Flareon

Flareon, The Flame Pokémon. It has a flame bag inside its body. After inhaling deeply, it blows out flames of nearly 3,100 degrees Fahrenheit. When storing thermal energy in its body, its temperature could soar to over 1600 degrees. It stores some of the air it inhales in its internal flame pouch, which heats it to over 3,000 degrees. It fluffs out its fur collar to cool down its body temperature.

Battle Moveset

A Good Moveset for Flareon would have to be this:

Attacks:

Shadow Ball
Flamethrower
Quick Attack
Hidden Power Ground/Fighting OR Return OR Iron Tail

Items Attached:

Leftovers

Preferred Nature:

Lonely

Strategy Using Flareon

Curse should be included if you know you're battling a special sweeper/tank that can't do much damage.
Flareon doesn't have the speed to be like many other sweepers.
Its defenses, HP and speed is low, so therefore EV's into defenses and speed would be a waste. Since its equipped with Leftovers, EV's into HP would make logical sense. This set is a mixed sweeping set, due to it having a limited movepool. If you can't get HP ground/Fighting, or return on Flareon, you may be stuck with using Iron tail.
Choice band could be a good replacement over Leftovers, though Leftovers is more effective at allowing Flareon to heal whatever damage it recieves from special sweepers (its defenses however, makes it an easy target for physical sweepers with moves like Earthquake and Rock slide/HP rock)
Flamethrower gains the boost from STAB and Flash fire to be a physical wall counter such as Skarmory and Steelix. Quick attack is included to make up for Flareon's lack of speed and it may need to use Quick attack if it wants to have any chance of defeating a tough opponent that plans to endure/reversal.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Attack and HP for Flareon with any remaining in Special Defense

Strategy Against Flareon

Flareon has great offensive stats, one being above average (Special) and one being well above average (Physical), however, like all Eeveelutions, it wasn't blessed with a great offensive move pool. On top of that, it also wasn't blessed with the ability to hit fast.
- Most commonly used Physical Sweepers have speed on their side, so use one of them and a super effective move *hint: Earthquake* and Flareon should fall with ease. However, avoid attacking Flareon's Special Defence since it is level with that of a special wall.

Contest Moveset

A good Contest Moveset for Flareon would have to be this for the Beauty Contest best with Modest, Mild, Rash or Quiet Nature:
