The rest of my team is Sceptile, Manectric/Magneton, Sharpedo/Crawdawnt and Swellow. Now I want a Fire-type!!!

Starmie seems like the better option for a water type imo because of water, dark and psychic being special in this gen and crawdawnt and Sharpedo are more physical
my bad, this is for oras, i wonder how i got my question muddled up
wait, my tag says oras!!!

The amount of Fire types is limited in Ruby and Sapphire, but Numel can be caught fairly early at Route 112. Because in-game is mainly focused on power and offense, I think that Camerupt will do well as its Attack and Special Attack are decent.
It also provides a nice Electric immunity, which your team will benefit from because both Swellow and Sharpedo are weak to it.

Why not Ninetails?
Can be caught at Mt.Pyre.
Good moveset:
-Confuse Ray
Main aim here is to inflict status on the opponent and switch out to last and inflict status on everything. This set also helps out with Steven (champion).

Ninetales is good, it's just that you get it late in the game as a vulpix
