| Received Fire
Flash Fire (Japanese: もらいび Received Fire) is an ability introduced in Generation III. Eighteen Pokémon can have this ability, all of them of the Fire-type.
Flash Fire powers up Fire-type moves if hit by fire. This ability makes the user immune to Fire-type damage and when hit by a Fire-type move, Flash Fire will be activated. While subsequent hits by Fire-type moves will not provide a further increase in the damage of Fire-type attacks, it will still not take any damage. This ability is not activated by the burned status unless it is caused by a move which is Fire-type.
Flash Fire is not active while the user is frozen.
Outside of battle
Flash Fire has no effect outside of battle.
