Flash (Japanese: フラッシュ Flash) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation I. In Generations I through III, it was HM05, and in Generations IV through VI, it was TM70.

Effect

In battle

Generations I to III

Flash decreases the target's accuracy stat by one stage.

The accuracy of Flash is 70% in these generations.

Generation IV onward

The accuracy of Flash changes to 100%.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Flash, the user's evasion raises one stage.

Outside of battle

Generations I to V

Outside of battle, Flash will illuminate dark caves. The effect will last until the player exits the cave. When the player re-enters the cave, it will be dark again.

In Generation I, Generation II, and Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, it will light up the entire screen. In other games, it only illuminates a large circle around the player.

Generation VI

In Pokémon X and Y, as there are no dark caves to be found, Flash will instead cause the screen to zoom out, revealing more of the surrounding area than normally is visible. In addition, it also decreases the chance of encountering wild Pokémon.

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, dark areas where Flash can be used to light up the surroundings are present once again. However, in this game the dark areas are shown to be more dimly lit rather than completely dark, making the move less needed than before.
