    Default Battle of Kanto Fire Types

    Not including Moltres since it's legendary... Anyway, there were very little fire types back in the day, same with ice really. So I thought this would be an interesting poll.

    So, we have the classic Charmander family who at final stage of evolution turn dual typed, the powerful Growlithe family, the menacing looking Magmar who didn't have evos until Gen 2, and the speedy Vulpix and Ponyta families... Oh, and Flareon, who is meh.

    • Whose design do you prefer?
    • Who is the best battler?
    • Who is the most useful?
    • Who is the worst of all of them?

    In terms of design, I prefer Ninetales, it's so beautiful looking and not generic red/orange colored like most, but a whitish–yellow. I do find Flareon cute though.

    Best battler? Magmar with variety of moves and neat status, it has helped me a lot in the past at one point.

    Most useful would go to Charizard with it's dual–typing, it can fly AND dig. With it learning steel and dragon moves now in the newer games makes it more awesome.

    Worst of them... Uh... Well, Ponyta is annoying, but I love horses... I've never used Growlithe in battle except in Blue and XD really. But Flareon is no doubt the worst, it doesn't match up as well as the other fire–types and other two original evos.

    Growlith and Arcanine! Favorite pokemon period (which is odd since I generally think Gen I as uncreative) Charizard is second and Ninetales is third

    Charizard is my favorite Gen I fire-type.

    Hey! Don't make fun of Flareon! He's cool!

    (Nevertheless I voted for Ponyta)

    The Sinnoh games first got me into Ponyta/Rapidash, which I know some people will roll their eyes at for, but the horseys are still neat

    I'd have to say Ninetales. It's my favorite Fire type and has proved extremely useful for me in the past.

    Flareon= Infinite worst. It's movepool sucks, with the only STAB moves being incredibly weak.

    Learn from mistakes, whether it's yours or someone elses. It's the only way to survive.

    not after a SR it is not. out of the ones you listed, Charizard is takes the most damage form SR.

    Going with Arcanine, Intimidate+Extreme Speed.

    And personally i thought the Ninetail should have been Ghost/Fire as Ninetails are supernatural creatures

    Stealth Rock... I've heard of it, but never seen it used in a battle really. Does it even hit someone while underground/diving? .-.

    The best of Kanto has to be Arcanine--most of the others need big letup with DW abilities. DW Ninetales and Magmortar follow in 2nd and 3rd.

    Charizard's DW ability is a let down (well, it makes Charizard sun-reliant, for one) and doesn't make too much sense (which is also a letdown), though it is an improvement (but a somewhat costly one, as well). Any of Air Lock, Competitive Spirit, Intimidate, Mold Breaker, No Guard, Pressure, Rivalry, and/or Sheer Force would've all made more sense.

    He was talking use outside of battle--see his mention of HMs. And even in battle, Stealth Rock is a team factor: it doesn't affect pokemon in singular matchups. Since it's a team factor, it's up for the team to manage, clear or prevent.

    Besides being a strange (retired) battler with a storied (I've been everywhere, man!), legendary, mythical, exaggerated, and relatively unknown career... well, that's it. I plan on writing stories though. And oh! I play games (maker of this fun one).

    And I take hoedowns seriously. (And oh, pachiba, WHERE ARE YOU!?!?)

    Had I not started with Charmander in the original games, I probably would pick Vulpix/Ninetales. They're awesome too.

    But I never really liked Magmar or Arcanine.

    Hate to surprise people, but I'm actually a girl. xD

    I feel like I'm the only minority that loves Magmar. :V

    Arcanine looks the best and has epic amounts of style. Look at that hair.

    I've always been a Magmar fan, but Ninetales and Arcanine have undeniable charm! They're pretty.

    No.kidding.

    Well I like Magmar more than you know. And you know, he has more speed than Magmortar. Magmortar isn't too much of an improvement over Magmar, and pales in comparison to Electivire as far as improvements go. Magmortar's cannon hands are its best aesthetic improvement, and that's about it in that department. However, Magmortar does do one thing for Magmar's line... but I'll keep that a guarded secret.

    Ninetales is pretty, and the real animal fox is a pretty creature too. Arcanine doesn't really strike me as pretty though, though it does have a pretty high passing grade in the looks department.
