    I just started using this set and it's great for any team needing a reliable celesteela counter and as a bulky physical tank. I ran the EVs and nature of Arcanine's XY UU tank set and put on firium z for a nuke.

    Arcanine @ Firium Z
    Ability: Intimidate
    Level: 50
    EVs: 248HP/8Atk/252Def
    Impish Nature
    -Flare Blitz
    -Will-o-Wisp
    -Extreme Speed
    -Morning Sun

    This Arcanine is super physically bulky. I usually lead it as a lead lure and stay in on threats like Gyarados and Garchomp after an intimidate, will-o-wisp them to cripple them for the rest of the game, and then switch out to something that can set up. Flare Blitz gives it a powerful attack, will-o-wisp cripples all of the dangerous sweepers running around that arcanine has no problem staying in on after an intimidate, extreme speed picks off weakens foes and cleans up late game, and morning sun keeps Arcanine healthy. This set has been very successful for me so I thought I'd share it. For people who like playing at a slower pace this set really slows the game down and frustrates offensive minded players who fear being burnt.
