The Top Ten

Charizard is the best. He alone owned blastoise which is a water type pokemon. He also beat artocuno and even mewtwo himself said that charizard is a very powerful pokemon. There are also charizards in the charicific valley where all of them are more than three times the size of ashes charizard and they beat him in one hit.
CHARIZARD IS A DUAL TYPED POKEMON (FIRE/FLYING) which in fact is strong against fighting types like infernape and blaziken.. And is my favorite pokemon... CHARIZARD IS AWEESOME! AND COOL, BRAVE, POWERFUL WITH DRAGON TYPE FEATURES!
Well I use use charizard in my team and that is only because I think its way cooler than arcanine, but with arcanines physical attack and speed they are I guess equal
[Newest]I love Charizard! :D
More comments about Charizard

Blaziken should be FIRST! He is way better and is rated uber on smogon. Plus, he has the ability speed boost which practically makes him a one man team!
Blaziken is awesome with the moves brave bird, sky uppercut and the best is blaze kick, I used him in emerald and I beated all the elite four with him. Blaziken beated a charizard last time I checked(don't mean to be rude) in ash vs harrison. I used every fire starter, blaziken the best.
I actually managed to solo the champion with this epic starter! It's also a dual type fighting and fire to add up the awesomeness
[Newest]Zard sucks end of story


More comments about Blaziken

By the way this is purely based on the game, cause I don't care about what happend in the anime, because charizard beat blastoise in the johto league but in the game "blastoise used hydro pump" and the end. Anyway back on track, is arcanine the best fire type? Yes and I can give you plenty of reasons why. Firstly it has access to STAB flare blitz that can demolish anything that's weak to fire types. Water types gonna try stop ya, arcanine blows water types away with wild charge. And don't get me started on max happiness return. Arcanine max happiness with 252 evs in attack and speed and holding silk scarf can wipe the floor with almost any poke that stands in his way, and if the opponent has a focus sash and just somehow miraculously survived the return, no sweat, just finish em off with extreme speed. My arcanine using the set above always gets me at least one KO because its just so good. It's a million light years ahead of that bird man blaziken and that flying salamander charizard. One word sums this Pokemon up, EPIC.
Ever since... Well WAY before I played the games, this one was my favorite. I always thought he was a legendary and the design was awesome enough to make it a legendary. After I played games like Heart Gold and the Black and White series so far so on, I seemed to forget about him during these times... But when I wanted to pick my favorite Pokemon (not favorite fire type Pokemon) this one came to mind. yes, I could have picked CHarizard or Blaziken because those were the next best fire Pokemon, but starters? Give me a break. Arcanine was MEANT to be a legendary and always will be in my belief and has awesome moveset, great design, and the stats? Well... how about ALMOST as good as Dragonite, Garchomp, Tyranitar, etc. 555 is a CRAZY number Charizard and Blaziken WISH they had. What can you not like about this beast?
I think this Pokemon is awesome, judge by it's move set and speed. I can't compare with other Pokemon, I think all are the same if we train them properly. Just train Arcanine well and he will be a great Pokemon, I know charizard is much cooler, I agree if he in the first place. I must agree to vote Arcanine in the 2nd place, So stop comparing these so-called Pokemon.
[Newest]Arcanine was meant to be a legendary, so his stats are SUPER high. Also, he is the best non legendary fire type, and relatively easy to get.
More comments about Arcanine

A Fire and a Fighting Type is enough for me!
Infernape is defintley badass. Paul lost a really good pokemon too bad. Infernape overall is beast.
It's the best fighting pokemon
It can also kick charizard's butt!
[Newest]Infernape is the best of all fire types
More comments about Infernape

It comes from possibly the cutest pokemon... And transforms into some beast! Truly awesome pokemon! May not be a classic like Charizard, (Who rocks), but it's still cool as hell!
I have a typhlosion and he beat the crud out of 7 feraligatrs in a row, and they were higher level then my typhlosion by at least 10! It is so cute when it is a cynaquil! Yo
I've won the Elite Four (Gold Ver) with this pokemon alone, trust me! It was level 83 so yeah. GOO TYPHLOSION!
[Newest]Mainly because the starter is Cyndaquil
More comments about Typhlosion

HELLO! He's Legendary! And AWESOME!
According to research, when Entei roars, a volcano will erupt on the other side of the world.


