Default Infernape vs. Blaziken

Who is better? Infernape or Blaziken? Does anyone have a favorite? Is one better than the other? I mean, they are both fire/fighting type, but which one is better for battling, like in tournaments? Just want to hear anyone else's thoughts on the subject.

Infernape is faster, but Blaziken's attacking stats are better. The other stat differences are negligible.

And put in all the moves both can have, for the rest. Frankly though, I don't know much about this, so... yeah.

I think Infernape is much better, since speed makes all the difference.

But Blaziken has a larger Flying-Type movepool (which both are weak against) and has higher attacking stats, so it can own Infernape more easily than many think. Even if Infernape is better, it's not by much. They seem somewhat evenly matched.

And this seems more appropriate in the polls board, but it's just me. :P

Plus,Blaziken has some moves that allow it to catch up to Ape in speed(agility) and use a flying type move against him.

They're both the same types and they both learn some similar move but I choose Infernape

My Blaziken is faster than my Infernape and owns it with flying moves T_T

Default Re: Infernape vs. Blaziken

I would have to choose Blaziken, considering it has higher base stats in Attack(120) compared with Napes 104, and SpAtt (110)compared to Napes 104. The only reason Blaziken is in BL and used less then Infernape is because it has worse speed then Infernape's base speed of 108. Blaziken's base speed is only 80. Speed can make all the difference in a battle. But for more raw power and a better movepool, Blaziken.

Default Re: Infernape vs. Blaziken

I think I'm getting somewhat of a consensus that Infernape is better for speed and Blaziken is better for Attack. I'm not pitting them against each other in an actual battle, rather just want to know which one to put on a team. Then, I just have to pick a nature then EV train it. Oh, and I only want to train Blaz/Infern up to Level 50 to be tournament legit. I don't know if that will affect movepool choices or not. I'm appreciating the feedback, keep it coming.

Doesn't matter much. Monferno learns Flare Blitz at level 49 and Calm Mind is a TM, so that's done. Combusken learns Sky Uppercut at level 50, but I'm not sure if it can learn Flare Blitz by breeding. And the rest would be up to move relearning. :P

Right off the bat, Infernape is better. But if you take a few turns to let Blaziken set up with Substitute/Endure, with a Salac Berry, to make up for his mediocre speed, Blaziken can be quite a threat to most teams out there.

Infernape is everything Blaziken wants to be and then some. Blaziken gets a better offensive movepool, but Infernape's movepool is just so much bigger and better. Infernape gets Encore, Stealth Rock, Fake Out, Nasty Plot, Calm Mind and can viably use them all. Blaziken is only limited to a few sets, and is pretty slow. Blaziken may have 12 more points in its offensive stats, but Infernape has 28 more in speed. One on one, Infernape with Earthquake usually emerges victorious.

There's a reason why Infernape is OU and Blaziken is BL, seriously. The only thing Blaziken can do that Infernape can't is SubSalac Reversal, and that's kinda pointless in this new metagame of lots of weather and Stealth Rock.
