PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Low Kick is the best fast move by a very narrow margin from a stats perspective.
  • Ember is right behind it, though its typing does allow Emboar to act as a Fire-type attacker. 
  • Heat Wave is a pretty bad move, but can pair with Ember to fulfill a Fire-type role. 
  • Focus Blast is Emboar's best charge move stats-wise, and shares the same typing with Low Kick to fulfill a Fighting-type role. 
  • Rock Slide lacks STAB and isn't really meaningful for Emboar other than niche uses in attacking gyms. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Ember hits harder than Low Kick on defense and is more optimal. 
  • Rock Slide is the optimal move on defense due to it being a 2-bar move, having a shorter damage window, and good coverage. 
  • Heat Wave might be difficult to access as a 1-bar move, but it's alright for what it does with STAB.
  • Focus Blast hits very hard, but is incredibly easy to dodge. 

PVE Overview

Emboar is the smoking hot Fire-type starter of Gen 5, but isn't as smoking hot in the PvE scene. A few ATK stats behind Blaziken combined with an inferior moveset pretty much makes it irrelevant upon its introduction, since we already had Torchic's Community Day and Blaziken is quite common among players. While Emboar will eventually get its Community Day if the trend continues, being worse than something everyone already has isn't gonna do it any favors.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Ember + Rock Slide and Focus Blast or Heat Wave

Ember is the superior choice due to poor performance from Low Kick

Rock Slide is mandatory due to its lower energy cost, good coverage, and respectable damage output. Focus Blast deals significantly more damage than Heat Wave and also offers additional coverage, but an insane 75 energy cost for either move makes them very difficult to use.