If you have entei you have everything great pokemon, charizard is a real pushover compared to entei, stupid list. WHOEVER MADE THIS LIST IS NUTS THEY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT, GO ENTEI!
[Newest]Ho oh is much better than moltres and entei and all fire type legends

Ho-oh's base stat is 680 - higher than any Fire pokemon in the first four generation's of games (unless one counts Arceus with a Fire Plate hold item), easily the strongest Fire Pokemon in battle, the only downside is it's rarity which is limited to Gold/Silver, Colosseum and Heart Gold/Soul Silver outside of event only conditions.
I think you'll find Ho-oh and Lucia can be found in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. But I agree Ho-oh is pretty strong
Ho-oh's stats fit his legendary status and is a deadly sweeper even against other legendaries. And with the new gen with resistance to fairies and stealth rock nerfed with defog he has become a top uber, which even Reshiram can't brag about. Sacred Fire is arguably the best fire attack in the game and whatever it doesn't burn he can hit them with Brave Bird, indeed, very few Pokemons are safely switch into Ho-oh, even Kyogre doesn't like taking Brave Bird. Rock Arceus is perhaps the closest thing to a counter but even then Ho-oh can also wield EQ to hurt it. Stealth Rock will probably always be Ho-oh greatest threat and as long as you keep it out it is virtually unstoppable.

So yeah, Ho-oh is the only Pokemon I can think of that is a top uber Pokemon and also a fire type. Reshiram, Blaziken, Charizard and every other fire Pokemon all fall short to the noble phoenix who dominates the fire Pokemons.
Almost everything about this guy is cool, he is the 4th strongest Pokemon, he can learn hundreds of different Fire moves, and his Sacred Fire can own any legen including Celebi, absolute awesome Pokemon
[Newest]What ever he is a legendary and charizard is not then also he defeated blastoise a water type and articuno a ice type legendary

It's a legendary pokemon. It's fire and dragon type! Does the name vast white pokemon mean nothing to you people? Maybe you guys belong in a mental hospital. And with Arceus, he's not a fire type. He can be but that's not his true type.


How is, nt reshiram in the top four he should be number 2 after ho-oh him and lugia are number five out of all the pokemon judged by the pokemon creator and hello he, s a legendary
Resharim speaks for itself... A legendary Fire/Dragon pokemon... That is just epic. It's special move... Blue Flame is Epic!
[Newest]He is the best fire Pokemon

Ninetales is the only fire type pokemon (besides Vulpix) that can have the hidden ability drought.
On pokemon white it is WICKED
It evolves from a cute pokemon and turns into another cutting edge Pokemon that is cute but WICKED!
Ninetails is one of the cuter fire types, and is extremely strong. Love ninetails!
[Newest]Ninetales is amazing! I have a shiny ninetales, it's so beautiful and powerful! I love Ninetales! It's my favorite Pokemon ever other than Vulpix and more Pokemon

I loved using magmortar on my black 2 version and on Pokemon X. It just obliterated everything in his way.
This pokemon that comes from the 4th gen is the best non-legendary fire pokemon ever! With its super amazing special attack stats, it can send pokemons flying into their own grave. If a pokemon fights with Magmortar with Psychic, Flamethrower/PPupped Fire Blast, Thunder, and Hyper Beam, they are digging their own graves.
Come on. you guys don't know the true power behind magmortar. plus, he's better than charzard. he can own him with just a few thunderbolts. WHY IS IT ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE. should at least be in the top 5.
[Newest]He looks like a clown, but he has a Base Stat of 540, which is almost as high as Arcanine's Base Stat of 555.

