    Emboar is personally my least fave of the Unova starters, but I don’t think it’s ugly or terrible. It’s still a nice hard-hitting physical attacker with some nice TM and Move Tutor coverage. It’s just because it happened to be the third consecutive Fire/Fighting starter that I think caused all the hate it generated. I don’t see Emboar being hated on much these days which shows many have gotten over it.

    I don’t see Serperier or Samurott able to take down Mega Rayquazzas!

    I would probably agree with that statement. We had 3 straight Fire/Fighting types, so how does Emboar differentiate from Blaziken and Infernape? Blaziken was probably the best because of it's access to a mega evolution, and it has a clear role. Given how much speed played a part of the metagame, Emboar's lack of speed really hurt it even though it hit a little harder.
