Infernape in Pokémon GO is the final evolution of the chimp Pokémon known as Chimchar. The Fire and Fighting-Type Pokémon had a brief moment in the spotlight Saturday as a Community Day offered players the chance to collect Infernapes with an exclusive new move. Has that new move upset its place in the meta? Here's what you need to know.

Infernape can typically learn Rock Smash, Fire Spin, Flamethrower, Solar Beam and Close Combat. Though the notion of a "best" moveset depends on a player's individual strategy, there is still some level of consensus about which moves are best to use with Infernape. The ideal moveset typically contains Fire Spin and Flamethrower on offense and Rock Smash and Flamethrower on defense.

The Chimchar Community Day that took place Saturday introduced Infernapes with Blast Burn. If you've got an Infernape with Blast Burn, you'll want to sub that move in for your offensive strike Flamethrower.
