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.
