Tapu Fini prevents Kartana from being burned and Arcanine finishes off the Fire Water Grass core. Leipzig Regionals and Dallas Regionals both have many teams that use this combination of Pokemon and so i wanted to try it out.

I added Muk because Tapu Fini and Kartana provide a good match up vs. most if not all ground types and without a ground type attack Muk is hard to win against

I wanted a flying type because Arcanine, Marowak and Muk are all weak to ground types so adding a ground immune helps the team. Originally i tried putting a Garchomp but a Ground Immune, Special attacker with Intimidate is a better option for this spot on the team.
