Infernape is a Fire & Fighting Pokémon which evolves from Monferno. It is vulnerable to Flying, Ground, Water and Psychic moves. Infernape's strongest moveset is Fire Spin & Blast Burn and it has a Max CP of 2,683.
"It tosses its enemies around with agility. It uses all its limbs to fight in its own unique style."
Fire Spin is preferred for its considerably better energy gains compared to Rock Smash, though both moves offer the same STAB damage output.
Blast Burn is a legacy move obtained during Chimchar's Community Day, and is a direct upgrade over Flamethrower in both damage output and energy cost. If you don't have the former, then the latter is still okay for providing Fire-type coverage. Close Combat takes just a tad more energy to pull off and also has STAB, making it another worthwhile move for its wide coverage.
Infernape has no real place in the Great League. All of its notable wins are better handled by other Pokemon, and it has too many losses to be worth considering.
Once again, Infernape has no place in the Ultra League due to holding no niche of its own.
Perhaps Candela should re-think her Master League team...? At least until it learns Blast Burn.
