Top Ten Non Legendary 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.

Not only is Charizard extremely powerful, but he's one of the most well known Pokemon to have ever existed, and true fans have this badass implanted in our hearts.

This is a joke, one of the worst fully evolved fire Pokemon. It loses half of the health into stealth rock, all stat boosting moves boost its attack but it is a special attacker, its good coverage moves are also physical based. Its stat is 534, not too bad but not great. Blaze and solar power are only ok abilities. Best flying type attack is just air slash, best fire type attacks are fire blast and flamethrower, which almost every fire types learn that. Lacking enough bulk to make good use of roost. Typhlosion is better for its typing and capable of using eruption.

Charizard is not only your best Fire Pokemon, but he is also one of the most-loved Pokemon of all time. Indeed, some of you even apologized for being boring when voting for it. There's nothing boring about Charizard - this fearsome dragon was considered cool enough to be the cover star of Pokemon Red, the first Pokemon game, and his popularity hasn't waned over the years. It can use Fire, Flying and many Dragon-type moves and its breath is hot enough to melt boulders. Charizard is hot!

People tells that it is overrated because of anime. Teach him Earthquake, Thunder punch with maximum attack give it 10 proteins, blast burn and focus blast. Seriously it can take on anyone. Maximize his speed also. Blaziken and infernape both can learn stone edge give charizard a focus band and on next turn attack on them. See its special attack it can even finish lugia also with blast burn and fire gem to doubles the damage.The king charizard is only the best.

2 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.

This beast is AWESOME. I got one from my friend (as a growlithe) and it beat a lot of pokes. It can learn a lot of good moves such as thunder fang (to KO flying types plus super effective water types) and dragon pulse (kills those dragons). Plus it is SUPER fast. If you train it well it can survive rock/ground type moves and take out rock and ground types which most fire types normally can't. This pokemon also looks like a boss. This is why I think this pokemon should be number one, NOT number two.

Boo Arcanine should be number one not a charcoal lizard Arcanine has always been my favorite he awesome looking and he's better than nine tails (don't get me wrong I still love nine tails). He's got the best moves and he's ranked number twelve best Pokemon of all time and ranked number 4 best fire type. This was said by the creator of Pokemon! He's adorable who doesn't want one! He will always be my favorite Pokemon

Charizard is not a charcoal lizard fool. It is a fire dragon and you should know that his anger is always helpful in his attacks

This is making me mad arc anime has the highest stats of all the fire types by far because it was originally suppose to be a legendary. It's stats are even higher than the starters and can beat a legendary any day. This is insane that arc quinine isn't at the top with like 93 percent of the vote

Its literally called the legendary pokemon

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

How the hell did Emboar even make it on this list? Blaziken could kick his ass because he's strong and fast. Emboar might pack a punch but the guy could move fast unless he dropped like fifty pounds and stopped eating like a pig. (Yes, pun intended. ) Emboar and Blaziken are both starters, both fire and fighting types, and both super powerful. But Blaziken is FAST! And he can use flying type moves!
Emboar is UGLY AS HELL!
Blaziken is best. No doubt. Question? Re-read my above rant.

Little known fact: Blaziken actually has four types. Fire with flamethrower and blaze kick, fighting with Sky Uppercut, jump kick, etc., and FLYING with BRAVE BIRD. Strongest flying move in the game this side of signature moves of legends.

What's the fourth type you ask? Awesome...

Who the heck wouldn't love this guy? Blaze kick and Sky uppercut will always be my favorite moves because of him.

Why charizard is 1st place always?
(Unless worst Pokèmon list.)

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

Though Infernape's major weakness include flying and ground, water and physic, it's speed and move set are incredibly versatile. Shadow Claw can easily take down phsycics, Solar beam and Close combo make water and ground types seem flimsy, leaving only one weakness, flying, whic it can take down with a fire blast as long as it is fast enough... Which it is.

Why is it not number one? My infernape took down the sinnoh elite four and cynthia with a little help from garchomp, but infernape is BOSS!

Overheat, Close Combat, Mach Punch, Stone Edge. This is what Infernape needs to wreak havoc. Definitely the best fire starter.