The Contenders

One of the most powerful sweepers in the game. Quiver dance combined with awesome stats scare anything away besides heatran. My personal set is quiver dance, fiery dance (good to use if you want a boost but can't use quiver dance, or to revenge kill), bug buzz (raw power), and psychic, because that provides near perfect coverage (excluding heatran) well, that's my volcarona. Thanks!
Volcarona has VERY high special attack, and as a result it is very good. One strategy I like is using a Volbeat, have it use Tail Glow, followed by substitute, and finish it off with Baton Pass. Then I let Volcarona do the rest of the work.
I raised my volcarona from an egg, and it hurts me to see him this low on the list
[Newest]He has a Base Stat of 550, but I never thought he was very good. That is why he is #6. Also, he has too many weaknesses, being a Bug type in all.

Cool it's a flaming birdy. Laugh out loud!
Yeah, so uh, this personally I think its better than everything ever
Moltres - A rare, unique and super-powerful flaming bird. Much cooler than Ho-oh! 'enough said.


[Newest]Moltres sucks a Emboar could beat it

Its awesome because it automatically brings you victory
Victini is the best Pokemon ever it has cuteness but with a sweet heart of fire plus it's the toughest Pokemon of all. Time

Victini isn't fair. It's special ability (victory star) raises your entire teams accuracy. Plus, it's extremely small and adorable but a complete TANK of a Pokemon.
[Newest]It's overpowered, and it's name even offers assured Victory

Come on now, internet. Houndoom is a beast. Use nasty plot a few times, make sure it has good speed and boom, flamethrower and dark pulse make it pretty much an instant two-hit kill, if not a one-hit KO. Houndoom wins.
are you kidding me? houndoom pwns charizard! its got cool typing, great move set and amazing sp. attack! how can he not kick ass?
It's way better than ninetales plus it looks cool.
If it has flash fire ability then it can even troll Typhlosion.
Just keep it away from fighting type.
[Newest]The best fire Pokemon ever because of its dark type

Rapidash should work for Garden Force, literally the most retarded Pokemon, in this one episode Ash is naughtily slapping one on the bottom and call it rude names, whilst groaning furiously.
I agree with the garden force comment, the dapper gentleman who submitted that comment, really knows his pokemon.
[Newest]This was my fire type of my 3man team in Pearl. Sorry Palkia, but this horse isn't messing around

It is a really strong pokemon and it is both fire and fighting type and it can defeat charizard any day because if it just uses stone edge charizard is gonecase
It's so big and awesome looking, plus it's attack is insane and has a great amount of health
He's boss. He can smash anything to pieces. He could almost beat Arceus! That's all it is.
[Newest]Really very strong Pokemon. But not stronger than ARCEUS

I think Flareon is cool because it evolves from Eevee and Eevee can evolve into seven different types of pokemon. Flareon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon.
Thank you for reading this!
So strong and better looking than all of them besides Arcanine,
Blaziken, Ninetales and Entei
I think Flareon is AWESOME. It's so cute and fluffy! Not to mention it's monstrously high attack stat. It's definitely the favorite out of all the Eevee evolutions. It can also learn lots of different moves, and it has FLASH FIRE for an ability. Let's see what happens when other fire types blow fire on it!
[Newest]Hey, it's a flaming dog. Whats not to like?

