Flash Fire (Japanese: もらいび Received Fire) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Eighteen Pokémon can have this Ability, all of them of the Fire-type.
Generations III and IV
Flash Fire makes the user immune to Fire-type moves and will activate when hit by one. When activated, the power of the user's Fire-type moves is increased by 1.5×. While subsequent hits by Fire-type moves will not provide further increase in power, the user remains immune to their effects. This Ability is not activated by the burned status and will not work while the user is frozen.
If the user with Flash Fire Protects on the turn a Fire-type move is used on it, Flash Fire will not activate.
Flash Fire is active even if the user is frozen.
Outside of battle
Flash Fire has no effect outside of battle.
