From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Magma Storm (Japanese: マグマストーム) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation IV, and is Heatran's signature move. It is considered a more powerful form of Fire Spin.
Magma Storm traps the target in pillars of fire for 2-5 turns and inflicts damage at the end of each turn. If the user of Magma Storm is holding a Grip Claw, the duration of Magma Storm is always 5 turns.
If a wild Pokémon uses Magma Storm on the player's Pokémon, the player may escape if his or her Pokémon has the Run Away ability. However, Run Away does not allow the player to switch the Pokémon out.
- This move is somewhat like a more powerful version of the move Fire Spin. However, Fire Spin starts out with 15 PP, and this move starts out with only 5 PP.