Why isn't this awesome guy higher? Everything I have read about chandelure in black 2 is good. And seriously I don't blame them. So here I was evolving my lampent into chandelure because his design is awesome. Afterwards Soulblaze helped exponentially. He could have destroyed every elite four if I didn't have the decency to let my others gain exp. He delivered the winning blow to the champion's Pokemon every time, saving my butt again and again. He is way better than that stupid gengar.
This guy should be #5, or something, not 15, he is one of my favorite pokemon, he is my favorite fire, non legendary
Has the best base special attack out of all the non legendaries. Also has ghost as a second type. Its moveset is varied so you can counter attack its weaknesses pretty well.
[Newest]Man this guy is the best hyper beam killed the black 2 legendary 1 move

Being a fire/psychic, Delphox, if used correctly, can beat Blaziken, Infernape, and Emboar. If it's taught the right moves Delphox would make an excellent member of any team as long as you have Pokemon to cover its weaknesses "water, dark, ghost, ground, and rock". I suggest teaching it the moves Blast Burn, Overheat, Psychic, and Solar Beam all of which are high powered attacks and they help to nullify one of its weaknesses.
Delphox is the best fire type starter it can beat charizard easily
Who doesn't like Delphox? He is like Pokemon Harry Potter!
[Newest]It beat GYARADOS for me! Best fire type ever!

I won the battle tower and pokemon league only by the torkoal it is awesome
He's a flaming turtle. There's no reason not to like him.
Torkoal is the boss.

In the first appearance of Magmar in the anime, it comes out of the lava, LAVA!
Come on guys, every us see the fight againts charizard in the series. He lose because Charizard was the Ash's pokemon and Ash NEVER CAN LOSE
He is my favorite pokemon of all time, I like him more than deoxys or Zekrom or Even mew or arceus. Magmar can own poeple with the moveset of
Fire Punch
Iron Tail

So eat on that!

HEATRAN THE TANK - why this title? - This Pokemon, the only fire/steel type, has five resistances 25% damage, 2 immunities 0%, and four regular times 2 resistances 50%... Offensively this is the only Pokemon with Magma Storm, the only partial-trap move with 100+ which lets me switch and murder any Pokemon.

More facts- Learns Dragon Pulse for coverage. PERFECT STATS! 91 HP (386 life), 106 definitely (342), and 106 special definitely (342) makes his life to defense 1:1 which means it has the highest the potential of taking hits on both sides with its total stats.
Fire steel... What more could you want
Got heatran on my black 2 he was the BEAST! He had the best moveset I've probably seen and he's a Legendary 22nd place doesn't suit him.

I think chimchar could kick every body ass with his flamethrower
He's amazing and cute and his last evolvement is the best
Why is this even here?

You suck at making lists
Monferno is a fire-monkey! Plus he is as boss. It got me through diamond and pearl elite four and has to be my 3rd fave Pokemon (2nd being Delphox and 1st being Quilava! ) My moveset for Monferno was Mach Punch, Dig, Flame Thrower and Flare Blitz!
Monferno can dig andcan learn mega punch.

Cyndaquil is my favorite starter if you look at my comment for quilava he can learn blast burn for crying out loud!
My favorite starter it's so great
Cyndaquill is just so cute! It can learn blastburn! Blast burn is the most powerful fire type move EVER! Plus with the fire on its back make it look totallyAWESOME

Growlithe is epic! It's cute, strong, fast, loyal, powerful, friendly and just generally amazing-what more could you want from a Pokemon?
He's so cute nothing bad about him just an all round good Pokemon what more do could you ask for
This guy took down charmander like he was not even there

A good fire/ground combo
Its really cool and good and it also was a wide variety of moves and it has VOLCANOS ON HIS BACK and he also has a mega!

Talonflame is an all round beast being a fire and flying type he can learn such moves as "flame charge" and "fire blast" plus it has all round good base stats and speed plus in the anime it look like a boss using fire blast
Has amazing speed, and is pretty much the new charizard. Maybe even better.
Really good bird starter

Arceus. The God Pokemon. Is at 25. If there was no Arceus, there would be no Pokemon. Simple.
Arceus is really over powered and will just kick your butt
He is kinda a normal type

why do you people not like posting comments on this little guy. He's so cute and funny with a great personality. Besides if you guys like "charizard" so much why is poor charmander #14 huh. tell me now
I think charmander's cute!
I think that the charmander family is the best
[Newest]I think charmander should be on 13 or 14 not on 31.



