Infernape has been my favorite fire starter since it came out. I used Blaziken frequently in Gen III, but I never felt compelled to do so, the other starters had their appeal too. Infernape on the other hand has been the only starter I beat any of the Gen IV games with.
As for Emboar, I want to use him, but I can't bring myself to choosing him over a Mijumaru or even Tsutarja. I don't like the design, and the stats just don't appeal to me. He shoulda been a plain fire type instead of fire/fighting, especially since the first gym isn't a rock type.
I actually really like Blaziken's and Emboar's whole line, and their designs are great imo. I never really liked Infernape or the rest of it's line as I'm not fond of most primates in general, and I don't particularly care about it being inspired by Sun Wukong/Son Goku. (nothing against the legend, but this particular inspiration is pretty bland)
