It’s water and bug Pokemon which make fire type move “not super effective” against it. It can also use Bubble, so it’s better not to use fire Pokemon against this one (especially if your fire Pokemon is under-leveled). However it’s not though so you can kill it very easily using normal type move quickly.

2nd Pokemon: Vivillon (lvl 12)

Bug and Flying. It’s time to use your fire Pokemon, it will go down in no time.
