G-Max Fireball (Japanese: キョダイカキュウ Kyodai Fireball) is a damage-dealing Fire-type G-Max Move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the exclusive G-Max Move of Gigantamax Cinderace.


G-Max Fireball inflicts damage, ignoring all ignorable Abilities during the execution of that move. (Ignorable Abilities are most Abilities that could potentially negatively affect the success, damage, or effects of a move if possessed by the target of a move or its allies—such as Multiscale and Friend Guard.)

Whether it is a special or physical move depends on the move it is based on. Unlike most other G-Max Moves, its power is 160 regardless of the base move.
