         – Suggested moveset

    • Will-O-Wisp
    • Flare Blitz
    • Morning Sun
    • Wild Charge
    Flare Blitz is Growlithe’s best attack, but remember that it has 1/3 recoil. Wild Charge has 1/4 recoil and is an Electric type move, so it can hit Water types for super-effective damage. Don’t use either of these moves if Growlithe is low on health. Morning Sun will allow Growlithe to recover health, and works well, but keep in mind that it is unreliable under other weather conditions.

         – Type defenses

    If your Growlithe has the Flash Fire ability, Fire type moves have no effect.
    All in all, Growlithe is a very good Pokémon, and is a great addition to your team.
