-type Pokémon are associated with heat, often in the form of flames or lava. Fire-type attacks often have a chance of causing the Burn status effect, though they themselves are immune to it, which reduces the Attack statistic by half as well as taking away hit points each turn it is in effect.
Some Fire types are not affected by Fire type attacks because they have an ability called Flash Fire, which negates all fire damage and raises the power of Fire-type moves at the same time.
