The Nature of Fire

What is fire?

Fire is the rapid oxidation of a combustible material and/or substance, releasing heat, light, and various reaction products such as carbon dioxide and water. Depending on the substances alight, and any impurities outside, the color of the flame and the fire’s intensity might vary. Fire in its most common form can result in conflagration, which has the potential to cause physical damage through burning. In its more primordial form, fire is also known as lava or magma, which consists of molten rock, crystals and gas bubbles and is found beneath the surface of the Earth.

The element of fire has played a major role in the evolution of mankind more than any other species on planet Earth. Archaeological evidence originating from East Africa proves that the earliest control of fire was made over 1.42 million years ago and humans have since then, adapted themselves around this element in its more gentle form, heat which was necessary for survival. However, fire has also been a foremost catalyst in the evolution of mankind’s diet behavior, as food was no longer consumed raw but was cooked instead.

However, fire is not only linked to human evolution in terms of diet and hehavior; it has been an element that inspired mankind on a plethora of levels.

In terms of philosophy, the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus held that fire is the primordial element out of which everything else arises. Fire is the origin of all matter; through it things come into being and pass away. Fire itself is the symbol of perpetual change because it transforms a substance into another substance without being a substance itself.

In mythology, Agni, Prometheus, Hestia, Hui Liu, Coyote and Olofat are only a few of the personages associated with fire, while many creatures are well-known for their ties with this element, the most famous being the Phoenix and the Dragon.

In alchemy, the chemical element of sulfur was often associated with fire while its alchemical symbol is an upward-pointing triangle.

In symbolical terms, fire is the bringer of destruction, the symbolism of chaos and war but is also often used for strong emotional feelings as well, such as love, hate, passion, compassion, empathy, anger and determination.

In Chinese culture, fire represents the active and masculine Yang while in Christianity it is a symbol of cleansing, purification and light, and is often equated with the Holy Ghost. Another common representation of fire in Christianity is the purgatory, which is the condition or process of purification or temporary punishment in which the souls of those who die in a state of grace are made ready for Heaven, while the sinners are scorched before the descend to Hell, which in turn signifies eternal suffering through fire. During medieval times, witches were burned at the stake to undo their sorcery and black magic, while the Holy Inquisition also utilized fire as a way to cleanse and purify the wicked.

Fire also symbolizes hearth and since early days, an open flame such as a fireplace or bonfire has been a place of gathering and the epicentre for celebrations and rituals, for most if not all, cultures.

To conclude, fire, despite its chaotic behavior, is a tool that can bring inspiration or devastation, depending to how it is used.

Fire in the Games

As we all are aware, Fire exists in the Pokémon games as well, and many trainers have come to relate with this element and the vivacity of the Pokémon that consist it, making it one of the most popular types around. All beginner trainers are given a choice to pick between three different Pokémon, one of them being of the Fire Type; we are all aware that the Fire Starters and their evolutions are some of the most renowned and overused Pokémon in the games. However popular, the number of Fire type Pokémon and attacks is very limited, giving a trainer very few options as for what creature to pick and the attacks that will consist its moveset.

Eventhough Fire type Pokémon seem to have a lot of resistances, they are of little use to them, while their weaknesses, Ground, Rock and Water are very commonly used in movesets. In general, Fire types possess good offensive stats and an above average speed; however their defenses and hit points are not very impressive therefore Fire type Pokémon need to strike fast before they go down. They cannot be affected by the Burn condition, preventing the loss of Attack, which can make them good physical sweepers. Pokémon of this type can take high advantage of the effects of Sunny Day and can usually learn the move Solarbeam which is a good counter against all three of their weaknesses.

Fire Type Pokémon do not fall under a particular Egg Group; the most common being Ground with 2,1 Humanshape and the unorthodox No-Eggs Group with 5, followed by Monster and Dragon with 3 each. Their colors vary from red, orange to brown and yellow, with only two of them listed as black. Fire type Pokémon abilities are very distinct; while the Fire Starters always possess Blaze, most Fire type Pokémon have Flash Fire while others have Flame Body or Magma Armor as their ability, with the exception of legendaries who usually possess Pressure. Additionally, 15 Pokémon belong to a 3-stage evolutionary line, 13 of them to a 2-stage evolutionary line, while 5 Pokémon do not evolve at all.

Fire Pokémon List

There is a total of 33 Pokémon species out of 493 that belong to the Fire Type; 20 of them are pure Fire Types, while 11 have Fire as their primary type. Only 2 Pokémon have Fire as their secondary type.

