Fusion Flare (Japanese: クロスフレイム Cross Flame) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation V. It is the signature move of Reshiram and White Kyurem.


Fusion Flare inflicts damage. The base power of Fusion Flare will double if another Pokémon uses Fusion Bolt or Bolt Strike immediately before the Pokémon using Fusion Flare, but only during that use. Likewise, it will double the power of Fusion Bolt if Fusion Flare is used immediately before the Pokémon using Fusion Bolt, during that use. When Fusion Bolt or Bolt Strike is used before this move, or a critical hit is made, this move's animation changes. If the user is frozen, Fusion Flare will thaw it.


Games Description
