Fire-Type Pokémon have been integral to the Pokémon franchise since the inception of the very first games, representing a core elemental type. Among them are iconic species like Charizard, often featured on game box art. Despite their vulnerability to certain types such as Water and Rock, Fire-Type Pokémon have consistently maintained their status as one of the game's most formidable types.

Notably, some Legendary and Mythical Pokémon that stand out for their impressive stature, such as Primal Groudon, Ho-Oh, and Victini, also belong to the Fire-Type category. Given their consistent inclusion as one of the three types in starter Pokémon trios, Fire-Types are destined to endure, remaining a substantial and enduring element within the game's battling landscape.
