Move-Focused Build Explanation

This build focuses on maximizing Blaziken's move damage to quickly take out targets. It can be used in any lane with any lane partner.

  • Attack Weight provides Blaziken a large damage boost for its moves, particularly when it's fully stacked.
  • Weakness Policy synergizes well with Blaziken's frontline gameplay, increasing its Attack stat as it takes damage. It also grants more HP and damage.
  • Razor Claw gives Blaziken another slow effect tool whenever it uses its moves, allowing the Pokemon to stay on top of its targets.
  • Focus Band can be a replacement for Weakness Policy, exchanging damage for more durability.
  • Aeos Cookie can also be a replacement for Razor Claw to give Blaziken more HP, which also increases Blaze's healing effect.
  • Full Heal allows Blaziken to perform its combos without interruption by purging stuns and debuffs from itself.
  • Eject Button or X Speed can also work nicely with the build, giving Blaziken a mobility tool.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems additional HP. This can be achieved by having at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Attack or HP to balance out Blaziken's offense and defense.
  • Sp. Atk., Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on performing combos, equipping items that will maximize Blaziken's move damage is the ideal item combination.

As the results show, Muscle Band or Razor Claw, Weakness Policy, and a fully-stacked Attack Weight will produce the best outcome for the build. However, it's best to equip Razor Claw instead since its slow and bonus damage effects are more benefitial for Blaziken's gameplay.


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

Attack-Focused Build Explanation

This build puts more emphasis on Blaziken's attacks. It can be used in any lane with any lane partner.

  • Muscle Band improves Blaziken's attacks through increased damage and attack speed.
  • Scope Lens further improves Blaziken's attack through increased critical-hit rate and damage.
  • Razor Claw allows Blaziken's attacks to deal increased damage and slow targets whenever it uses a move.
  • Attack Weight can be a replacement for either Scope Lens or Razor Claw, depending on whether players prefer stronger Standard Attacks or Critical-hits.
  • Full Heal allows Blaziken to perform its combos without interruption by purging stuns and debuffs from itself.
  • Eject Button or X Speed can also work nicely with the build, giving Blaziken a mobility tool.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems additional HP. This can be achieved by having at least two (2) Emblems that are both Brown and White.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Attack, HP, or Critical-hit Rate to maximize Blaziken's Attacks and Blaze's healing effect.
  • Sp. Atk., Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build focuses on Standard Attack, equipping items that will maximize Blaziken's attack damage is the ideal item combination.

Out of all the item combinations, Muscle Band, Scope Lens, and Razor Claw will produce the best outcome for the build. Although the item combination did not generate the highest results, its results are still decent enough compared to others, and it's the only one that does not require any stacking involved to maximize damage.

As for alternatives, replacing Scope Lens or Razor Claw with Attack Weight would be the best choice. The item combination where Scope Lens is replaced will generate the best Standard Attack damage, while the one where Razor Claw is replaced will generate the best Critical-hit damage.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Focus Blast ImageFocus Blast Focus Blast gives Blaziken a strong, ranged burst damage move that also deals area damage.
Fire Punch ImageFire Punch Fire Punch gives Blaziken damage and mobility in one move. It also applies fire fragments faster since it hits targets and can be used twice.

Although Blaziken can switch between movesets, Fire Punch and Focus Blast offer more benefits for the Pokemon. The moveset allows for faster combat and is relatively easier to execute.

Fire Punch is a mobility move in essence but has a high damage potential, particularly when all punches hit. It also allows Blaziken to apply fire fragments faster since it can be used twice and each use consists of two punches.

Focus Blast is a ranged move that deals high burst damage while also slowing targets, making it great for finishing off or chasing targets.

On the other hand, Overheat and Blaze Kick offer Blaziken similar things as the other moveset but is more difficult and slower to pull off correctly.

Overheat deals the most damage out of all of Blaziken's move, but it's also the hardest to use since it needs to be charged to deal maximum damage and the Pokemon becomes stationary while charging, making it easy to dodge for opponents.

Blaze Kick works similarly to Fire Punch in that it's also a mobility move. The move is a great crowd-control move since it shoves opponents and can stun them when they hit a wall. However, it only applies one instance of fire fragment, which is significantly less compared to Fire Punch.

How to Play Blaziken

Jump to Section

Focus on Reaching Level 8 in the Early Game

Blaziken is fairly weak in the early game and will only unlock its full strength when it reaches level 8 and learn all of its moves. With that in mind, it's best to focus on leveling up in the early game and reaching level 8 as fast as possible. Moreover, try to avoid fights in the early game unless Blaziken has the upper hand.

