Flash Fire

Flavor Text

Powers up the Pokémon’s Fire-type moves if it’s hit by one.


This Pokémon is immune to Fire-type moves. Once this Pokémon has been hit by a Fire move, its own Fire moves will inflict 1.5× as much damage until it leaves battle.

The Fire damage bonus is retained even if the Pokémon is frozen and thawed or the ability is lost or disabled. Fire moves will ignore this Pokémon's Substitute. This ability takes effect even on non-damaging moves, i.e. Will-O-Wisp.

Out-of-Battle Effect

If the lead Pokémon has this ability, there is a 50% chance that encounters will be with a Fire Pokémon, if applicable.
