Flamethrower is a move with 90 base power (95 before Gen 6), 100 accuracy, and 15 PP. It's also available as a TM, which can be taught to Pokemon like Nidoking, Weezing, Tyranitar, Flygon, Togekiss, and even Slowbro. That's why I like Flamethrower.
As for Flare Blitz, I'm not a fan of that, because of the recoil. If I use a physical Fire type, I'd rather teach them Fire Punch, Flame Wheel, Blaze Kick, or Fire Fang.
honestly, i did not have any strategy for this competition of any kind cause i just want to get that shiny Mimikyu by attempting 3 battles and done, i'm sadly burned out from Pokemon games as of late, and just taking a break from it after completing the Pokedex's on all the Pokemon 3DS games, a nerve wreck for me.