Fire Type Attacks

Are Super Effective against (x2)
Bug Grass Ice Steel
Are Not Very Effective against (x½)
Dragon Fire Rock Water
Have No Effect against (x0)

Fire Type attacks can become very useful in battles as they can defeat several types, among them, the very defensive Steel type. Most fire attacks are powerful, half of them having power over 100 while 11 out of 16 have power over 80. The usual added effect of Fire Type attacks is the Burn condition, which not only halves the opponent’s Attack stat, but also inflicts damage over time.

Fire type attacks involve the creation and manipulation of fire, heat or even lava, varying from ranged attacks such as bolts of fire like Ember or even more powerful conflagrations like Fire Blast and Blast Burn, to powerful area of effect emanations, such as Lava Plume and Heat Wave. Other attacks, like Fire Fang and Fire Punch, rely on charging a specific body part in flames before striking..

Fire Type Attack List

Out of a total of 467 attacks so far, only 18 of them fall under this category. More precisely, 10 of them are Special moves, 6 are Physical attacks, while only 2 of them are non-damaging moves.

Fire Legends

Legendary Pokémon have always inspired and awed people all around the Pokémon World! Hardly ever witnessed and rare, if not, unique, these creatures brim with huge amounts of power and mystery.

Moltres IconMoltres

The Legendary Bird of Fire and the counterpart of Articuno and Zapdos, has been an inspiration for many generations as Moltres’ flame represents the virtues and competitive spirit of the Indigo League. It is said that by flapping its wings, it releases a storm of embers so bright, which can even illuminate the night sky in a crimson red color, while its appearance usually signifies an early spring even to wintry areas. Reports debate on this elusive Pokémon’s habitat; it has been spotted in the cave complex known as the Victory Road of Kanto or within the caverns of Mt. Silver, while others have seen it in the southern regions, atop Mt. Ember of the Sevii Islands or even residing in the vicinity of the Shamouti Island complex, situated at the heart of the Orange Archipelago. More recent reports, state that a gigantic bird engulfed in flames has been witnessed soaring the skies above the Sinnoh region. Due to these contradictory facts, scientists have come to believe that Moltres will migrate to warmer climates and prefers volcanic areas, as legend claims that it immerses its body in molten lava to heal its wounds. It is said that Moltres’ control over fire is unsurpassable, while its signature move is Sky Attack, a powerful Flying type move.

Entei IconEntei

Along with Raikou and Suicune, Entei is one of the three Pokémon that were resurrected by Ho-oh when the Brass Tower of Ecruteak City was burned down to the ground during a lightning storm. Entei represents the might and passion of magma, while it is rumoured that volcanoes erupt whenever this Pokémon barks. However, other sources claim that an Entei is born whenever a volcano erupts. Whatever the case might be, Entei is said to constantly roam the lands of Kanto and Johto at intense speeds, as it is unable to restrain its formidable power. Some researchers such as Eusine of Ecruteak, also believe that all three Legendary Beasts act as Ho-oh’s eyes and ears throughout the land, a fact yet to be validated. A trainer will first need to spot Entei in the wild, and if he wishes to attempt a catch, he will have to use his Pokédex to track it down its current location, as this Pokémon will not remain stationary and will usually flee combat if the trainer cannot somehow trap and incapacitate it. Entei along with Raikou and Suicune, was voted as one of the 10 most popular Pokémon during Pokémon ‘s 10th year anniversary.

Ho-oh IconHo-oh

The polar opposite of the legendary Lugia, Ho-oh, often referred to as the Guardian of the Skies, is the Pokémon that created Raikou, Entei and Suicune after the Brass Tower burned down during a lightning storm many long years ago. Rumored to either rest in its nest on top of the Tin Tower or continuously roam the skies, Ho-oh is undeniably a very rare sight, said to only reveal itself once in a blue moon and only to a trainer who is pure of heart. As it soars the skies, its beautiful feathers deflect light and alter its coloration, making its body glow with the seven colors of the rainbow, creating a vibrant trail behind it. It is believed that on very rare occasions, one of its feathers might detach and drop to the ground, a frelic that is said to bring happiness and luck to whoever finds it. Ho-oh is the only Pokémon that can use Sacred Fire, a powerful fire attack, while it is rumoured to be the bearer of the very unique item Sacred Ash, which will return Ho-oh or any Pokémon that has fained back to life and at full health.

Ho-oh has the greatest combined stats of all Fire type Pokémon, while it is also the version icon of both Pokémon Gold and HeartGold versions. Ho-oh is also the only legendary Pokémon that has not been featured in a movie, but has made several appearances, one being at the end of the very first Pokémon episode when Gold and Silver versions were not even announced.

