This is what I've been thinking about lately. For example, my Nidoking learned Thrash at the level of 23 after evolving. It didn't have to be Nidoking before that level.
The problem with Arcanine and Growlithe... Arcanine is better in stats, and Growlithe learns Flamethrower at Lv. 50. What's better? Flamethrower? Or a strong pokemon? You choice. you can try evolving Growlithe at Lv. 50 after it learns the move.
Also you could teach it another fire move. Example? I don't have one right now...
