The 10 best Fire Pokemon of all time

The best Fire Pokémon are often seen as cool and powerful, but there can also be beauty and grace behind the flames

Statistically speaking, if you played the original Red & Blue back in the day, you probably picked the Fire-type starter. It’s easy to see why, for a kid experiencing the Pokémon world for the first time, they certainly look the coolest, and it’s to see the power behind unrelenting flames.