Heatran IconHeatran

Residing in places of intense heat, such as volcanoes, Heatran combines the abilities of both Fire and Steel type Pokémon. Its tortoise-like body is constantly exuding extreme heat which even melts spots on its shell; however Heatran is impervious to fire and magma. Recent reports state that Heatran has been spotted within the caverns of Stark Mountain and that it has the ability to walk freely on walls and ceilings, much like an arachnid. Heatran is naturally a fierce guardian and it is considered that without the power of the enigmatic Magma Stone, this Pokémon would go on a fierce rampage, resulting in Stark Mountain’s eruption. It has been said that its fire is the most powerful of all Fire type Pokémon and that it can control magma with exceptional ease, creating a Magma Storm, which traps the opponent while damaging him with intense heat. Researchers have concluded that Magma Storm is Heatran’s signature move and that it is similar to Fire Spin in many aspects, although it is extremely more powerful.

Other Popular and Unique Fire Pokémon

Either because they are unique or few, these Pokémon have been appearing into the games outside wild Pokémon areas and/or marked the game’s history.

Charizard IconCharizard

The classic old dragon, Charizard is by far the most popular fire type starter Pokémon evolution in the games so far. Not only has it been the version icon of both Pokémon Red and FireRed versions, but has also appeared on the box arts of Pokémon Stadium, Pokémon Ranger and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky and has made several appearances in other Nintendo games, such as the Super Smash Bros series. Charizard’s intimidating appearance and demeanor in both animé and game, rightfully earned him the title of most popular Fire Pokémon, as even new Pokémon fans certainly know of him, despite the fierce competition such as Infernape.

Charizard is one of the two non-legendary Pokémon that was voted among the 10 favorite Pokémon of all time to commemorate Pokémon’s 10th year anniversary, the other being Pikachu and was voted as most popular amongst all four Fire starters by Legendary Pokémon’s forum members. It is the only Pokémon whose type combination matches that of two legendaries, Moltres and Ho-oh and who can learn many attacks of various types, making him an ideal physical or special sweeper. It is the only non-Dragon type that can learn Dragon Claw via level up, while his dragon-like appearance earned him a spot in Lance’s Dragon-themed team.

Famous Trainers

Blaine

Blaine Sprite

Despite his age, Blaine has been the gym leader of his home island, Cinnabar for quite a while; however few know that at a younger age Blaine go lost on a freezing mountain range until the legendary Moltres appeared and guided him to safety, a fact that inspired him to become a Fire type Pokémon trainer.

Having a thing for riddles, Blaine, “The Hotheaded Quiz Master.” is not easily accessible for a challenge as he not only expects trainers to find the key to his gym within the island’s abandoned mansion, but has also set up machines within his gym that keep all doors leading to him, tightly locked. The challenger will need to answer correctly to the questions the machines generate in order to unlock the massive doors; if he fails, a trainer standing nearby will attack and if defeated, will unlock the doors himself.

Years later, when the volcano on Cinnabar Island erupted, Blaine set off to the Seafoam Islands in order to relocate his gym. Surrounded by many of his trustworthy trainers, he expects the challenger to reach the platform in the middle of the room where he stands before he accepts any match.

Having trained many Fire type Pokémon over the years, Blaine unleashes a fiery barrage of attacks with the help of his Rapidash, Magmar, Arcanine or Magcargo and only when defeated will he part with the Volcano Badge and a technical machine containing either the all powerful Fire Blast or Overheat.

Flannery

Flannery Sprite

Admired for her beauty and strength, the redhead Flannery is the granddaughter of an older member of Hoenn’s Elite Four and has only recently claimed the title of Gym Leader of Lavaridge Town. It is obvious that the old man sees a lot into Flannery as it is also clear that it was he who taught her the ropes and transmitted to her his passion for Pokémon. She is “One with a fiery passion that burns!” and her passion of battling is hotter than that of a volcano and is not one to give up easily as she attempts to put on an intimidating demeanor when a new trainer challenges her.

The Lavaridge Gym except for being remote and secluded, is a complex filled with smoke, fog and pits where gym trainers hide and bide their time until someone happens to walk in on them. The challenger will need to navigate through the gym and defeat cooltrainers, battle girls and even fire breathers before they reach Flannery and obtain yet another badge to prove their worth and gain access to the Hoenn League.

Flannery will utilise several Fire type Pokémon native to the Hoenn region, such as Slugma, Numel, Camerupt and her very defensive Torkoal. The challenger must not only keep a Burn Heal handy, but also beware as Flannery will not hesitate to use her most powerful attacks such as Overheat, which despite the fact that it will lower the user’s offensive stats, it will totally torch any Pokémon that cannot resist its fiery effects.

When defeated, Flannery reveals that she had been putting up an act to try and look more intimidating and thanks the victorious challenger for making her realize her mistake, awarding him not only with the Heat Badge but with a technical machine containing the powerful attack Overheat as well.

