Pokemon: Top 3 Fire Type Starters
Hello, everybody! In this article, I, TepigTheBeast, will tell you the top 3 grass type starters. In this article you will learn what Pokemon to pick to avoid looking like a PokeNoob! Now, let's begin!
Top 3 Fire Type Starters in Pokemon
Continue reading for more information on each of these fire type starters.
Delphox is the 6th fire starter Pokemon, but doesn't earn 6th place.
Delphox is the 3rd best fire starter because it has some popularity, good stats, and movepool. It has very high SP attack and SP Defense and speed, but low attack, so try to use indirect moves to do a lot of damage, which it learns a lot, giving this Pokemon a fortune.
What's even better is that you can set up Delphox's moves with different types it learns through leveling up, such as Normal, Fire, Ghost, Psychic, and Dark type moves.
Yes, it may have a bunch of different weaknesses (five, to be exact), but it also has more resistances (a total of seven), making this Pokemon bulky and able to stand up to some strong moves.
What's even better is that it can learn Solar Beam, a grass type move, to counter water types and trick your opponents. Be careful though, because there are water types who are faster than Delphox. For an example, Greninja, a faster water type, can outspeed Delphox with any water type move and knock-out Delphox. Still, this Fire/Psychic starter is a great Pokemon to pick and have on your team.
2. Charizard (and Mega Charizard X&Y)
Charizard is the 1st Fire type starter ever, and is one of the most popular/overrated Pokemon ever. You were probably thinking that Charizard would be the best Fire starter, but there's actually an even better one.
Anyways, Charizard has very high SP Attack and Speed, so teach it mostly indirect moves. It can last a couple of hits with its decent defense and health.
What's even better about Charizard is that it has two different mega evolutions: Charizard X and Charizard Y. If you want your Charizard to be offensive, you might want to go with Charizard X, as it gains a huge boost in its attack and special attack. If you want your Charizard to just be specially defensive and a fast special sweeper, than Charizard Y is for you, as it gains a high boost in SP stats. It can also learn Dragon Dance, which boosts your attack and speed, making it even faster and harder for your opponents to knock you out.
Its movepool contains Fire, Normal, Ghost, Dragon, and Flying type moves, so Charizard has even more protection. Like Delphox, it can learn Solar Beam to counter those annoying Water types that can beat Charizard up. It also has double the amount of resistances than weaknesses (seven of them).
The only downside about Charizard is its weakness to those annoying Rock types, which it is 4x weak to. Try to avoid sending out Charizard when there is a Rock type Pokemon. Also, try to avoid Charizard getting hit with Stealth Rock, as it will take away 50% of Charizard's health. Have another Pokemon with Defog or Rapid Spin on your team to whack the Stealth Rock away.
1. Blaziken (and Mega Blaziken)
Blaziken is another popular Pokemon, and is also the 3rd Fire starter to be introduced in Pokemon. Blaziken has very high attack and SP attack, and these are its top stats.
Its other stats are decent too, even though its defenses are the lowest, so be careful about taking hits. It has more resistances than weaknesses (six resistances and four weaknesses), so it can possibly take some hits. But what is really great about this Pokemon is its ability: One of Blaziken's abilities is Speed Boost, which raises the speed stat every turn. I bet you're thinking, how is Blaziken going to survive a hit if its defenses are low? Well, it can learn Protect, which protects the user from being hit for 1 turn. Then, Blaziken will be an outspeeding attacker.
If you want to take the chance, you can teach it Swords Dance to double your attack to make it a killing machine. Also, Blaziken has a Mega Evolution, which gives it a huge stat boost in all of its stats, making this Pokemon almost unstoppable. It has very powerful moves like Flare Blitz and High Jump Kick, but these can do recoil damage, so you might want to teach it some other strong moves that don't cause recoil. Other than that, this is a great Pokemon to pick.
Before I made this article, I was considering both Delphox and Typhlosion for 3rd place.
I decided it would be Delphox because Delphox has a wider variety of moves than Typhlosion. Also, Delphox has more defenses than Typhlosion.
Infernape also could've been put in 3rd place on the list if its defenses were higher. Still, Typhlosion and Infernape are good starters to have. This is why they're on the "Honorable Mentions" list.
