I don't think the current analysis does justice to the Fire Monkey. I think it should emphasize the difference between it and Emboar, namely faster, U-Turn, Taunt, Nasty Plot and SR.
To differentiated from Simisear, Monferno has a Fighting-type STAB, U-Turn, Iron Fist. Also, Monferno should have Iron Fist to help boost its damage.
Ill be honest, though, I've never used Monferno.
