Characteristics

Fire is a very poor type defensively. Ground, Rock, and Water attacks are all very common, while most of the Fire type's resistances are of little use. Fire-type Pokémon will not survive very long in battle; they must deal damage quickly in order to earn their slot on a team.

Offensively, Fire is much more useful. The ability to deal super-effective damage to Steel-type Pokémon is very useful for Physical Pokémon, as many Steel-type Pokémon typically have high defense but a low special defense and would have little trouble with any physical moves thrown at them. However, Fire is not a good type to rely on as a primary source of damage.

Quantity wise fire types are rare, with only 16 fully evolved Pokémon among them, 4 of them being legendary and 4 of them Starter Pokémon.