His flame thrower remind me Kamehameha

5 Typhlosion Typhlosion

He has a very wide range of movies and is the only fire starter to have its own move that no other Pokemon can have and is in my opinion the strongest fire type movie and is so much stronger in attack and defense combination than any other Pokemon on this list.

My Typhlosion has earthquake, flamethrower, eruption and thunder punch. Earthquake for rock, electric, ground, and other fire types, flamethrower for grass ice and other types, thunder punch for water and flying types, and eruption to destroy other types.

Typhlosion, and its previous forms, are similar to those of Charizard and, despite Charizard being my favourite Pokemon, Typhlosion was my starter in Crystal and I love him. :')
He can also learn Thunderpunch, which takes care of an water or flying type Pokemon, and Rollout or Earthquake make him, in my opinion, just as good and strong as Blaziken. :D

"If there is any starter you should pick in Gold or Silver it should be CYDAQUIL! It really comes in handy when you are looking for gym strengths. Yes I do know that when it comes to beating red it is quite difficult, but Victreebel is an easily obtained pokemon at the beginning of the game, it is a grass/ poison."

6 Magmortar Magmortar

Magmortar demolished every Pokemon I have ever seen! As my personal favorite Pokemon, it has a wide selection of moves that destroys many different Pokemon. Ash should get one! My Magmortar makes any trainer wet their pants!

The thing is a boss with him learning thunderbolt it can kick the crap out of gyrados!

Magmortar is by far on my top at least 20 list, not only because he's awesome, his stats are incredible.

His face is gay

7 Houndoom Houndoom

Let me get this out of the way.I think this just be where charizard is and hoomdoom is where charizard is.Now with that said let's talk about houndoom.Houndoom is a pretty cool Pokemon.I like the design of it more then every other fire type, it's got a cool typing and the highest stat it has is 110.Which is pretty good.But when it mega evolves it turns into a fast, Sp.Attacker which can be great.Also has a pretty good move pull and quite a bit of good moves when bred like destiny bond, sucker punch, punishment, and thunder fang.It's a well designed, well set up, well based off of Pokemon.Oh I forgot to mention what it's based of...It's based of cerberus from the greek mythology.Or in short, a hellhound.That's pretty cool.So over all I think it's the best out there.Thanks Game Freak for this wonderful Pokemon.

Houndoom is EXTREMLY underrated. Just give him flamethrower, dark pulse, sunny day/nasty plot and solar beam and you have a BEAST. Nasty plot is only if you have a Pokemon with drought that can bring sunlight.

This Pokemon also looks awesome. He is the "dark Pokemon" and even that, it is also fire type! How awesome is that?

SCREW CHARIZARD, IT SUCKS! Throw it a rock and it will run away! EVERYONE! GO HOUNDOOM! - Croquedead

I have a level 100 houndoom that I bred from ninetales and houndoom.. Best Pokemon ever!

good dog

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

Now don't get me wrong, I love all the fire types on this list but Ninetales especially. With is amazing ability drought he can take down any water type Pokemon with solar beam without needing to recharge. Thanks to its very high special attack it makes it able to use almost all the fire moves at a high rate of attack which is super effective against grass, ice, bug, and steel. Because of its outstanding defences it allows nine tales to set up properly and confuse them with confuse ray. And you have to admit, Ninetales and vulpix are really really cute - TigerTyler1231

Ninetales was an awesome Pokemon ever since I played leaf green it is really helpful

Been my fave Pokemon for years.

Best looking Pokémon:/

9 Chandelure Chandelure

This Pokemon is good but emboar is great. How is houndoom top 10? He sucks he is the most useless piece of garbage I've ever used this Pokemon once never again. Now chandelure has a good attack like blue fire.

Just...Shadow Tag, okay? This insanely OP ability got GOTHITELLE (a vastly inferior pokemon) BANNED just because it was so good with Shadow Tag. Chandelure is the ultimate revenge killer. Just slap on a Choice Scarf and you're set.

