Best Moveset for Chimchar, Monferno, and Infernape in Pokémon Go

Punching and burning.

With Chimchar being featured during a Spotlight Hour, we can expect to see the entire evolution line showing up more often in battles, especially Infernape. To make sure ours are the best of the best, we have to choose the right movesets to maximize their damage.

Since this entire evolution line uses Fire-type attacks, you want to focus on those. For the most part, these Pokémon will all use the same attacks. However, the list of best attacks can change as Pokémon evolve or in different weather conditions.


  • Fire Pokémon are boosted by Sunny and Clear weather.
  • Monferno and Infernape have two types, Fire and Fighting. Fighting attacks are known as some of the strongest attacks in the game, so you'll want to mix the two to optimize damage.
