There, Flareon is now somewhat useful.

Many people will tell you Flareon has no good moves, but leave it to 4chan to find a way!

    …Is this legit?

  3. smashpro1 on September 21st, 2011 8:27 pm

    But, I love Flareon. :.(

  4. Shawn Handyside on September 21st, 2011 8:28 pm

    Iunno!

  5. shadow649 on September 21st, 2011 8:36 pm

    4chan is always legit. (sarcasm)
    Always.

    but is flareon really that bad? not many fire moves but still how bad could it be?

  6. Inshushi on September 21st, 2011 8:36 pm

    No one said you weren't allowed to Love.

  7. Mask of Problem? on September 21st, 2011 8:36 pm

    Troll Science at work here….

    It's most powerful STAB (moves that get a 1.5x boost) are Fire Fang and Flame wheel. Those are 65 and 50 base power.

    Compared to every other fire type out there, that's terrible.

  10. Captain Flavor on September 21st, 2011 8:40 pm

    But… but… it was funny when a 130 base attack fire pokemon couldn't use Flare Blitz! Now I'm curious to see if this is actually possible.

  11. Vabolo on September 21st, 2011 8:41 pm

    It's as terrible as stealing forty cakes (that's four tens!).

  12. Ovahdrive on September 21st, 2011 8:42 pm

    Trainer sent our Flareon.
    Ace Trainer laughs.
    Flareon used Flare Blitz
    Ace Trainer: щ(゚Д゚щ)

  13. Vabolo on September 21st, 2011 8:43 pm

    Earthquake, FlareBlitz, DragonDance and Superpower on a Flareon, bitches.

  14. Tobikun on September 21st, 2011 8:45 pm

    Meeeeeeediiiiiiiic! This man's mind has been blown!

  15. Tobikun on September 21st, 2011 8:46 pm

    Way to go 4chan you've found a way to make Flareon useful……but can it learn fly?! On a completely unrelated note that Cromartie High School picture in the responses below the explanation made my day.

  16. Skrist on September 21st, 2011 8:47 pm

    This is more legit than 4chan: Getting an action replay: changing the TMs to Judgement, Roar of Time, Spacial Rend, and Dark Void, giving them to Flareon… more legit than 4chan.

  17. Skrist on September 21st, 2011 8:48 pm

    I'll stick with my shitty Guts Flareon with fire fang and protect TYVM!

  18. MoG on September 21st, 2011 8:48 pm

    …What if Charizard knew fly as well?!

    <img src="http://img2.smackjeeves.com/images/uploaded/comics/a/9/a92187c52ZH7o.png&quot; width="400" height="251">

    …Not quite what i was expecting.

  19. Vabolo on September 21st, 2011 8:49 pm

    Sorry!

    I DID NOT MEAN
    TO BLOW YOUR MIND!
    BUT THAT SHIT HAPPENS TO ME
    ALL THE TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME!

    *sweet-ass guitar solo*

  20. Tobikun on September 21st, 2011 8:49 pm

    :'D it's….it's GLORIOUS!

  21. Skrist on September 21st, 2011 8:50 pm

    Cool… now teach Wobbuffett more than Counter, Mirror Coat, Safeguard, and Destiny Bond without Wynaut's moves!

  22. Tobikun on September 21st, 2011 8:50 pm

    0.0 can we please give this man more internets?

  23. Skrist on September 21st, 2011 8:52 pm

    I would… but I sold them all FOR A STOUT SHAKO!!! TT_TT

  24. Vabolo on September 21st, 2011 8:53 pm

    Yes. Yes you can.

  25. Vabolo on September 21st, 2011 8:53 pm

    All it needs now is a poptart…

  26. Vabolo on September 21st, 2011 8:55 pm

    Do as you wish. We, on the other hand, shall ride. TO VICTORY!

  27. Tobikun on September 21st, 2011 8:58 pm

    Anything is possible when you smell like Red and not Ash!

  28. Guppy06 on September 21st, 2011 8:58 pm

    No, you are definitely not allowed to "love" your Pokemon. There have been entirely too many posts here on that subject already.

    It's a crime in all 50 states!

