Whenever you start playing a Pokemon game, the journey begins with picking one starter Pokemon from the three available choices, Water, Grass, or Fire.
Fire-type, which apparent trait is their reddish and bright color has been one of the most favorite types among players, both from older and newer generations.
Fire moves are super effective against Grass, Ice, Bug, and Steel-type Pokemon but are weak against opponents with Water, Ground, and Rock moves.
Aside from the existing strong offense, a Fire move could be further boosted by scorching weather, contributing more damage to their foes.
In this article, we will look at some of the best Fire-type Pokemon throughout the whole eight generations. Without further ado, let’s have a look at the list now.
As usual, Eevolutions will always dominate the chart no matter what type you are looking for. Aside from the adorable demeanor, the versatility of this Pokemon is no joke.
