Pokémon GO: How to Catch Fire-Type Pokémon

Don't burn yourself out looking for Fire-Types in Pokémon GO.

by Connor Christie


Pokémon GO is full of Fire-type fan favourites, with many series standouts being of the flame-breathing variation. However, with the usual scale of in-game regions turned up to a real-world full of Pokémon, it can be hard to know where to look. In this guide, we’ll give you the tips and tricks you need to be a heat-seeking monster hunter.

Catching Fire-Type Pokémon in Pokémon GO

First off, unlike Grass-type Pokémon who you can find best out in the sticks, Fire-types in Pokémon GO are often located in residential areas, neighborhoods, and cities. While this sounds vague, it also sounds like it covers almost all urban and suburban areas, meaning a fiery new catch is never much further than around the corner.


Unsurprisingly, Fire-Types are also often found in dry climates or even just in warmer areas. A hot day on the beach might seem like it’s more apt for Water-type Pokémon, but it’s thought that the sun and sand bring out more Fire-Types who can stand the heat. So if you’re planning a day out to the coast anytime soon, don’t forget to stock up on Incense and Lure modules.

The Fire typing also accounts for a great deal of Legendary Pokémon currently available. Make sure to keep your eye on events and Raid Boss Pokémon to see if the likes of Heatran, Entei, or Moltres make a return appearance. It’s worth saying that no matter your area, if the weather is Sunny/Clear outside, then you’ve both an increased chance of bumping into Fire-types, as well as a stardust boost on capture.

That’s our guide for finding the next Fire-Type scorcher for your Pokémon GO team. For more on Niantic’s AR hit, visit our dedicated page, full of all the latest Pokémon GO news as well as other guides on catching them all.