Torchic is so cute! In the anime May's Torchic is a little weaker. I don't know if Torchic learn Flamethrower in Ginji rescue team. Is it in Tm itself or WHAT? It can learn flying type moves. But how to learn fire spin. He's the REAL DEAL!

You jerks Quilava is the best! He is cute, cool and come on he has flipping flames that come out of his back and head! How is it 33rd place?!
My Quilava had flamethrower, Lava Plume, Quick Attack and Flame Wheel! #boss
How is this #55 it's better then cyndaquil in a few ways
[Newest]He is just great

Fennekin totally cute! Adorable in first form strong and powerful in others. IT ROCKS THIS CITY. AS GREAT AS HELL!
Shes awesome with her psychic
Fennikan may not be the best starter pokémon in X and Y, but Victini (the victory pokémon) shares the fire/psychic duo type. It could be more than coincidence! Many fire and psychic moves are sp. Attacks and upon evolving into Delphox sp. Attack stat greatly increases. An idea is to use hypnosis so your enemy is asleep and then attack with dream eater until your oppoment no longer is asleep. To finish it up use blast burn or mystic fire.

How is this only number 34? Have you SEEN Darmanitan's stats?
For a start, it holds an outstanding 140 base attack. It's defensive stats are OK, standing at 105/55/55, but it's better than Blissey.
It has the great Ability Sheer Force, which increases the move power of any move with a secondary effect by 30%, but those effects don't happen. You may be thinking that's not good, but with Darmanitan it REALLY IS!

Fire Punch/Fire Fang is a good starting move for it. It goes to pretty high power levels, but it does remove the effects of burn/flinch. But then again, they would probably have a Safeguard up their sleeves.

Headbutt is also a decent choice for it. Removes flinch, but powers it up.
With Belly Drum, it gets even better.
Rock Slide is another good move for it, removes flinch but adds the power.
Oh, but Flare Blitz. It grows to INSANITY with Belly Drum and Choice Band/Life Orb/Muscle Band. It removes the effect of burning (but however doesn't remove the recoil damage).

But I'm not done. Have you seen Zen Mode for it? I'm not kidding here, if it has the Hidden Ability Zen Mode at half HP it transforms into Zen Mode Darmanitan. And it, is super good!

Its HP stat is still 105, but it reaches 105 for each of its defensive stats. 105/105/105=Real good.
Its speed goes down to 55 and its attack stat goes to 30, but it impressively god up to 140 BASE SPECIAL ATTACK!
You don't think it's good? Let me tell you. That is the HIGHEST base Special Attack stat of all non-legendary Psychic type Pokemon! It transforms at half HP and with it learning moves such as Psychic, Fire Blast, Flamethrower, Focus Blast, Grass Knot, Heat Wave, Endeavour (it DOES transform at half HP after all), Rest and Hidden Power, this Pokemon isn't just good, it's great!

You can have it as either a Special attacker or Physical attacker on your team. It NEEDS to be higher on the list. It hits harder than any non-mega on the list. It's easy to put onto any team and who said the entire move set needs to be moves with secondary effects?
Darmanitan had the guts to be another fire fighting. That's saying something.
Choice scarfed this thing wrecks lives even without the choice scarf

I really like Combusken. May's Combusken learns Mega kick and how did he learn sky uppercut before evolving to Blaziken?
Combusken is awesome and can learn plenty of moves and his speed rate is huge but he isn't the best

37Heat Rotom
It has good defenses and has good special attack as well. Also with levitate it is immune to ground type moves.

38Mega Charizard X
Mega Charizard X should be up with charizard! Just look at him! He's a badass black dragon with blue fire on it's mouth and tail unlike Y as it only has it on it's tail! Come on! He's even a awesome dragon type too! You've all wanted charizard to be one! So there!
Mega Charizard X is a black dragon with BLUE FIRE! How cool is that? It's also dragon type too!
I like he is best fire type

Quite string but its evolution ( charizard) is better.
He's the best

What I don't understand is that people say that charmander is better than Charmeleon, whats he gunna do scratch
Ha ha

Arceus: You wanna fight?
Charmander: You about to get scratched!

