Trivia

  • Mew, though repeatedly said on the Pokédex to be able to learn any move, is not able to learn Blast Burn because the tutors only want to teach it to Fire-type starter Pokémon.
  • Despite being called Blast Burn in numerous languages, it cannot inflict the burn status ailment.
  • Despite being called the strongest Fire-type move, V-create has a base power of 180, 30 more than Blast Burn.
    • However, Blast Burn was the strongest Fire-type move prior to Generation V, and is still the strongest Fire-type move that is not event-exclusive.
