I've always had a thing for inflation with certain abnormal substances, like some kind of energy (e.g. electricity, as little sense as that makes), lava (assuming the inflatee can take it, I might get sadistic, but filling a character with lava isn't something I'd do unless they were resistant in some way), or in this case, fire. I think it's because it's all glow-y, giving the perfect excuse to make a character very transparent.
At the same time, back before I really even understood my interest in inflation, I'd fantasize about things like this with a character being inflated by whatever it is that they can spit out (e.g. a water pokémon being plugged up and inflating with water, or a fire pokémon holding in fire in this case). I think it was just the sadism speaking, what with the "hoist by their own petard"-esque quality of it all. Even if I like seeing a character forcefully inflated past their limit, there's something else that I find appealing about a character doing it to themselves, whether they intend to actually pop or not.
Anywho, like usual, any feedback is appreciated.
