Blaze (Japanese: もうか Raging Flames) is an ability introduced in Generation III. Twelve Pokémon have this ability; each one of them is a member of the evolution family of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, or Sinnoh's Template:Type2 starter Pokémon.
When a Pokémon with Blaze uses a Fire-type move, if it has a third or less of its maximum HP remaining, the damage inflicted will be 1.5× greater.
Outside of battle
Blaze has no effect outside of battle.
