I was talking about design, but yeah, Emboar isn't filling an overly defensive role any time soon. And yeah, that's what I was going for with that idea; nothing else really came to mind as something Blaziken has any use for. He doesn't have versatility on both attacking sides like Charizard does, after all.
And I saw the post. Great points all around, though like R_N said, the low HP will sting hard unless he gets ridiculously blessed defensively. Hopefully GF is sensible and doesn't do that wide-spread distribution they've done in a couple places with Megas. Sableye needs the severe boost.
