Trivia

  • Will-O-Wisp is the only Status move move that inflicts burn.
  • Ralts can learn it by breeding, but not by TM.
  • In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, the animation shows the flames being purple, although the description says they are bluish white.
  • Vulpix is the only non Template:Type2 to learn it by level up.
  • Will-O-Wisp is the only move that directly causes a burn without doing damage.
  • Even though Will-O-Wisp is a Status move, it's always shown as an offensive move in the anime never causing any burns at all, in one instance being shown to equal Flamethrower in terms of power.