Charmander used scratch
Arceus took zero damage! True Story (It was my Charmander! )

His design is awesome and he can be really strong but he isn't close to best
He is the best fire type if you disagree watch out
Fast speed great stats like the simba of the Pokemon world
[Newest]YAY It's another Arcanine!

41Mega Charizard Y
Just like Charizard only better with mega evolution WICKED! OH YEAH
Best fire type Pokemon
What the heck! Why is it #41

I think she is the best pokemon because she is very cute and she is my favourite pokemon
She's so ccuutte I love her oh and I brought her on or him.



It's a CAMEL, that makes it the best...

Plus, it evolves to camerupt a great fire type

A fiery snail that has epic defenses. I raised my Slugma in Pokemon Ruby until it was a Magcargo, and it was a beast. It was totally worth it.
I raised my slugma in soulsilver, it evolved into mag cargo and is totally epic, amazing defense and great moves!


Tepig is a good type when its fully evolved emboar a fire fighting
Hey forgot tepig his fully evolved form emboar can learn scald... A water type and with stone edge and tunder punch you just covered his weakness. Want more teach it recoil damage moves with his abilty reckless he's a hard cookie tepig is AWESOME
He is very cute

It is the best and it also knows a 1 hit ko move so that's why it is the best fire type ever and it can take on any fire type because it is ground too
it is the best don't give it a second thought
Why is Camerupt in 48th place?! Camerupt should be in the top ten or at least 11th place!


Way better attack 40 time 3 that's 120 which is a lot of damage

A very good Pokemon. It is really good.

Seriously this thing is better than Chimchar why is it last?
I got a shiny one!

Why is Groudon at #51? That's just offensive. Groudon is my favourite legendary out of all! Look, his primal evolution looks way better than kyogre's.
Groudon at 52? You offend me. It should be at least in the top 10!

It is called as live coal Pokemon. It's evolution are magmar and magmortar. Each and every time it inhales and exhales, hot embers dribble out of it's mouth and nostrils. It is found in volcanic craters. It's body temperature is over 1100 degrees, so don't underestimate it.
It is the first form of magmortar and it should be in the list for sure because it deserves it.
It is the pre evolution form of magmar. It is good

This is unbelievable. A fire/water type Pokemon this is a lot better than litwick.
This Pokemon is not yet added to Pokemon games but it is in the national pokedex.


It's so cute! Vulpix is extremely adorable and kind of strong. And it's evolution is so pretty, strong, and amazing! Vulpix should be number 2!
Vulpix should be number 1 or 2! It is my favorite Pokemon and Vulpix is so cute!
Vulpix is amazing, & evolves into a nine tales!

Noo way is Pignite second to last. All you have to do is train him to a higher level and give him moves like: tackle, overheat, flamethrower, and fire blast. He levels up really fast if you don't evolve him right away. Also tackle seem like a newbie move, but I left it with pignite and when I fought Falkners level 100 Pidgeot, it finished it off with 85 damage. that's a lot, especially for a move like that. Also, tackle has a lot of pp and even if you don't really want to use it you could give him other good moves in the other move slots and you won't even need to rely on tackle. Pignite was ash's starters so he has to be good. I would place him at about number 6. HE IS AWSOMEEE!... but not the best :( Charizard is the best but he ties with blaziken
You're right! In Pokemon black I have a pignite and its op! He was my starter and his flame charge can eliminate even a water type that's a higher level than him!

Oh gosh litwick. the worst dual type fire/ghost ever. good thing he evolves to Chandelure, which is my third favorite Pokemon
I have tons of this Pokemon, always invite them when it's my B-day
