Best Team to Pair with Fuecoco

Fuecoco is a fire-type Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. In the Pokemon games, fire types are pretty hard to come by. So starting with a fire type is not a bad idea. Fuecoco being a fire-type, is weak to water types. But it is good against steel and also resists Fairy-type, making him a pretty good Pokemon at all game stages.

With Fuecoco in your team, you need to find other types of Pokemon that will cover for his weakness and support him in battle. There are a lot of great choices when it comes to team building with him. Here are five of our favorite options to pair with Fuecoco in no particular order.


Every team needs an electric type to go with the starter Pokemon. For a Fuecoco team, Shinx is a good choice for the electric Pokemon. It is reliable and can be found pretty early in the game. Shinx evolves from level 15 to Luxio and level 30 to Luxary.

It will be a good choice for all the stages of the game to pair with your starter since it is only weak to ground. All other types do average damage to Shinx, but it resists electric steel and flying types. While it is a good choice for the early games, you can replace him in the late game if you find an electric type you like.

Paldean Wooper

Paldean Wooper is a newer version of Wooper in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. While you cannot find the normal Wooper in the wild this time in the game, you can trade your Paldean Wooper for a normal one if you want to. Either Wooper is good to pair with Fuecoco. That is because it evolves at level 20 and becomes a tank for the team. It can learn some good support moves to support the whole team.

Magikarp is one of the Pokemon that doesn’t start too well. But if you know Pokemon, you will know it will eventually evolve into Gyarados after level 20. Gyarados is very crucial for a Fuecoco team because of his type. Fuecoco is weak to fire, while Gyarados is one of the best water types you can have. So make sure to catch a Magikarp to evolve it as soon as possible if you are a Fuecoco starter.


Pawniard is a dark/steel-type Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. You can find this Pokemon in East province area three or South province area five in River and Rocky biomes. Pawniard is a niche pokemon to use. That is because it is very weak in fighting, fire, and ground types. But if you avoid these three types with this Pokemon, it will be great against other types.

One downside of Pawniard is it doesn’t evolve until level 52. But don’t let that fool you into not using him. It is terrific even without evolving. And you can always use XP boosting items to level up quickly and evolve him to make him even stronger.


Gible is another strong attacker in many Pokemon games. In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, that is no different. You can use this slot as a flexible unit. But Gible is a good choice for the team. It is pretty weak to the fairy type, which the starter covers. And his evolutions only make him stronger.

At level 24, It evolves into Gabite, and at level 48, into Garchomp. After becoming Garchomp, it becomes so powerful that many consider it a pseudo-legendary pokemon. So it is never a bad idea to have him at the party.