  29. Vabolo on September 21st, 2011 8:59 pm

    I can teach it to love.

  30. Tobikun on September 21st, 2011 9:01 pm

    It's still legal in Tijuana and the U.S. Major Outlying Islands.

  31. Vabolo on September 21st, 2011 9:14 pm

    *whistling*

  32. AManWithACloak on September 21st, 2011 9:15 pm

    Uh… can't it learn most fire and normal moves?

  33. AManWithACloak on September 21st, 2011 9:16 pm

    You think that's awesome? Someone graffitied a picture of Han Solo on the side of the local game store.

  34. Vabolo on September 21st, 2011 9:26 pm

    As long as they have less than sixty-five base power, yes.

  35. AuraBlaze on September 21st, 2011 9:29 pm

    OBJECTION! According to my research, Eevee cannot learn Miminc! Just look at the link below! Sorry if I've killed the mood with this.

  36. KungFuDeli on September 21st, 2011 9:33 pm

    Am I high?

  37. Ovahdrive on September 21st, 2011 9:33 pm

    Should show it flying by a Kangaskhan using Sky Attack.

    Edit: Also, I was bored:

  38. Skrist on September 21st, 2011 9:34 pm

    I've seen things in pokemon that would make Gary Oak cry… highly unbelievable but it does happen.

  39. Skrist on September 21st, 2011 9:35 pm
  40. Drjolt on September 21st, 2011 9:36 pm

    AWWW YEAHHHHH

  41. Releasia on September 21st, 2011 9:38 pm

    AuraBlaze, actually Eevee can learn Mimic in Leaf Green/Fire Red as noted via the Move Tutor. http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Move_tutor

  42. Caelun_Niveus on September 21st, 2011 9:41 pm

    Further, Flareon's growths give it a high Physical attack stat, but a lackluster Special Attack. Only Fire Fang and FLAME CHARGE (as of gen 5) can it learn that are both, and even then only gen 4 on could they count as physical

    Yes, only two moves in the game it naturally learns it can make full use of.

    The above strat puts another physical fire move in Flare's arsenal

  43. Haite on September 21st, 2011 9:43 pm

    Videos or it didn't happened.

  44. Haite on September 21st, 2011 9:45 pm
  45. Inshushi on September 21st, 2011 10:09 pm

    And as we all know, what happens in Tijuana keeps your kidneys.

  46. BTSnoogans on September 21st, 2011 10:14 pm

    So that's where my kidneys went.

  47. EonofAeon on September 21st, 2011 10:17 pm

    NOOB THAT'S WORTH 2 REFINED!

  48. CriticalQuit on September 21st, 2011 10:25 pm

    Don't give poor Flareon false hope! I like Flareon but I never use it, and I'm rather sad it'll never be useful…

  49. TheInsaneWombat on September 21st, 2011 10:25 pm

    <img src="http://emotibot.net/pix/266.jpg"&gt;

    That is all.

  50. SirNumel on September 21st, 2011 10:30 pm

    Hence, teach it Mimic in FR/LG.

  51. AManWithACloak on September 21st, 2011 10:31 pm

    No fire blast? No hyper beam? What the FUCK Gamefreak?

  52. OrionX on September 21st, 2011 10:38 pm

    Well, it can learn those, but Flareon excels in Attack, rather than Special Attack.
    It'd be like teaching Thunder to a Tauros.

  53. Skrist on September 21st, 2011 10:43 pm

    There is also Tyranitar and Tauros with surf. Could do something… stupid like that.

    Evolve…..eevee?

  59. Skarge on September 21st, 2011 11:25 pm

    there there

  60. MasterLuigi452 on September 21st, 2011 11:25 pm

    Wait. Wut?

  61. Jimmy on September 21st, 2011 11:26 pm

    OMIGOSH THIS IS AMAZING!!!

    You're now 20% cooler.

  62. Zipper on September 21st, 2011 11:27 pm

    Rage glitch

    In Generation IV, if a transformed Pokémon uses Rage and causes the message “Rage is building” to appear, then defeats or captures the opponent, the Pokémon will permanently learn the moves it knew while transformed.

