Arcanine (Hisuian) is a Fire & Rock Pokémon which evolves from Growlithe. It is vulnerable to Ground, Water, Fighting and Rock moves. Arcanine's strongest moveset is Fire Fang & Rock Slide and it has a Max CP of 3,145.
"Arcanine is known for its high speed. It is said to be capable of running over 6,200 miles in a single day and night. The fire that blazes wildly within this Pokémon's body is its source of power."
Snarl is preferable for its high energy generation, letting Hisiuian Arcanine access its Charge Moves sooner. Fire Fang is the polar opposite, boasting powerful STAB damage with poor energy gains.
Wild Charge is the strongest Charge Move available to Hisuian Arcanine, though its harsh self-debuff makes it tricky to use. Rock Slide benefits from STAB, offers useful coverage, and costs a moderate amount of energy. Crunch lacks STAB and its typing isn't particularly useful to coverage Hisuian Arcanine's weaknesses. Flamethrower is surprisingly not impressive despite synergizing with a Fire-type Pokemon, due to its moderately high energy cost, but can still be chosen if needed.
