Magma Storm (Japanese: マグマストーム Magma Storm) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation IV. It is the signature move of Heatran.

Effect

Generation IV

Magma Storm deals damage and binds the target for two to five turns. A bound target cannot switch out or flee, and takes damage equal to 1/16 of its maximum HP at the end of each turn. If a bound Pokémon uses Rapid Spin, it will be freed. If a Pokémon has Run Away or is holding a Smoke Ball, it can flee even when bound (but still cannot switch out); if a Pokémon has a Shed Shell, it can switch out even when bound (but cannot flee). A Pokémon can only be bound by one move at a time, and the effect disappears if the user is no longer on the field.

If the user of Magma Storm is holding a Grip Claw, the duration will always be 5 turns.

Magma Storm has an accuracy of 70% and a base power of 120.

Generation V

Magma Storm's accuracy was increased to 75%.

Magma Storm now traps the target for four to five turns. If the user of Magma Storm is holding a Grip Claw, the duration will be 7 turns.

If the user is holding a Binding Band, the target takes damage equal to 1/8 of its maximum HP instead of 1/16.

Generation VI

Magma Storm's base power is now 100.

A Pokémon bound by Magma Storm now takes damage equal to 1/8 of its maximum HP at the end of each turn. If the user is holding a Binding Band, the target takes damage equal to 1/6 of its maximum HP instead.
