Wondering around in Pokemon Scarlet with Skeledirge

The world of Pokemon is confusing, especially for aspiring trainers getting their first Pokemon game. Various types of creatures and critters roaming around the world have different abilities that derive from their elemental natures.

As a budding trainer, I did my best to learn about these 18 types of Pokemons, and now that I have acquired most of the knowledge about the Pokemons, I am here to teach you everything you need to know about these various types of Pokemons.

So, in this installment, I will give you everything you need to know about Fire type weakness, which will help you on your way to being the best Pokemon trainer. So without further ado, let us get right into the topic.

What Is A Fire-Type Pokemon?

Fire Type Pokemon are some of the most fierce Pokemons that are available in the games. They comprise one of the three starter Pokemon, and it is common knowledge that people tend to choose fire types the most as their starting companions.

When it comes to appearance, Fire Type Pokemon are fierce looking and have the ability to intimidate their opponents.

As nothing in the real world resembles a creature that has control of fire, the designers at the Pokemon company have designed fire-type Pokemons, taking inspiration from Japanese mythology.

Best Fire Type Pokemon Weaknesses

A few types of Pokemon can be used to counter Fire Type Pokemon. These Pokemon types have the ability to cause super-effective damage to their fire-type adversaries. These include Water Type, Ground Type, and Rock Type Pokemon.

When talking about Water type, it does not warrant much explanation. As Water extinguishes fire, you can be sure that a water-type Pokemon will be extremely deadly for a fire type.

Furthermore, ground-type and Rock type Pokemon can easily throw their punches and still manage to defeat a fire-type Pokemon.

There is also the issue of fire-type Pokemon resistance. Fire types can only cause half damage to the dragon, water, and rock types. These Pokemons may also be very difficult for a fire type to defeat.

So keep these weaknesses in mind the next time you go against a fire-type Pokemon, and you should rest assured of an easy victory.

Quick look at all the Fire-type Pokémon weaknesses:

  • Water-type
  • Ground-type
  • Rock-type

Fire Type Strengths and Resistances

Even though Fire types are weak towards some of their fellow Pokemons, that does not mean that they are absolute slouches. There is a reason why fire types are some of the most widely chosen Pokemons in the series as starters.

Any and all Pokemon which come from the family of bug type, ice type, grass type, and steel type are easy pickings for a fire-type Pokemon.

Fire Type Pokemon Weaknesses

Their high-temperature fire beams will have the intensity to incinerate these Pokemons and ensure an easy victory.

Fire-type Pokemons are resistant to attacks that may originate from the bug, fairy, ice, steel, and fire types. Apart from that, certain weather conditions, like sunny days, give the fire-type Pokemon an additional boost in their damage.

If you find yourself against Fire Type Pokemon, what are some of the best Pokemon that can pick a fight with it and ensure victory? Ideally, you would want to pick those types of Pokemon from a family of Water, ground, and rock types.

However, here are some of my favorite Pokemon, which I tend to use against fire-type Pokemons. The first Pokemon on my list is Kabutops which can inflict double damage onto any fire-type Pokemon.

This Pokemon is a rock/water hybrid, therefore, can inflict super effective damage onto any fire-type adversaries.

Next up is Relicanth, which is also a water/rock hybrid and is a highly effective Pokemon against fire types.

Quagsire and Swampert are water/ground hybrids that can also cause super effective damage to fire-type Pokemon.
