move that has no drawbacks at all.

Body Slam over takedown. Slightly less damage, no recoil, and a paralyze chance. Much better, imo.

I also am unsure about Dragon Breath. I don't have anything better, but I really don't like that move. It's probably just a thing I have against Dragon type moves ;)

Nice moveset. Either Return or Bodyslam, imo.

Confirmation of my existence?

Or because I really like posting?

Nah, I dunno. I was really bored and I hate moving on to the second page :P

Nice moveset! But take out BITE and Dragonbreath. Instead of bite,make it learn CRUNCH ( It is more powerful than bite). Then, change Dragonbreath to IRONTAIL if you have it. (Olivine's Gym Leader will give you that). Look at it :
1. Crunch - Flinching
2. Flamethrower - Burnt
3. Irontail - Takes down defence
4 Extremespeed - Great move

^^ That's my suggestion. In fact I have an ARCANINE(Lvl.98) with this moves. Indeed, I used to beat RED with it.

You do realize that you just revived a topic that's been dead for over a year, right? I'm not trying to be rude; just be sure to check the creation date of a thread before you respond to it.
