Fire-typePokémon are associated with heat, often in the form of flames or lava. Fire-type attacks often have a chance of causing the Burn status effect, though most if not all fire type pokemon are immune to it, which reduces the Attack statistic by half as well as taking away hit points each turn it is in effect.
Some Fire types are not affected by Fire type attacks because of an ability called Flash Fire, which negates all fire damage and raises the power of Fire-type moves at the same time.
Fire-type is weak against Water-types and ground types. Fire-types Pokémon are strong against Grass-types, Steeltypes,Ice and Bug.
