Remember me Mr. PWNage. jk. lol. I am inclined to agree with this.
This is one thing about Speed Boost that will make Blaziken an excellent partner to Pokemon who cover his weaknesses. Breloom resists Ground and Water moves and would love the Speed passes from Blaziken. In theory it would be nice, not sure how it would actually work though.
Speed boosts works off of Blaziken's superior offensive and U-Turn ain't all bread and butter unless you using Scizor anyway.
Infernape will still probably be a better Lead, Scarfer, and Special Attacker though. I don't see Ape leaving OU. He still seems like a pretty solid Pokemon.
As short lived as our existence is we are purely,
The key to the future, a part in our peoples story,
Living unevenly privileged, yet equally-cursed,
Each one of us are the same when we sleep-in-a-hearse,
Don't ever let a mans wealth speak-for-his-worth,
Rather how he's remembered by the people-on-Earth.
