Characteristics

Defense

Very few Fire-type Pokémon have a secondary type that negates their weakness to Water-type attacks. On the other hand, most Fire types can learn Solar Beam to counter all three of the type's weaknesses.

The Fire type grants immunity to burns and the sea of fire caused by Grass Pledge and Fire Pledge. It enables the use of Burn Up, though Burn Up removes the user's Fire type.

Offense

During harsh sunlight or extremely harsh sunlight, the power of Fire-type attacks is increased by 50%. The power of Fire-type attacks is decreased by 50% during rain, while all Fire-type moves will fail during heavy rain. When Water Sport is in the effect, the power of Fire-type moves are decreased by 50%. When used under the effect of Powder, Fire attacks will damage the user by 1/4 of its max HP instead of executing normally.

Because Fire is super effective against Grass and Bug, it combines well with Ground-type attacks.
