Trivia

Guiding Flame's Japanese name; むかえび mukaebi, is a flame lit to welcome spirits of the deceased. It is lit as part of the Obon Festival. The Japanese name for Fire Blast, daimonji, is also a tradition observed as part of the festival.

Origin

Fire Blast is a move in the Pokémon games that Ninetales can learn via TM38, or via level-up as a Vulpix starting Generation IV. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Gold, though it is slightly reworded.
