Type Fire

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

This one of the most recognized type of Pokémon, since one of the three Starter Pokémon has this type.

Fire-type moves are based in attacks of this element, with the control of it and most of them can leave the status Burn.

They are passionate and some have bad behavior, they live in caves, volcanoes and arid zones. However, there are some other Pokémon that tend to live in green areas, like Ponyta and Rapidash. There are others that are very docile, like Growlithe, Vulpix and their respective evolutions.

Most of these Pokémon release fire from their own body, and apparently this doesn't bother them, and the flames can either grow or lower depending on the Pokémon's health and/or mood.

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; and Malva, a member of the Kalos Pokémon League.

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.
  • The Dragon type resists them because in ancient legends, dragons weren't affected by nature's principal forces (plants, water, fire and electricity).
