Litleo looks good at first glance due to it having Flame Charge to boost its Speed and the ability Moxie to become a fearsome sweeper. However, because of its Normal-typing and poor bulk, it is easily taken care of by Timburr and Mienfoo. Litleo is outclassed by other Fire-types like Ponyta because of its better bulk, power and having a chance to burn physical Pokemon with its ability Flame Body.

This sets attempts to set up with Flame Charge to outpace most of the metagame and boosts its Attack from KOs thanks to Moxie. However, Litleo fails to do this because it relying on Firium Z to get the first Moxie boost as without a boost, it will fail to do major damage because of its weak Attack stat along with being vulnerable to priority due to its poor bulk and walled by Onix unless running Hidden Power Grass over Wild Charge. Litleo is outclassed by Ponyta, because of its higher attack stat, bulk, Speed and being able to heal itself with Morning Sun.