Chandelure. It has Outstading special attack top 10 in the entire Pokemon series. It's a fantastic choice for any team. Great stab moves with overheat, fire blast, flamethrower, inferno, shadow ball, hex, will-o-wisp. Learns great counter moves against water types like sunny day, solar beam, energy ball, calm mind, psychic. It can take most Pokemon out in 1 hit! It's a very cool Pokemon! Flash fire, infiltrator, flame body.. Amazon abilities! It has a fighting and normal immunities and fire if you have flash fire! By far my favorite Pokemon ever. Never lost a battle

Chandelure does have the highest special attack of a non-legendary fire type. PLUS really good defences and decent speed, this guy wrecks all

10 Talonflame Talonflame

I also voted for charizard but talonflame is awesome! Cooler looking than charizard, can have fire moves and different moves, and ( of course ) can burn things that hit it. So happy for it :) ;) :D

Talonflame is just awesome it now came and it is showing what it can really do. Also the gale wings ability comes in really handy in battle. what is not to like about talonflame.

This thing has epic speed with a couple of flame charges its equal to jolteon
126 speed epic

Amazing speed and damage great for the pokemon lauge

The Contenders

11 Volcarona Volcarona

Remember what this one particular dude said in Bugsys Gym? "All bug Pokemon evolve early! ". Well somewhere a larvesta is sad because it evolves late! So finally a larvesta evolves into a VOLCARONA AND WILL DESTROY YOU! Also, they are pretty decent in competitive battling.

Its stat is way better than charizard's. Its move set is also better than charizard's ( quiver dance, fiery dance). People like charizard better only because it's design is cooler. But I think we are talking about strength of a Pokemon not appearance.

Why wouldn't Volcarona be up here? It takes away Bug's weakness to Fire (obviously), it can get rid of those pesky Psychics that seem to demolish most things in their path, and can take out those Grass/Poison that would be normally affected by Bug.

First off. If volcarona and charizard switched (volcarona number 1 charizard number 11) I would agree with this list. Ima tell u guys a story. There was a bug catcher who said all bug Pokémon evolve early. A larvesta heard and got sad. The bug catch got the larvesta thinking it evolved early. He then realized it didn’t he forgot to release it and his exp share was on. The bug catcher kept taunting larvesta. Then that larvesta evolved and destroyed the bug catchers team. Volcarona excels in OU and quiver dance and fiery dance equals sweep.

12 Rotom Rotom

I thought rotom was a electric type

It's awesome. It can be fire, ice, water, flying, grass, and electric!

Seriously rotom no matter what type it is it rules

But its heat form is fire-type.

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

A physical fire type done right. Emboar has the bulk to back up flare blitz and the hp to use it multiple times

I got a tepig from wonder trade and I was about to trade it but I lost connection to wifi so I just started training and now I have an emboar that beat the elite four and champion without and full restores or revives 2 times in a row

Emboar is the best because he/she is a starter Pokemon, easy to train but still get so OP. Mines is only level 37 but still knows, fire pledge, heat crash, the ultimate fire move blast burn, and flame charge and looks awesome!

Emboar is so underrated, it is so powerful, definitely better than chandelure or ninetales

V 25 Comments
14 Pyroar Pyroar

Pyroar is so strong and cool it learns great moves it even can defeat all the Pokemon above its number "MY VOTE FOES FOR PYROAR! "

He is the best fire type ever

I think this is like SO op

I think poyar is a cool pokemon!

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

Delphox sadly doesn't get a lot of love. Sure, you may not like the design, but it knows pretty decent moves. In my opinion, it looks majestic and wizardly like, which is awesome. The sad part is, no Delphox can survive an earthquake or a very powerful super effective move like earthquake.

Delphox doesn't get enough love. The thing that cut it for me is the variety of amazing status moves, because I've always been a huge fan of status moves. - datrandomguy

Delphox at Number 18? BLASPHEMY! All hail the magic fox!

Playing Pokemon Y was a breeze with Delphox on my team my team could defeat almost any trainer or gym leader on my game. Love it 10/10 strong vixen (aka a female fox) looking sorceress

16 Darmanitan Darmanitan

Darmanitan is the best because it is the only pokemon that can learn both fire punch and fire fang it learns flare blitz at level 36 it has got super fighting movws

I do not want Darmanitan in top 18! At least it should be in top 5.

