Type Fire

The Fire type (ほのおタイプ Honō taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.

It is notable for being one of the three Starter types, forming a perfectly triangular relationship with Grass and Water.

Fire-type moves are based on attacks of fire itself, and most of them can leave the status Burn, Fire types are also immune to being Burned, regardless of the type of move used that would have inflicted a Burn.

Fire has notably fewer species compared to the other Starter types, due to a lack of natural phenomena that can be described as fire - the Slugma line, Numel line, Magmar line and Torkoal are the closest representations. Some Fire-type species are based on land animals known for their predatory instincts, such as Pyroar, Arcanine and Heatmor. The Vulpix and Fennekin lines are both based on Japanese folklore linking species of fox with fire, while curiously, the first five generations of Fire-type starter, as well as the Ponyta, Houndour and Pansear lines, are all based on animals from the Chinese zodiac.

Famous Fire-type Pokémon Trainers include Blaine, the seventh Kanto Gym Leader; Flannery, the fourth Hoenn Gym Leader; Flint, the third member of the Sinnoh Pokémon League; Chili, one of the three Gym Leaders of Striaton City in Unova; Malva, a member of the Kalos Pokémon League; and Kiawe, an Akala Island Trial Captain in Alola.

Relations with other types

  • They're strong against the Bug type because it's easy to burn an insect, and it's difficult for it to survive.
  • They're strong against the Grass type because fire consume plants easily, and even though the fire is extinguished, the plants are damaged heavily.
  • They're strong against the Ice type because fire and heat melt ice.
  • They're strong against the Steel type because fire is used to melt down metals.
  • They're weak against the Ground type because if thrown ground over a fire, this suffocates and dies.
  • They're weak against the Rock type because fire is easily extinguished if thrown rocks over.
  • They're weak against the Water type because water extinguishes it.
  • They resist the Fairy type because traditionally, fairies live in forests, and fire destroys the forests. Fire, along with steel, is also considered manmade, which is anathema to fairies.
  • The Dragon type resists them because in ancient legends, dragons weren't affected by nature's principal forces (plants, water, fire and electricity).
