    There's also a lack of grass types if you don't choose Turtwig or if you're tired of using Budew/Roselia/Roserade.

    I didn't really notice about this back then, because I used a Skuntank and he learned Flamethrower. I think there are many other options you could use i.e. not strictly a Fire type but a Pokemon who can use Fire attacks. Azelf, for example.

    I ran a steel monotype challenge in pearl (but i only ended up using 3 pokes) not long ago and this went well due to the lack of counters, it may not bother some but fire type is one the most popular types.

    There weren't many Fire-types in-game in DP, but that was fixed in Platinum where you could catch Houndour and Magmar, not only Ponyta.

    In my current run of DP I'm not even using a Fire type; Ponyta gets old after a while.

    And the most ridiculous thing is that even Rapidash is better than Infernape. For D/P I never bothered with Fire, they were completely nonexistent to me. In Platinum though, there was the option of turning Eevee into Flareon if you had Fire stone. Then again, I'd rather turn Eevee into Espeon But that's just me though

    Gamefreak did a terrible job with fire types in DPPT, I didn't use a fire type in Diamond or Platinum.
    Gamefreak, seriously? Rapidash and (ugh) Infernape? And I know Platinum gave us Flareon, Houndoom and Magmortar, but none of them really deserve a place in my team.
    I also found the whole idea of only having like half of the pokemon introduced in the regional pokedex incredibly odd.

    Seriously, look at Flint, who only uses two Fire pokemon even though he's a fire specialist Elite Four. I think they should've added at least one or two Sinnoh pokemon that were part fire and you could get Pre-E4. I don't mean make Magmortar available earlier... like completely new pokemon.

    I used Houndoom and Rapidash on Pearl, the fire types were lacking though and as a fire type lover I was disgusted that Sinnoh had only 1 full line native to that region. On Platinum though I traded over Magmar (didn't evolve it though) to make things more interesting.

    Fire-Types od DPPt? I rarely use any. But I did use Houndoom a few times.

    Well, we only had one choice besides chimchar... rapidash. And some people don't even LIKE rapidash! I think that the best way to get fire type moves is using skunktank's flamethrower, unless you picked chimchar. Or you can use rapidash but I don't like him much...
    This "Pokemon Rainbow" rumored game is already killing me. I want it!

    Also, general nintendo fans will probably like my youtube. I make unboxings and collection videos.

    You can get magmortar from pokemon battle revolution then trade it over and use that on your game.

    It was all fine for me using Rapidash. He can be "The Guy" if you know how to use it correctly. That was also mine 'dash : Megahorm/Flare Blitz/Return/Agility
    My Problem witth 'Dash was his Movepool. It was so poorly! Couldn't bother with him when i had a Infernape.

    But yeah, Diamond & Pearl does lack fire types, it was sad, but not a problem

    Must admit, that's why I don't really use fire types in my team, aside from starters because they don't really appeal much to me. That's why in Platinum, you could use better fire types, otherwise, fire types aren't really a big necessity to your team, but they help.

    my gabite knows flamethrower,and i just found out that her sp. attack is really low compared to attack. its still very destructive a nature that increases sp. attack without lowering attack is helpful

    What? It's way better to use his Attack rather than Sp Atk. Garchomp will always deal more damage with it's own STAB, specially if they're Physical like it should be.
    Fires Types are only useful 'cause certains teams tends to be weaken to that specific type (A.K.A Fire), otherwise Fire types is useless if not for that main purpose. This only apply to In-Game, sure xD

    I did have a fire type, but all it was is Infernape. I pwned a lot of gyms with him.
    Check out Dragon-Tamer club..had to remove it because sig was too big. (Mod: As was having the water club)

    Fire pokemon species is scarce in D/P, fire pokemon fans might hate the game.
    I seldom use fire mons in my team. They're quite varied in 5th gen though, but strange thing no fire gym n elite four.

    flamehrower is really nice to have for battling all the scary ice types that do x4 damage and steel types with high defense and my sp. attack is catching up to attack because of its mild nature

    I actually find no problems with fire Pokemon from this region and game. All you have to is train them. I have a well trained Infernape which knows decent moves.