My darmanitan is unbeatable

Darmanitan is just a beast. If you get a hidden ability it is easily the most op Pokemon of all time. Zen mode is by far the coolest Pokemon ever [ except wailord ].

V 3 Comments
17 Flareon Flareon

I totally agree Flareon is perfect in my personal opinion I think Flareon should at least be in the top five!

Flare on is cute, and I think he can be pretty op if you get him high level

Flareon! Charizard is probably the best choice but, anything that evolves from Eevee is boss!

Flareon is UNUSABLE.

18 Rapidash Rapidash

I love rapidash, it has great fire type attacks and it has good speed as well! It's Defense isn't too amazing but it has other great features. If it has Flash fire, well it can't get much better! It hits first 80% of the time so if fast, powerful Pokemon are for you choose Rapidash! - Swaggy11

Amazing speed! Almost as fast as arcanine! But this is also a sick pokemon that you don't wanna' mess with!

Mega Horn, Flare Blitz, Drill Run, Morning Sun

Who else nicknamed there Rapidash "Denver"?

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

I don't know how and I don't Know why but Charmander is a great Pokemon.

Charmander is boss when he evolves he will beast you

Ha ha ha stongest ha ha ha

20 Torkoal Torkoal

He is a fire turtle and just looks awesome

Torkoal is easily the most underrated pokemon of all time, its defense picks up for its lack of speed and its complimented by a average sp. Attack. The fact torkoal wasnt on this list really surprized me!

It's a flipping fire turtle

Immune to all stat lowering moves used by rival! Just Epic.
(can be caught early in the game).

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

He's so cute! He evolves into fire and psychic

Fennel is so cute

Such an adorable little fire fox

Fennekin is best!

22 Chimchar Chimchar Chimchar is a monkey-like Pokémon from the Sinnoh region. It's a Fire-type starter resembling a chimpanzee. It evolves into Monferno, who evolves into Infernape.

Cutest. Pokemon. Ever. It is also very versatile, and evolves into infernape. Chimchar for the win!

Love this little ape. He is the GREATEST Pokémon
Ever. Never underestimate this little flamethrower.

23 Mega Charizard

I know he is more powerful than charmeleon and charizard as everybody knows but when he was charmander he was to cute

But one thing is funny how come charizard is first and mega charizard 16th!

But anyway mega charizard x is the best!

Wait how is charizard higher than its megas?

I have never seen one in the episodes, but I think it is the strongest.

Amazing Pokemon, Even though It has to types, X and Y I prefer X.

24 Pignite Pignite

He may be a more or less ubknown fire starter, but he can dish out the heat, my level 27 pignite beat a level 30 lucario, plus he can learn poison and rock type moves

25 Magmar Magmar

He is a fat ball of fire he's a beast

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

Entei is cool looking as well as really powerful. It's a legendary isn't it?

Entei is the best Pokemon for me and it's a legendary Pokemon.

27 Magikarp Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves more.

High Defense+ High Health Pool makes it so that it is an UNSTOPPABLE fire-type pokemon! A NECESSITY for a good team!

Once it learn fire splash, you're done.

Not a fire Pokemon!

Honestly the best fire type you can have on your team. it has great attack, and while it's defense is a bit low it's speed makes up for it all. plus when it evolves it's defense is a lot better. Defiantly the best fire type on this list.

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

Moltres is a legendary. Read the topic of the poll...

He is a really cool legendary fire type bird. You just can't beat that!

It's a legendary and it's a titan bird

I love moltres.
Mine has:
Sunny Day

29 Mega Blaziken

It's better than normal blaziken

I think it is stronger than mega charizaud


Best Pokémon ever!

30 Simisear

Whoever put this there is blind and death. Simisear is ugly and fat - Knickknacktoygirl

Pretty good, but I have a card. - funnyuser

Basically a legendary. should be top 5. You can beat any elite 4 or gym of champion with this beast.

Probally the best pan monkey dude with his good stats and moveset

31 Victini Victini

V create is wicked and mine knows
V create
Fusion bolt
Fusion flare
And flare blitz
I got for a mystery gift for a shiny Latias and do not regret. Victini is wicked.

