Fire-type is one of 18 type classifications that is assigned to type-moves and Pokemon who's physiology are closely associated with fire or intense heat. These types are often found in, or around, fiery, molten, or generally hot locations suitable to their tolerance and comfort.
Defensively, Fire-typed Pokemon are resistant against Grass-, Bug-, and other Fire-type moves; and weak against Water-, Ground-, and Rock-typed attacks. Offensively, Fire-type moves are effective against Grass-, Bug-, and Ice-typed Pokemon, while lacking in effectiveness against Dragon-, Water-, Rock-, and other Fire-typed Pokemon.
This is the signature Pokemon type encountered at the Brimber City Gym.
