Fire type moves would do 5x damage

4(super-effective damage) X 1.25(Dry Skin) = 5

It is possible for a move to do over 4x damage in certain circumstances, for example the use of Forest's Curse, which adds a Grass typing.
An example of this is Escavalier, who under the effect of Forest's Curse takes 8x damage from Fire type moves:
4(original super-effective damage) X 2 = 8

(1/8): Grass
(1/4): x
(1/2): Normal, Water, Electric, Ground, Psychic, Dragon, Steel, Fairy
