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

Charizard deserves to be in the top ten

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

I hate to say that Blaziken is the best fire type because I really want to say that it is Infernape, but Blaziken was able to make it into the UBER tier in competitive battles which is literally the highest tier. I'm talking about regular Blaziken, not just Mega Blaziken. I also believe that it does say better than other fire type pokemon because of its mega evolution. You could say that Sharks are is better because it has 2 mega evolutions, but Dragon and flying just don't have enough coverage, while fighting types cover 5 different types alone. Blaziken also gets a good amount of coverage moves like earthquake, high jump kick, solar beam, stone edge, brave bird, night slash, poison jab, shadow claw, etc. Just because you don't like a pokemon as much as another, doesn't mean that pokemon is bad, which I think I just proved. I still prefer Arcanine and Infernape, but Blaziken is just better.

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

Hi come a lizard be stronger than a fiery beast?

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

Infernape probably has the best design for a fire type. It's not a generic fire dragon. It's not a big rat. It is the God of the Sun. Look it up if you don't believe me.

He is the best! He can trash Blaziken and Lucario with just Close Combat

Infernape is the best pokemon of all time. He could beat both Torterra and Empoleon due to Torterra's grass type and Empoleon's steel type. People constantly trash him because he was the second fire/fighting starter.

He is best but not least he become blaze another will become ash he is my favaroute Pokemon

4 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

This pokemon should be number1 it is strong

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?

5 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!

It have exactly the same stats than cherizard but I like typhlosion design more

Op super underrated should be at top of this list

Typhlosion is so cool and I have used it as a physical Pokemon and is is op

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.

Amazing legendary

Its an amazing pokemon in fire

Has one of the coolest shinies ever. Also is just a superior version of charizard

Very bad it should be on first

7 Houndoom Houndoom

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!

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

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 Flareon Flareon

Fiareon"s cute!

He is one of my favorite pokemon.

Flareo is the best

He looks so cool

9 Volcarona Volcarona

Really good setups, typing what else could you possibly want. And not to mention the shiny is badass

All you need is quiver dance, fiery dance, heat wave and bug buzz and you can wipe the floor with anyone!

Quiver dance.

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

10 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.


The Contenders

11 Chandelure Chandelure

This thing is a beast and nobody can convince me otherwise

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.

12 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

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

Could kill any fire type at lv 70s

Entei is the best.

According to research, when Entei roars, a volcano will erupt on the other side of the world. - Bwm6446

Most powerful fire type ever

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

Victini has a special ability to win a game when he say "I win. That is cool right!

It poop but god

Why is this Pokemon here?! I mean Victini is literately so cute! She does NOT I repeat NOT look like she is going to harm you!

Best typing ever!

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.

16 Incineroar Incineroar Incineroar, known in Japan as Gaogaen, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Beast man yet

Take John cena and a cat and fire you get this beast!
This thing can beat charizard! It should be in the top 10 in my opinion!


Easily the best pokemon of all time.

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

HOW IS HE LOWER THAN ENTEI AND MOLTRES? They suck compared to Reshiram. This fire dragon deserves a much higher place, fire negates ice and fairy weakness.

Reshiram us so much better than arcanine so you should transfer it on arcanine place as well as it is an legendary Pokemon

It's a legendary its too good

Reshiram is no gender...
Why are people saying she/he
Zekrom is overrated compared to it.

18 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

19 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.

:( But this sucks...

Absolutely adorable, such a successful evolution line, even the middle stage is well-known and respected. Delphox (final evolution) says boss battle like no other and has a massively interesting type. Fire and Psysic. This was my first Pokémon and I have no regrets.

Fennekin totally cute! Adorable in first form strong and powerful in others. IT ROCKS THIS CITY. AS GREAT AS HELL!

20 Talonflame Talonflame

He always beats my friends laperace


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

I believe Talonflame should be rated higher than 20 cause the heck it battled two legendary bird pokemon in the anime plus it is really badass.

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

Delphox has the best furry design, making her a hug giver.

Awesome Pokemon

She looks like a female sensei. When Braixen evolved I was pumped. Plus she can use psychic power to make a big swirly fire!

I just love Delphox because it's just so strong + I love the design.

22 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.

23 Braixen Braixen

It's stats are actually good and it evolves into a REALLY strong pokemon!

Braixen is still the best

Charizard mvp props to char char

Really good, It's got good stats too! Which is also great when you evolve from such a cute pokemon like Fennkin!

24 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

25 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.

26 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

27 Primal Groudon Primal Groudon

I mean... it's Groudon man

It is the best.It should be in top 10

He is the best here. who ever made it is dum

He's so cool. he should be 2nd place

28 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

29 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!

30 Camerupt Camerupt

I love the idea and the typing. I had a Camerupt card and I rekt everyone with it

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!

It's EPIC it's a pokemon with THREE volcanos on its back

31 Mega Blaziken

My opinion is that mega BLAZIKEN should be at the top for sure because blaziken is the second so mega blaziken should be at the to of the list. Also who ever made this list is trash.

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!

32 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

33 Salazzle Salazzle

Toxic the poison types burn stuff and mid to hard to get

I like tomatoes

It is a very strong fire/poison type and it is Resistant to fire.

Awesome poison-fire type!

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

Litten is the best cat in the whole pokemon series

Litten is queen

I agree that Litten is awesome! and I love its evos too. :3

35 Mega Charizard Y

Far better ability and can learn solar beam to deal with water types, what's not to love

Mega charizard y should be way before the normal charizard, plus he is my favourite Pokemon in the world.

Why are Charizard's Mega Forms ranked like 45 position lower tan Charizard's? Please tell me this is a typo.

Just like Charizard only better with mega evolution WICKED! OH YEAH

36 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.

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

It can literaly hack into ANYTHING.It could win a fight agaist missingNo

Why is he here

How is this this Not on top! Rotom is beast

But I love how in the movie he runs inside washing machines and vacuums lol.

38 Pyroar Pyroar

I love this guy he is one of my favorites

I really don't know how pyroar got down here at 42 but as far as I have seen it is better than even delfox

He is cool didn't u see ash vs Lysander
The way u list sucks
It should be 2

His design is awesome and he can be really strong but he isn't close to best

39 Tepig Tepig Tepig, known in Japan as Pokabu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

Fire pig, Fire pig, does whatever Fire pig does, Uses Ember
and Fire Spin, look out, it's Fire pig

40 Litleo Litleo Litleo, known in Japan as Shishiko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Cute lion cub who is powerful what more do you want?

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.

43 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

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

This pokemon is the best

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

1 Comment
45 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

46 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

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

so cute

I've been looking for you every where. Where have you been

Charmander is the best pokemon

I think charmander's cute!

48 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!

49 Charmeleon Charmeleon

I love Charmeleon. He is the Pokemon that best suites my age. Both me and him are teen-like! - Neonco31

Quite string but its evolution ( charizard) is better.

Charmeleon not Charmander

He's the best

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

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
