Sorry I haven't been on for a while, been kinda busy with stuff. However, i have a question, when using arcanine which would be the prefered ability: intimidate, or flashfire. I've tried both on PO and felt that both were equally good in certain situations, so which do you guys think is better?

I usually go with INTIMIDATE, because flash fire only works when ur opponent uses fire type moves.

I would say that with some good prediction Flash Fire would work better. Switching in and taking one fire hit gives you immunity plus double the power on your own fire moves after STAB is added in. That would be pretty nice to sweep with. Intimidate will be a more reliable choice but will really only affect your opponent's sweepers. It just depends on how aggressive you want your arcanine.

if you got a poke that can't take any fire atack, then go for the flash fire
