10 Incineroar

If your not already convinced that Incineroar is a hot Pokémon, just take a look at its flaming belt. Incineroar produces flames and flaming attacks from its belt, making this one champion belt that is too hot to handle.

According to Incineroar's Pokédex entry from Pokémon Ultra Moon, "When its fighting spirit is set alight, the flames around its waist become specially intense." Also a Dark-type Pokémon, Incineroar acts nonchalant with most trainers. It will deliver a fiery attack, however, if in the right mood.

9 Arcanine

Over the years, we've seen Arcanine used by multiple trainers, including Blaine and Gary. In the episode titled "Johto League Champions," we saw trainers Ramona and Keegan battle with three Arcanines. Arcanine is a fast Pokémon that leaves a blinding blaze in its wake.

According to Arcanine's Pokédex entry, "Arcanine is known for its high speed. It is said to be capable of running over 6,200 miles in a single day and night. The fire that blazes wildly within this Pokémon's body is its source of power."

8 Houndoom

At first glance, Houndoom appears to be an intimidating Pokémon. It is a Pokémon that has been used by the most experienced trainers. Houndoom is a Dark-type and Fire-type Pokémon which has a black exterior. It has white bands around its neck and back with a skull pendant on its chest.

Its curved horns are larger on males than they are on females. By leveling up, Houndoom can learn powerful Fire-type attacks such as Inferno, Flamethrower, and Fire Fang. Houndoom is one of the hottest Pokémon in existence.

7 Ho-Oh

The mystical, legendary bird from the first episode of Pokémon left Ash bewildered over what he had seen. From then on, Ash knew that in the world of Pokémon, there were still many mysteries to uncover.

According to Ho-Oh's Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Pokédex entry, "Ho-Oh's feathers glow in seven colors depending on the angle at which they are struck by light. These feathers are said to bring happiness to the bearers. Ho-Oh is said to live at the foot of a rainbow."

6 Typhlosion

Often, someone's favorite Pokémon generation is determined by which they grew up in. The heydays of Pokémon contained Generation II, a generation widely considered to be the greatest of all time. In a three-stage evolution chain, Typhlosion is the third-stage Pokémon.

If you were wise to the game, you might have realized that Cyndaquil isn't the best Generation II starter choice. The most powerful move that Typhlosion will learn is Flamethrower, a strong but inferior move to Solar Beam and Hydro Pump. Despite weak moves, Typhlosion is capable of substantial damage which stems from its high Special Attack.

5 Charizard

Since the first season of the Pokémon anime, Charizard has been an integral part of Pokémon. Due to their rarity, misprinted trading cards are more valuable than their counterpart. As detailed by, a shadowless first edition Charizard is valued at approximately $11,999.

A shadowless Charizard card is missing the shadow, which makes it a rare find indeed. Charizard can melt anything, and its fire burns even warmer after encountering a tough foe. You'll notice Charizard is heating up once the flame at the tip of its tail burns brighter.

4 Entei

It's rare to encounter an Entei, but if a trainer does, they will have witnessed a legendary Pokémon of Generation II. It is almost like a crossover between a sabertooth tiger and a hound.

Entei is a Fire-type Pokémon with exceptionally high stats in HP and Attack. Impractical since Fire-type moves rely on Special Attack and not Attack, but at least it has high stats all-around. With moves like Eruption, Fire Blast, and Flamethrower, Entei is not a Pokémon to be underestimated.

3 Magmortar

Magmar did not have an evolved form before Generation IV. As the third-stage Pokémon in its evolutionary chain, Magmortar is the final form of Magby and Magmar. A Magmortar can be acquired by trading a Magmar holding Magmarizer. With "magma" in its name, it's not surprising that Magmortar is one of the hottest Fire-type Pokémon.

Flames sit on the head of Magmortar. It is capable of launching fireballs that are over 3,600 degrees Fahrenheit! Magmortar is most commonly found in volcanic craters or in factories where it provides heat for metalwork.

2 Moltres

According to its Pokédex entry in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, "Moltres is a legendary bird Pokémon that has the ability to control fire. If this Pokémon is injured, it is said to dip its body in the molten magma of a volcano to burn and heal itself."

With a Pokédex entry this flaming, it's safe to say that Moltres is a scorching Pokémon. Moltres is said to be able to change the season from winter to spring with its fire dust. Moltres is one of the hottest Pokémon of all time.

1 Primal Groudon

Primal Groudon is enigmatic and one of the most violently dangerous Pokémon. Unlike a normal Groudon, Primal Groudon is part Fire-type. It weighs more than two tons and is said to have been "asleep in underground magma ever since it fiercely fought Kyogre long ago."

Any Pokémon who can withstand the heat of magma must be a scorching Pokémon. We can't forget Primal Groudon's display of tremendous power in Pokémon Generation's episode 7. Primal Groudon can leave islands in ruins with his Fire-type power. Pokémon Generation's episode 7 is one episode of Pokémon Generations you can't miss!
