'Pokemon GO' Emboar Guide
Emboar is Tepig's second evolution. This Fire and Fighting Pokemon first appeared in "Black and White Pokemon" versions in 2010. Emboar could be a contender in PvP fights but it's subpar compared to other candidates. It's in the PvE where it shines the most.
GamePur noted that players should not use Emboar outside the Ultra League. Since it is now a Fighting Pokemon after evolving from Pignite, it is now vulnerable to Psychic and Flying-type attacks besides Water and Ground moves. He is resistant to Steel, Ice, Dark, Bug, Fire, and Grass skillset.
It indeed has only four weaknesses yet it is not enough to say that it is viable for hard scenarios. Its defense is mediocre compared to other Pokemon of its type. Its attack might be decent but many could surpass its power. In short, he is a so-so-glass cannon in battle.
During battles, you might mix your team with durable Pokemon that will soak damage for Emboar. Through this, you can immediately switch if its hp is already red. It can learn Rock-type moves, but it seldom clicks with the rest of its moves.
In "Pokemon GO," Emboar might be a dangerous choice if you want to pursue competitive battles. Most likely, you could use it more effectively in PvE fights.
