Who are the Fire Gym Leaders & Elite Four?


Fire Gym Leaders are Pokémon Trainers that specialise in the training and battling with Fire type Pokémon. They proved their ability and have become leaders of a City Gym. 

Throughout the Pokémon game series, players have to defeat Gym Leaders before challenging the Elite Four and finally the existing Champion in order to win the games. Within the games, a number of Gym Leaders and one Elite Four Trainer only use Fire type Pokémon. 

To have the best chance of defeating Fire Gym Leaders, the player’s team should include those Pokémon types that are weak to attack by Fire types – Ground, Rock and Water type Pokémon.

Detailed below is a complete Fire Elite Four and Fire Gym Leaders list, with information about that Leader and the Pokémon they typically use in battles.
