I usually use every type, so it's kinda hard to say....I usually get caught up before the e4 even, raising pokes I think look cool, or have somewhat gimmicky battle methods (For the longest time in gen 5, I had an unfezant running Tailwind + Air Slash, even though it's sp.atk is just bad).
I rarely end up having a fire type on my team unless I chose the fire starter, which I won't be doing. I don't tend to like the designs very much and there aren't usually very many fire types compared to other types.
