Best Fire Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated more.

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.

That's what the main storyline says, overrating charizard. Have fun with his 84 attack stat. - Yuanlong

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

That what about the Pokemon that has higher or equal speed and special attack than charizard - Woyaojinkela

My favourite pokemon. Not only that but according to my opinion it is the strongest non legendary pokemon. And best charizard is alain's mega charizard x

2 Blaziken Blaziken Blaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

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

This is the best pokemon fire type

Charizard is gay

3 Infernape Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Asks strongest fire Pokemon

I picked it for pearl but smashed my way through the elite 4 but then lost the pearl game NO

The best Pokemon ever

Infernape is me favorite pokemon plus he is very strong. It's also a Fighting+Fire type, to OP

4 Typhlosion Typhlosion Typhlosion, known in Japan as Bakphoon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

Woo this is awesome

This beast is underrated! It's the best fire starter (trust me, my firend"s Typhlosion killed my Feraligatr! Vote for this monster.

Boo charizard is overrated so at least this pokemon should be third

5 Arcanine Arcanine Arcanine is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Generation 1, it is a fire type Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Growlithe. Legends tell of its fighting alongside a general and conquering a whole country. Arcanine is also known for its high speed, capable of running over 6,200 more.

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. ...more

I personally will always love Arcanine. The moment I got my hands on a Growlithe and wiped the floor with that little pup- I knew, this was a Pokemon that will stay with me throughout the generations... and then I found out my demon of a dog could evolve. With it's amazing speed and killer attack stat, Arcanine can tear apart a team if played right. Now if you are gonna put him against a water type that is faster, sure he'll take a few hits-- but then WHAM Wild charge, and with Life Orb? Oh, ya done son. with a 30% boost to an already monster attack stat, you might wanna kiss that shrimpy little water boy goodbye. Also-- Arcanine can beat those three above him. Fire types are pretty weak to ground, and Arcanine, like any good dog, can learn Dig. (But be wary of them knowing Earthquake so I'd get the Air Balloon or use your other Pokemon in your team to scout it out a bit. If they don't, have at it- if they do- don't take that double damage by being underground in an earthquake) Oh but ...more

He is awesome!

Fire breathing pup, enough said

6 Ho-oh Ho-oh Ho-Oh, known in Japan as Houou, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Very bad it should be on first

He is good

How is Ho-Oh so low? Charizard may be overall better since he is easier to obtain and still has decent stats, but Charizard is a pebble compared to the mountain Ho-Oh. Pretty much indomitable, this beast revived the Legendary Beasts- Entei, Suicune, and Raikou- after the Brass Tower burned down. Easily the most powerful.

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

7 Houndoom Houndoom

This pokemon should not be this low and if the right moves it can be super strong

Houdoom is just AMAZING. It is a dual type with fire dark and can learn snarl and foul play. It has an awesome mega evolution and a great design. Helldog, sign me up!

I have a full art Houndoom EX and I spent an hour trying to figure out how much it's worth, but it is in mint condition and to be honest, totally awesome. I would never trade that card away. It is by far my favorite card!

This one can mega evolve and that can eat fire. so that's why I like it so much

8 Volcarona Volcarona

Volcarona, if used well is almost unbeatable. Just use quiver dance and he is unstoppable

Who wants overrated lizards when you got this?

Volcarona,if used correctly can be OP.which is what I did,so my beautiful fire moth is the most powerful bug asset of my team

Seems good

9 Magmortar Magmortar

Magmortar is weird

It's a bad ass monkey with fire cannons. I bet it would beat dragonite.

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.

V 43 Comments
10 Flareon Flareon

He is one of my favorite pokemon.

He looks so cool

Flareo is the best

I love Flareon

V 44 Comments

The Contenders

11 Entei Entei Entei, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Enter would murder almost any poke mon at lb 70-80's


Could kill any fire type at lv 70s

Entei is the best.

12 Chandelure Chandelure

This Israel the best ghost type ever specially in PTDX

Chandelure rules. I remember trying to beat the elite four in black with my OP samurott, and this beast got in my way, energy balling and shadow balling me. He is a beast special attacker. I also remember being in that grave tower to meet skyla or something like that, and finding stupid candle dudes named litwick. As soon as I found out that they were in common, I headed straight for (even though I'm not a fire type fan). seriously, this dude should at least make the top ten he is OP, with it's really nice 520 base stat total, and 130 special attack. How is this 15?!

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 is a very strong pokemon

13 Moltres Moltres Moltres, known in Japan as Fire, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

No, zapdos easily beats moltres, being beat by articuno.

Moltres is THE BEST

Moltres is da god of all things fire and can KO zapdos

What the heck this s the god of fire

14 Ninetales Ninetales Ninetales, known in Japan as Kyukon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

My man copied from Naruto

Ninetales is my favorite pokemon - Bookin

Nine tails is awesome she/he deserves first place!

Ninetails is the most beutiful thing to ever be seen by humanity

V 107 Comments
15 Rapidash Rapidash

I have a shiny level 100 one

This pokemon is lit

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.

V 16 Comments
16 Reshiram Reshiram Reshiram, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Woo! White boy for li- wait a minute

I love her she's most beautiful fire type Pokemon and she's female like palkia

And the cutest! I wanna cuddle him! - Ikura

Best fire type in my opinion.There was no way I was choosing charizard.

