Attack-Damage Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This build focuses on making Cinderace into a late-game damage powerhouse, mixing damage and mobility via Blaze Kick and Flame Charge. If the opponents have a lot of Sure-hit disabling moves, Cinderace can learn Feint instead to have a decent protection against those type of moves. It can fit in any lane, but taking the jungle would be the most effective.
· Muscle Band increases Cinderace's attack damage through its HP-based bonus damage effect and boosts its attack speed.
· Scope Lens improves Cinderace's attack damage further through increased critical-hit rate and damage.
· Rapid-Fire Scarf adds some more static damage and attack speed, but its primary purpose comes from its massive attack speed boost effect. It also works well with Muscle Band's HP-based effect, increasing Cinderace's DPS via its attacks.
· X Speed adds more mobility to Cinderace. It's useful for both chasing enemies or escaping.
· Alternatively, Eject Button can also work just as fine for the build.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown emblems for maximum damage and 6 White emblems for additional HP.
· This can be achieved by equipping at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
· Equip Emblems that increase Attack, or Critical-Hit Rate to further improve Cinderace's attacks.
· Sp. Atk., Sp. Def, and Defense can be freely traded for any of the other stats.

Since the build is centered on Cinderace's attacks, equipping items that will maximize the Pokemon's attack damage is the ideal item combination.

Out of all the item combinations, Muscle Ban, Scope Lens, and Rapid-Fire Scarf will be the best for the build. It produced decent results, but the massive attack speed bonus from Rapid-Fire Scarf is extremely benefitial for the build's goal.

These damage tests are conducted using the Training Dummy in Practice Mode. The results are taken from the Total Damage data.

Pyro Ball Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This build focuses more on maximizing Pyro Ball's damage to serve as a secondary source of damage with Flame Charge being the complimentary move. However, If the opponents have a lot of Sure-hit disabling moves, Cinderace can learn Feint instead to have a decent protection against them. Cinderace will still rely mainly on its attacks to deal damage.
· Muscle Band is a staple item for Cinderace, increasing its attack damage through its HP-based bonus damage effect and boosts its attack speed.
· Attack Weight provides Cinderace a large damage boost, particularly for Pyro Ball.
· Float Stone improves Cinderace's overall mobility, which is useful for stacking Attack Weight in the early game. It also gives a decent amount of Attack stat for more damage.
· X Speed adds more mobility to Cinderace. It's useful for both chasing enemies or escaping.
· Alternatively, Eject Button can also work just as fine for the build.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown emblems for maximum damage and 6 White emblems for additional HP.
· This can be achieved by equipping at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
· Equip Emblems that increase Attack, or Critical-Hit Rate to further improve Cinderace's damage.
· Sp. Atk., Sp. Def, and Defense can be freely traded for any of the other stats.

Since the build is centered on Pyro Ball, equipping items that will maximize its damage is the ideal item combination.

Out of all the item combinations, Muscle Band, a fully-stacked Attack Weight, and Float Stone will be the best for the build. It scored only slightly lower than the highest result but gives Cinderace more benefits in the long run.

Although there are item combinations that produced the same results, the attack speed and bonus damage from Muscle Band is staple for an attack-damage Pokemon like Cinderace. Also, the movement speed boost and passive effect from Float Stone helps Cinderace to go in and out of goal zones when stacking Attack Weight.

These damage tests are conducted using the Training Dummy in Practice Mode. The results are taken from the Total Damage data.

List of Battle Items

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Flame Charge ImageFlame Charge Flame Charge is best to outmaneuver opponents while bombarding them down with your fast attacks.
Blaze Kick ImageBlaze Kick Blaze Kick is a sure-hit move that deals high single-target damage. It also allows Cinderace to reposition quickly should enemies get close or are fleeing.

This moveset gives Cinderace a well-balanced kit that is more benifitial for its gameplay. Blaze Kick deals high amounts of damage to a single target and enables Cinderace to keep its distance from enemies, especially while attacking. Flame Charge improves Cinderace's mobility and can act as another source of damage.

