In the games

 
Mr. Fuego in the Fuego Ironworks

After getting through the maze in the Fuego Ironworks interior, the player reaches the blast furnace and Mr. Fuego. When talked to, he will give the player a Fire Stone. In Pokémon Platinum, instead of a Fire Stone, he will offer the player a repeatable item trade: if the player gives him one Star Piece, he will give one of each color Shard in return.

Fuego Ironworks

  • First encounter
"Well, hello! It's not often I get a visitor here. I tried to make the ironworks run better with the moving floor tiles. But no one was happy about it! They said the moving floor made them dizzy! But you don't want to listen to me whine. Here's a souvenir!"
  • Subsequent encounters
"My ironworks would be nothing if there were no iron. That's why I'm always thankful for nature supplying me with iron."

"My ironworks makes iron by removing impurities from iron ore. In the process we find a variety of colored shards. If you'd like, we can trade Star Pieces for these Shards?"
Yes: "There you are-- red, blue, yellow, and green. Shards in different colors! My Ironworks would be nothing if there were no iron. That's why I'm always thankful for nature supplying me with iron."
No: "You're not trading?!"
  • Subsequent encounters
  • If the player has a Star Piece in their Bag
"Are you interested? Want to trade Star Pieces for Shards?"
Yes: "There you are-- red, blue, yellow, and green. Shards in different colors! My Ironworks would be nothing if there were no iron. That's why I'm always thankful for nature supplying me with iron."

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Mr. Fuego first appears in the Pokémon Adventures manga in Maddening Magby, where Pearl meets up with Rayler, then still a wild Luxray, and wanders near the Fuego Ironworks. Having accidentally trapped himself in a confined room after inadvertently finding out about Team Galactic's plans of detonating the Galactic bomb, Mr. Fuego narrowly avoids their grasp by using his moving floor tiles. However, the cunning evildoers wouldn't let him off that easy and left a pack of Magby to guard over him. Pearl readily defeats them, but accidentally steps on a tile that leads straight to a melting pot.

With Rayler's help, however, the boy manages to escape the predicament and defeat the final Pokémon that the Grunts released to stand guard, and after gaining the information from the old man, leaves for Eterna City.
