Infernape has a really good movepool but suffers from a serious case from four-moveslot syndrome. I must admit that I've used him on the past, and seriously wanted that it had 5 moveslots to fit Flare Blitz/Close Combat/Mach Punch/U-Turn/Stone Edge at same time... nowadays, there are better physical sweepers like Terrakion (even for sun teams, Terrakion is a better choice than Infernape, most of time), that don't suffer from rain. Actually, Fire-types in general aren't very good, with few exceptions, such as Heatran, which appreciates the fact that rain doesn't impede him from killing things like Ferrothorn and Scizor, and doesn't hinder him from doing his job as a Dragon killer.
