Blaziken, The Blaze Pokémon. In battle, it blows out intense flames from it's wrists and attacks foes courageously. The Stronger the foe, the more intensely it's wrists burn. It has very strong legs, it can easily clear a 30 story building in one leap. It's punches leave it's opponent's scorched and battered.

Battle Moveset

A Good Moveset for Blaziken would have to be this:


Rock Slide

Items Attached:

Salac Berry

Preferred Nature:


Strategy Using Blaziken

Blaziken suffers quite a bit due to its low speed and defenses, and its type combination leaves it weak to quite a few types (water, flying, ground, Psychic)
Give it a Jolly nature and a Salac berry to make up for the lack of speed so you can use the Endure + Reversal combination to deal a very effective blow to your opponent.
Since Reversal will be getting a boost from STAB, it should deal quite a bit of damage to your foe. Rock slide is included here to cover flying types.
Overheat due to Blaziken's ability, which is Blaze, so if you don't feel like you should use Reversal after Endure, go with Overheat, which should be 1.5 times stronger.
Although you could just turn him into an all out sweeper with a moveset like: Brick break, Rock slide, Return/Earthquake/Aerial ace, Overheat, maybe shove Bulk up in here somewhere.
Maybe baton passing speed and attack onto this Pokemon may help it sweep away your opponent, that always is an option if you think Blaziken might be too slow for that specific battle.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Special Attack & Speed for Blaziken with any remaining in Defense