Flint

Flint Sprite

Flint is the third member of the Sinnoh Elite Four the player encounters earlier on during the game, visiting Sunnyshore City and his good friend, and gym leader, Volkner, urging the player to bring back the excitement of battling to him. Flint belongs to a family of strong trainers, as his younger brother Buck is one to join the player character at Sinnoh’s Battle Tower, while his grandfather runs the Battleground in the Survival Area near Stark Mountain.

Eventhough Flint has raised many Pokémon, he has recently decided on using Fire types exclusively. Anyone wishing to proceed and challenge Lucian, will need to defeat his Houndoom, Flareon, Rapidash, Infernape and finally his most powerful Pokémon, Magmortar. His Pokémon however are very well trained and possess attacks to counter their weak spots. However grateful he might be about solving the problems back in Sunnyshore City, Flint will not hesitate at anything during the match and whoever succeeds in beating him, will get one step closer to challenging the Champion, Cynthia.

Flint and Volkner will later on challenge the player and his rival in a double battle upon their arrival to the new Battle Frontier.

Related Items

Items related to Fire Type Pokémon come into many shapes and types and all of them have an interesting background story behind. Note that some quotes have been added by me, simply for extra amounts of flavour!

Charcoal SpriteCharcoal
Along the years, researchers have observed that a Pokémon holding a small piece of charcoal will be able to use it as a catalyst to increase the potential of Fire Type attacks to even greater heights. However small the difference might be, even a marginal increase to a Pokémon’s capabilities might grant his trainer victory.
Flame Plate SpriteFlame Plate
Brimming with fiery energy, this ancient-looking plate is rumoured to belong to the legendary Pokémon Arceus. Its power not only changes Arceus type into a Fire type, but also increases the damaging potential of Fire Type moves a lot more than the commonly used, charcoal.
Fire Stone SpriteFire Stone
The bright radiation of a Fire Stone is the key to evolution for a small number of Pokémon. Trainers who wish to obtain an Arcanine, Ninetales or Flareon, will first need to obtain one of these rare stones, as only under its effects will Growlithe, Vulpix and Eevee further evolve.
Magmarizer SpriteMagmarizer
Recent researches have proven that the Pokémon known as Magmar had the potential to evolve. After years of experimentation, scientists were able to perfect the item commonly now know as the Magmarizer, a device that when activated would release the latent energy within a Magmar’s body to transform it into the more powerful Magmortar.
Soot Sack SpriteSoot Sack
As soot is itself a by-product of volcanic activity, this soot sack makes sure that its user will safely store every inch of soot he can find, while keeping himself clean from impurities. One would wonder why anyone would wish to get himself into such a filthy occupation; however rumors speak of a talented artisan residing within the Hoenn region who can construct exceptional flutes with unique abilities.
Flame Orb SpriteFlame Orb
This small fist-sized orb contains a highly concentrated amount of heat, which can easily set to flame everything it touches; everything but a Fire type Pokémon. Trainers have recently concluded that if their Pokémon is able to trick the opponent into holding this orb, the effects would be dire, as the foe would suffer from the painful Burn condition, halving their offense while damaging them over time.
Heat Rock SpriteHeat Rock
Great amounts of heat are constantly exuded off this piece of rock. Scientists have long debated as to what its effects on Pokémon might be and the most recent records prove that the effects of the move known as Sunny Day will linger way longer than usual.
Magma Stone SpriteMagma Stone
The effects of the enigmatic Magma Stone remain a mystery up until now. It appears that its existence is deeply important to the legendary Pokémon Heatran and that without it, this creature would cause Stark Mountain to erupt.
Flame Mail SpriteFlame Mail
As Fire type Pokémon have grown more and more popular nowadays, the Veilstone Department Store has decided to put these bright mails featuring blazing red flames on sale. One would swear they actually seem to be on fire!
Burn Heal SpriteBurn Heal
The Burn Heal is hands down a trainer’s best chance to remove a nasty burn before it is too late and has always proved useful when challenging gym leaders who use Fire type Pokémon or tricky moves such as Will-O-Wisp.
Sacred Ash SpriteSacred Ash
This rare amount of ash glitters with the seven colors of the rainbow and radiates awe and mysticism beyond imagining. Said to only be in the possession of the legendary Ho-oh, these ashes will bring back to consciousness and at full health any Pokémon that may have fainted.
Rainbow Wing SpriteRainbow Wing
This relic is said to bring good luck and happiness to whoever finds it. Legends say that the Rainbow Wing can lead its bearer to the place where the legendary Pokémon Ho-oh currently resides.
Clear Bell SpriteClear Bell
This bell emits a magical sound when struck. With the use of this ancient artifact the Kimono Girls of Ecruteak City, are said to be able to summon the legendary Ho-oh on top of the Tin Tower.