It isn't legendary it's mythical

Victini is such a awesome Pokemon and to prove that he has got a film including reshiram and zekeom whatch it and you will know the ultimate power of Victini

V 1 Comment
32 Charmeleon Charmeleon

He evolves into charazard who is a complete prodigy, number 1 on this list actually so he should at least be in the top 20

Charwelton should be before 20 because charmander itself is before 20

33 Braixen Braixen

36 Quilava Quilava Quilava, known in Japan as Magmarashi, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Brothers favorite gold and silver starters

37 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

Firstly dragonite should be the same level as charizard and secondly dragonite is being said to be now the strongest pokemon in pokemon go and there must be a reason so I vote for a dragonite

Dragonite is a dragon type.

He is second strongest

38 Incineroar Incineroar

Incineroar rules

I don't really like incineroar because of his/her look, but I love Litten and TorraCat!

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

Quite useful in the first few gym in Crystal/Gold/silver until you face Whitney's Miltank - thabiso12345676

40 Houndour Houndour

Awesome design and very underrated. Houndoom is awesome, but Houndour is cute as well as badass looking, great for any type of trainer. Plus, my Lv 20 Houndour was able to take out Sabrina entirely by itself in Heartgold, type strength, yeah, but it still wrecked, especially due to it's low level

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

It is not a psuedo legendary, it is in fact a Mythical Pokemon received from GameFreak giveaways.

Ok So, A Sudo Legendary, Water And Fire, Has Its Own Move Steam Eruption. Must I Go On People, Must I?

42 Camerupt Camerupt

Best fire type Pokemon easy! Has two great types. Has both great attack and special attack with pretty good defense only thing holding him back is speed but it's still the best fire type him and arcanine are the top two easy!

Camerupt is the BEST! Among the REST!

Nobody like a cow with volcanoes on it back

Hey guys I got a free Camerupt from the battle resort after defeating the elite four in Alpha Sapphire. It knew NO ground or fire moves, which sucked so bad, but now I've taught it some great TMs like overheat and earthquake, its actually pretty good. By the way I got a Sharpedo with it too

43 Magcargo Magcargo

Magcargo is amazing. He is almost twice as hot as the surface of the sun. This means water that would normally be super effective against fire would instantly turn to steam. Everyone around this cut, little Pokemon would die.

Might not be that good but its Much better than some pokemon on this list like Chimchar and Charmander

44 Fire Castform

The weather pokemon is awesome!
Here I'm gonna demonstrat what I did with my two castforms in a double battle.

Castform 1 (the castform with higher speed)
Moves: rain dance, sunny day, hail, sandstorm.
Castform 2 (the attacker)
Moves: thunder, solarbeam, blizzard, weather ball

Strategy: castform 1 being faster, changes weather. Then castform 2 uses the move that will benefit from the weather change. So if I want to use thunder then I change weather to rain for 100% accuracy. Solarbeam to sunlight for no charge up, blizzard for hail fo 100% accuracy again, and weather ball for all weather so I have a very diverse set of moves

Types matchup:
-Normal: nothing
-Fire: weather ball in rain or sandstorm
-water: thunder or solarbeam
-electric: nothing
-grass: weather ball in sun or hail and blizzard
- ice: weather ball in sun or sandstorm
-poison: nothing
-ground: solarbeam, blizzard, or weather ball in rain or ...more

Castform is pretty good! It can change form which is awesome.

The weather pokemon, come on!

45 Heatmor Heatmor

I like him. Poor forgotten anteater...

Come on he's got powerful moves good stats and destroys Pokémon for lunch

46 Torchic Torchic

Since when was torchic not on his list he should be because its not only the best Pokemon in history it is so cute!

47 Turtwig Turtwig

He has tackle and razor leaf

Not a fire Pokemon...

48 Arceus Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

Not always fire but has a form of every type you need the respective plates

Best Pokemon ever seen

I can't believe you didn't vote Arceus

49 Tepig Tepig

Tepig is pretty cute, I have to admit, but when it evolves into its final evolution Emboar it is so boss! I have one in Alpha Sapphire (I got it from trading on the GTS) and now its an Emboar, believe or not, and although it hasn't really learnt any fighting type moves yet its still pretty good. Besides, mine learnt Assurance, and it's a good dark type move.