Pyro Ball and Blaze Kick are Cinderace's primary damage moves. Although majority of the damage the Pokemon deals comes from its attacks, these moves help in dishing out more damage quickly.

Pyro Ball deals damage to enemies in a line. It's great for farming wild Pokemon quickly and poking opponents from range. However, since the move launches a projectile in a straight line, it can easily be dodged by opponents.

Blaze Kick deals a high amount of critical-hit damage to a single target. It also functions as a repositioning tool, which works great for Cinderace's core gameplay. However, it is not an effective farming tool since it's a single-target move.

On the other hand, Feint and Flame Charge are Cinderace's utility moves. Each offers something to help Cinderace execute its gameplay.

Feint doesn't deal any damage and is purely a defensive move. It increases Cinderace's movement speed and enables the Pokemon to become invincible for a short time, allowing it to completely avoid all damage within that time period. It also gives its next three attacks healing capabilities once the move is upgraded.

Flame Charge is a dash move that can also deal damage. It's great for repositioning and keeping distance from enemies since it allows Cinderace's next boosted attack to slow targets for a short time.

Since Cinderace's primary source of damage is its attacks, its moves only serve a secondary purpose. Although selecting a moveset is ultimately up to player preference, it's best to base it on the enemy's team composition.

How to Play Cinderace

Jump to Section

Play Safe Until Level 7

Cinderace is a rather late-blooming Pokemon similar to Gardevior. Cinderace evolves at Lv. 5 but does not get its first move upgrade until Lv. 7. Prioritize farming and keep your distance in team and objective fights before the first power spike at Lv. 7.

Play as a Jungler

The best way to safely level up to level 7 is to take on the jungler role, allowing you to get all the experience from the jungle camps.

Team Up with Defenders or All-Rounders

Teaming up with sturdy Defenders like Snorlax or Crustle will help to ensure a successful early game as you farm EXP. Otherwise, partnering up with a high crowd control Pokemon like Lucario or Slowbro will allow for safer engagement with enemy Pokemon and safer KOs.

Watch Out for High-Burst Pokemon

Be careful when going against high-burst Pokemon like Gengar as they can quickly burst you down and take you out of the fight even at full HP.

Turn On Lock-On Icon and Advanced Controls

In team fights, using the Lock-On Skill as well as Advanced Controls is crucial for an auto-attack-heavy character like Cinderace. This allows you to focus on only one target or avoid attacking the nearest enemy approaching you while leaving critical HP enemies behind. It also allows you to choose the enemy you wish to snipe with Blazing Bicycle Kick by scrolling the target wheel first to your desired target.
List of Settings and Best Settings to Use

Utilize Blaze Effects

Although it's subtle, Blaze contributes a lot to Cinderace's offense. It's important to know how it works and what you need to do to utilize its effects.

Blaze: Cinderace Passive Effect and Cooldown

Get Boosted Attacks by Using Moves

Your attack instantly becomes a Boosted Attack each time you use a move, allowing you to spam them. Always follow up with a Boosted Attack after using a move to take advantage of the effect.

Fight Through a Brawl at Low Health

When Cinderace's HP reaches 50% or lower, its attack speed and critical chance increase. In some cases where you have low health while facing an opponent, it is best to push through and take advantage of the increased damage output to knock down the opponent instead of retreating.

However, it is important to play strategically and not overextend looking for KOs. Avoid deliberately letting your HP down dangerously low to get the bonus damage all the time.

Utilize Dash Moves to Reposition or Escape

It is important that you always maintain a respectable distance between you and your opponent - not to close to get hit, but not to far to get out of range.

Secure Objectives for Your Team

Being a hard-hitter, Cinderace can secure boss Pokemon like Rayquaza quickly, even by itself. Be sure secure objectives for your team either by helping them take it or doing it by yourself.

Use Blazing Bicycle Kick

If necessary, use Blazing Bicycle Kick to secure objectives for your team.