V 87 Comments
17 Victini Victini Victini, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

So flipping cool

Better the Charizard only different is the mega!

Best pokemon and my favorite. Also, strongest and really powerful.

This guy should be #1

V 30 Comments
19 Talonflame Talonflame


I think talonflame should me in the top ten, he is such a good fire type and an amazing flying type too!

He should be in top 3

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

V 16 Comments
20 Torkoal Torkoal

Ii like the defense power and its attack mainly when it battles registeel

Signature pokemon of Flannery... Can Use OverHeat 2 times

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.

V 7 Comments
21 Growlithe Growlithe

Why is there should not be any unevolved pokemon in the top 50 - germshep24

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

22 Fennekin Fennekin Fennekin, known in Japan as Fokko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Great for a psychic/Fire type, it can be weak at times so I understand why it's so low on this list.

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

Fennekin for life. Like this if you agree with me.

23 Heatran Heatran

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.

Heatran should be N.1 it can climb on anything and destroy anything

Heatran is underrated - legendary

I don't think heatran should be last. I think it should be number 5.

24 Emboar Emboar Emboar, known in Japan as Enbuoh, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Though he is Fire/Fighting due to his hatred, his design is awesome and heat crash is satisfying to see in white/black

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

My favorite of the Unova starters, as well as out of the Fire starters.

He actually hit's the hardest of the fire pokemon starters. he has rock moves for flying electric moves can learn grass knot and electric moves, can raise his speed and gains attack power on moves with recoil like wild charge and flare blitz lol he's a beast but he can be countered. I'm pretty sure if he had a mega he'd be OP, charizard is only better for plot reasons lol

25 Magmar Magmar

My Magmar beat Necrozma Dusk Mane - Decidueye2314

In the first appearance of Magmar in the anime, it comes out of the lava, LAVA!

This thing is ok and I like it and I beat an arcanine with this dude

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

26 Braixen Braixen

Braixen is still the best

Charizard mvp props to char char

27 Vulpix Vulpix Vulpix, known in Japan as Rokon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

Yay finally some people agree with me exactly what I expected to be my favourite pokemon arguably the cutest pokemon out there that can actually cause some damage and also has a cute evolution too it kind of helps that fire is my favourite pokemon type of all time alola vulpix is my second favourite even though ice is my least favourite type

One of the few cute pokemon that can cause some amount of destruction fave pokemon of all time

Vulpix should be number 1 or 2! It is my favorite Pokemon and Vulpix is so cute!

Awesome poison-fire type!

30 Combusken Combusken

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

31 Magcargo Magcargo

He is sick

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!

#50 how internet how! it should in the top 10!

32 Delphox Delphox Delphox, known in Japan as Mahoxy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

i love it

Delphox is the best

I don't have any stats to tell, but Delphox was the first starter I had. And it's a pretty good pokemon too! A wizard fox carrying a fire stick? Rad!

I hate delphox so much he's worst fire Pokemon ever. Primal Groudon is best

V 73 Comments
33 Magby Magby


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.

Lamest go caterpie caterpie use string shot and tackle yay caterpie won against magby

34 Monferno Monferno

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 is a non stopmonkey

Monferno can dig andcan learn mega punch.

35 Litten Litten Litten, known in Japan as Nyabby, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Aww Litleo is adorable!

41 Volcanion Volcanion Volcanion, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Great typing combo!

Volcanion is fire water so the Pokemon that would have a advantage wouldn't.

It's a fire water type what do you suspect, all it has to do I learn an OP water typemove and ba all of the top 10's are done for.

I would think that I deserve a good placing

42 Groudon Groudon Groudon, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

NOT FIRE - LuciaTheLugia

Why does a started place way higher than a legendary pokemon

Dis guy can step on does others. Primal form, water dosn't affect because of his Very Harsh Sunlight. He can destroy the world if he really wanted to! Like I said, Groudon would step on the others

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.

V 13 Comments
43 Mega Blaziken

I had this Pokemon and he came with me all through the game.. well until my ds broke but that's besides the point. He is an awesome pokemon. He fought through everything that was thrown at him!

KFC kook chickens

It's just so cool!

44 Chimchar Chimchar Chimchar, known in Japan as Hikozaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Chimchar. So cute but then again so weak. Well guess you can't have it all! Final Evolution looks cool though. (Infernape for life! )

I think chimchar could kick every body ass with his flamethrower

He's amazing and cute and his last evolvement is the best

Thunder punch wrecks the water types

V 3 Comments
45 Torchic Torchic Torchic, known in Japan as Achamo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He is cute but I wish he had arms and also when he evolves he looks like an upside down dildo

Chicken Run 2.0. That's all.

But it does evolve into Blazekin at the final stage which is an epic fighting type and so strong with really cool fire type moves

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!

46 Larvesta

Why is No one commenting? He's quite good and half the time he kicks butt.

Its cool, enough said

I like largest as he evolves into volcaroa

47 Charmander Charmander Charmander, known in Japan as Hitokage, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

50 Pignite Pignite

How is tepig better than pignite. Pignite's fire fighting whereas tepig's just fire

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!

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

What litwick is high then pignite are you kidding me
