Arcanine @ Life Orb
Nature: Timid / Modest
252 SpA 252 Spe 4 SpD
-Flamethrower / Fire Blast
-Hidden Power Grass / Electric
-Dragon Pulse
-Morning Sun

This set works best under Sun. If you want a Sunny Day setup on Arcanine:

Arcanine @ Leftover / Life Orb
Nature: Timid / Modest
192 HP / 248 SpA / 4 SpD / 64 Spe
-Sunny Day
-Fire Blast / Flamethrower
-Solar Beam
-Morning Sun

If you then decide to use an Arcanine that is Physically Offensive:

Arcanine @ Life Orb
Nature: Jolly / Adamant
72 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD / 176 Spe
-Flare Blitz
-Crunch/Wild Charge
-Close Combat/Morning Sun
B2/W2 it can learn outrage

Two how can it learn Morning Sun?. I dont have the Espeon with it to breed

Any suitable substitution for Close Combat, Seemingly that needs to be bred as well?
