Greetings, fellow trainers! I welcome you to...

The Fire Pokemon Fanclub


Fire is another name of passion. In the Pokemon world, Fire is one of the 17 elemental types, a primarily offense-oriented type focusing on a high-risk high-return playstyle. It is fragile, like a real flame; but while it lasts, it make its presence felt and if given the opportunity, it can result in devastation. Fire can have many fascinating faces; from the charming Ninetales to the cool Arcanine; from the ever-so-cute Victini to the awe-inspiring Ho-oh. The Fortress of Flame is dedicated to these magnificent creatures.

If you are also fascinated by Fire Pokemon, or even if you're just a little interested in them, feel free to join FoF. As a member, you would be able to...
