Wow, I Know soooooo many good fire types, this is going to be tough to choose. Im Going To Summarize all the fire types that are super-strong and at the end, I will choose the one I decide on.
Houndoom: Wow, In My Platinum, I Recently Started Using This Guy, I Was Just Going To Test him out against the ice gym, but he was too powerful for me to get rid of, so I have kept him on my team, as he is now a lvl 50. He Learns Great Moves, With Great Stats. With Amazing Attack, Special Attack, and Speed(My Favorite Stats) and looking sweet, Houndoom Is A Classic. Not To Mention The 100s of great strategys he can use.
Charizard: My First Lvl 100, I Found Him Unstoppable(Even to Stealth Rock), Whenever I have used him. Amazing Movesets, he can also cover his weaknesses, as well as K'Oing Walls without a problem and Great STAB Moves. He Has Amazing Stats, and with some good ev training, he cant be beat.
Arcanine: The Highest Total Base Stat Of All Non-Legendary Fire Types, He HAD to be on this list. Amazing Moves, and Coverage of all of his weaknesses with solarbeam, hes pretty hard to defeat, as he has good defenses too. With Great Attack(And Sp. Attack), he can be an excellent sweeper.
Magmorter: He Has Almost The Best Nonlegendary Special Attack Stat, Plus Great Attack, too. When Facing him, hes hard to defeat. Add In His Great Movesets, and He Is One Tough Pokemon. AS Usual Though, His Low Defense, Gives Him A Huge Weakness against Ground and Rock, so as with all pokemon, it is possible to defeat him.
Blaziken: The Highest Base Attack Of All The Starters, and Great Sp. Attack, too, I Couldnt keep him off this list. He Can Cover Most Of His Weaknesses, with great moves to back up his stats. He Is Incredibly hard to defeat, properly ev trained, and is often used as he has a strong duel type, without a 4x weakness.
Typhlosion: The Same Awesome Stats as Charizard, and Great Moves To Back it up, Plus No 4x weakness, its hard to beat him. His Only Problem, is Overall, His Attack isnt high enough to hit down hard with physical moves, and he doesnt have the defense, to set much up. Charizard would be the same way, but being a flying type, he has enough not very effective types to set things up.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....................Who To Choose? Strong Pokemon Fire Types Are, Hard To Choose a "Best One". Ive Narrowed it down, now, to:
Charizard(Because his awesome duel typing, moves and stats)
Houndoom(With Only one low Stat, hes hard to defeat, with power, and speed)
Typhlosion(Same Stats as Charizard)
Arcanine(Good stats, including defense, for setting things up like sunny day)
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm....... All Right, Ive Chosen. The Winner Is, For Its Power, and Strength, and one of the best pokemon, around, I, Swampert, Have Chosen, From My Second Favorite Type, The Best Pokemon, is................................................................................
Charizard! The Reasons? Movesets, Stats, Everything fire type pokemon are known for. He is The Classic Popular Original Fire Type, With The Legendary Power That Started in The Original Generation 1 Games. That Is Why Charizard, As Everyone Loves Him, is The BEST Fire Type Pokemon.