Utilize Ember and Aerial Ace

Ember and Aerial Ace are Blaziken's initial moveset. Utilize them in the early game to help Blaziken level up faster.

Use Ember to poke opponents or secure wild Pokemon in the lane.

As for Aerial Ace, use it to chase or escape enemies.

Keep Applying and Triggering Blaze When Fighting

Blaze is what makes Blaziken's attacks and moves powerful, and it's central to the Pokemon's gameplay. Whenever Blaziken hits an opponent with an attack or move, a fire fragment is applied to them. Applying 5 stacks of fire fragments will deal additional damage and heal Blaziken. Always keep this in mind when engaging in a fight as triggering the effects is key to playing Blaziken effectively.

Here's our calculation table for Blaziken's healing per level.

Blaze: Blaziken Passive Effect and Cooldown

Chain Moves and/or Attacks Together

Chaining moves and/or attacks together is the best way to quickly apply Blaze and trigger its effects when fightining. Although players do have the freedom to use Blaziken's moves in any order, there are certain order of moves that are objectively better.

Refer to the combos section for ideas:

▼ Go to Combos Section ▼

Activate UNITE Move To Change Stances

Blaziken's UNITE Moves are unique since it's a Unite Move that allows Blaziken to change its fighting form when used. Activate Blaziken's UNITE move once it becomes available, spam and chain moves on enemies and keep changing styles on the go if Blaziken is just traversing lanes.

Spinning Flame Fist

Activating this UNITE Move turns Blaziken's moves into punches, which are Focus Blast and Fire Punch. Blaziken also gains an Attack buff which makes it hit harder and lasts until the UNITE Move bar is depleted.

Pokemon UNITE - Attention Icon.pngTip It's better to always start in this stance since Focus Blast allows Blaziken to hit opponents from range without fully engaging in a fight, which is useful for teamfights.

Spinning Flame Kick

Activating this UNITE Move turns Blaziken's moves into powerful kicking moves, which are Blaze Kick and Overheat. Blaziken also gains an additional movement speed which makes it move around faster and get to its objectives quicker. This effect also lasts until the UNITE Move bar is depleted.

Focus Blast to Overheat Combo

Focus Blast to Overheat Combo
Focus Blast IconFire Punch IconFire Punch IconSpinning Flame Kick IconBlaze Kick IconOverheat Icon

Initiate the combo by using Focus Blast to slow the target and approach it. Once at close range, use Fire Punch twice while ensuring that all punches hit the target. Shortly afterwards, use Spinning Flame Kick to switch movesets, then shove the target towards a desired direction or wall using Blaze Kick.

Alolan Ninetales ImageAlolan Ninetales Slowbro ImageSlowbro Wigglytuff ImageWigglytuff Pokemon with Strong Disables
AoE disabling moves like Dazzling Gleam and Sing allow Blaziken to easily position itself and hit enemies with its combos. Meanwhile, single-target disables like Slowbeam and Telekinesis can keep a target in place long enough for Blaziken to finish its combos and switch forms as needed.
Inteleon ImageInteleon Leafeon ImageLeafeon Pokemon with High Burst Damage
These Pokemon are mobile and can assist in dealing burst damage on the go while Blaziken initiates a teamfight. These two are the perfect assists for Blaziken since they can execute enemies that are easily overwhelmed or low at health.
Mega Mewtwo X ImageMega Mewtwo X Umbreon ImageUmbreon Urshifu ImageUrshifu Aggressive Frontliners
Pokemon that can deal and tank damage in the frontlines with Blaziken empowers the Pokemon to get aggressive. Blaziken can direct it towards them instead, allowing the Pokemon to perform its combos with little to no interruptions. They can also use moves like Wicked Blow and Infinite Psyburn to set up Blaziken's combos. Moreover, having two or more Pokemon in the frontlines enables the team's backlines to safely dish out damage from a distance.
Comfey ImageComfey Blissey ImageBlissey Dedicated Supporters
Having a dedicated supporter accompany Blaziken throughout the game can definitely improve the Pokemon's efficiency. Short-cooldown healing moves like Soft-Boiled can prolong Blaziken's stay in the frontlines, allowing it to deal more damage. Meanwhile, a move like Bliss Assistance can get Blaziken out of dangerous situations or turn a losing fight around.

It does...but energy amp has 20sec cooldown ig. Better to use razor claw

I’m a blue badge Blaziken and my build is double stack with muscle band. You get good sets of Hp and attack while the muscle band keeps you in check for when you’re waiting for cooldowns. I have a whole 10 minute video of Quadra’s, Penta’s, and Rayquayza steals. Would recommend for all rounder mains
