Fire Fang (Japanese: ほのおのキバ Fire Fang) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation IV.
Fire Fang deals damage and has a 10% chance of burning the opponent. It also has a 10% chance of causing the target to flinch, if the user attacks before the target.
Due to a presumed glitch, Fire Fang is able to hit through Wonder Guard, even if the target does not have a weakness to Fire-type moves. This does not apply to Ice Fang and Thunder Fang.
Fire Fang no longer bypasses Wonder Guard.