    Bulbapedia- http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Transform_

  63. Skarge on September 21st, 2011 11:30 pm

    well I'm back
    this not change my opinion about flareon. I'll still have 5 dragonite and a mewtwo in my party, though

  64. Skarge on September 21st, 2011 11:32 pm

    Where's your Arceus now?

  65. AManWithACloak on September 21st, 2011 11:42 pm

    http://pokemondb.net/move/all
    http://pokemondb.net/pokedex/flareon
    Out of the 9 physical fire attacks IN THE ENTIRE POKEMON UNIVERSE,
    Flareon can only learn 2 of them, both of which are in the bottom three of power.
    This is just sad.

  66. TheTopHatKid on September 21st, 2011 11:43 pm

    And that's terrible.

  67. MorningMoon on September 21st, 2011 11:47 pm

    Hey! That's not true! I am from Tijuana and it is many things! A drug hole, a violence crib, a donkey-paint hoist, an overpriced tourist trap, a con artist heaven, a pro-poke-furry place but never a Kratos meme website!
    …wait, i got lost, we were talking about what Halolz used to be, no?

    I don't know… ARE YOU?!

  71. EonofAeon on September 22nd, 2011 12:17 am

    DID HE ALSO SAY IT WAS FREE NINETY NINE? BECAUSE THAT'D BE BOB.

    BOB IS A CHEAPSKATE D-BAG.

    I might be, I mean… this post

  75. Zyquux on September 22nd, 2011 1:48 am

    My guess is that it would be more like Azula's Jet Propulsion Firebending but out its mouth….or something…

  76. Zyquux on September 22nd, 2011 1:50 am

    Dragonite? Meet my good friend Ice Beam.

  77. Cryocon on September 22nd, 2011 2:48 am

    I'm sorry but that is false, mimic and transform do not work that way as they will cancel after the end of the battle. Nice try though.

  78. mascot1063 on September 22nd, 2011 4:22 am

    OR! You can evolve a Flare Blitz Eevee into something that isn't Flareon B)

  79. Mr.Bla on September 22nd, 2011 4:46 am

    I’m so tempted to do this

  80. Dimomarg on September 22nd, 2011 6:00 am

    I actually looked at the Bulbapedia page that Anon linked to, and I've gotta say, we need to use this somehow.

  81. SUTBComics on September 22nd, 2011 7:07 am

    If this is true this is the greatest discovery of our time. Nations will fall and Arceus himself will cry as our new god Flareon lays waste to the unclean lot.

  82. Guts_Pein on September 22nd, 2011 8:27 am

    AND WE SHALL RULE THE WORLD!!!

  83. Vabolo on September 22nd, 2011 8:50 am

    The Game Corner? :D

  84. AuraBlaze on September 22nd, 2011 9:02 am

    Aw. Don't be such a baby. Minds grow back.

  85. werewolfsfury on September 22nd, 2011 9:02 am

    it says that it must be some type of glitch

  87. Junocis on September 22nd, 2011 12:51 pm

    I submit this as evidence to the contrary. rel="nofollow"> rel="nofollow">

  88. Skarge on September 22nd, 2011 2:01 pm

    Read the Bulbapedia article again.

  92. GenCasar on September 22nd, 2011 5:17 pm

    Now all we need to do is figure out how to teach a Dragonite how to use Barrier, and all will be right in the world.

  93. ProfessorLuigi on September 22nd, 2011 5:30 pm

    Yes, but will it blend?

  94. ProfessorLuigi on September 22nd, 2011 5:32 pm

    That reminds me of a time where I got lucky at the slots. I was down to my last 3 coins, and I decided "Screw it, I'll just use my last 3 coins" So I did, and I rooled 3 lucky 7s.
    Then it started raining Golems.

  95. Psycroc on September 22nd, 2011 7:30 pm

    Holy Fucking Shit.

    In a good way

  100. Phoenix on May 10th, 2012 10:58 am

    Makes me said I traded my shiny adamant Eevee to my White version already…

    I can't believe game freak would do this to poor Flareon, look at what we have to resort to for a good move on him/her.

  101. Matricule88 on November 19th, 2012 5:46 pm

    And what do you do about the STAB?
