    We know that Uchiha are common for her Sharingan and her natural affinity fo fire. After seeing Sasuke making lightning moves with ease why he isn't doing some cool fire-moves...

    e. g.

    instead of Chidori Nagashi he could use fire to burn the oppnents insetad of stunning them

    For plot reasons... burning Naruto and Sai to cinders is bad for the plot.

    Technically he could've probably put a FAR higher charge into his kusanagi when he impaled Yamato and killed him too, instead of just shunning. It's just as he's said though, Itachi is the only one he really wants to kill.

    Actually he hasn't been shown in an extended fight scene, well except for short "skirmishes" with Team 7 and Orochimaru. I'm sure we'll see more Katon variations in due time.

    And of course "that jutsu" with the tiger seal could've been one.

    Because Katons never work.

    For a serious answer, Lightning probably suits his fighting style better, not to mention Katon-affinity seems to be what Itachi has going so he probably doesn't want to be like his brother.

    Every time a Katon has been used, it pretty fails to burn the intended target.

    Sasuke? His Katons are only good for distracting.
    Itachi? Missed.
    Kakuzu? Dodged.
    Jiraiya? LOL.

    The only person whose ever made Katons work was Aoba in filler, and we all know Sasuke isn't Aoba level.

    If he can do that, he will most likely use it this arc.

    His affinity is most likely Raiton and it seems to go well with his fighting style. He may have some more Katons but hasn't gotten the chance to show them yet.

    Because his fire jutsu is associated with the Fire Village of Konoha and he wants to break all ties from Konoha and his friends there.

    Naruto is using Wind chakra to save Sasuke's "Burning fire". In the same arc the "Will of fire" is explained. It's a plot device... why am I the only one to notice that?

    His Lightning moves are better but his affinity is not only lightning but fire as well.

    He probably still use Katon jutsus.

    The only time a katon ever worked is when Asuma burned himself with one.

    Why do you guys hate on Katon? The strongest ninjutsu we've seen, maybe 2nd strongest, is a Katon. Sandaime whipped out some impressive Katon's during the battle.

    The problem is we've only seen C-Rank Katons. When do C-Rank jutsu's ever do anything serious anyway?

    Ameratsu "did the impossible" according to Jiraiya. Just wait.

    Also, it's much more difficult to shape Katon than it is Raiton, at least from what we've seen. And dense Raiton's are more powerful and thus better fit for his style.

    If fire techniques were worthless, Itachi and Kisame would be Mountain Toad doodoo right now.

    Seriously, does a bunch of people saying, "this sucks" and "QFT" make an inaccurate statement magically more accurate? :amuse

    Fire is typically used as a distraction while something else is being prepared to capitalize on it, just like any other jutsu.

    At this stage of the game, no Katon short of Amaterasu will work. Even Ino says that they fail. :D

    someone mentioned plot device, and they're probably right.

    we already know he can use katon jutsus. kishi's brought in naruto's affinity for wind recently, so we can see the relationship between wind and fire (wind complements fire).

    so instead, kishi has to focus more on raiton jutsus so that we can also see what naruto's affinity will work against, as kishi impressed upon his readers that wind will cut lightning.

    by emphasising sasuke's use of raiton (because his predisposition towards katon jutsus was played up in part 1), we're also setting up for the fujin vs raijin fight that was illustrated just recently.
