Turboblaze (Japanese: ターボブレイズ Turboblaze) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. It is the signature Ability of Reshiram, which White Kyurem adopts.


In battle

Turboblaze ignores the effects of Abilities that could potentially affect the damage or effects of a move that its user executes. For example, a Pokémon with Turboblaze can hit opponents that possess Levitate by using Earthquake. Turboblaze applies regardless of target Pokémon, but only to moves executed by its user (so if two Pokemon in a Double Battle both know Earthquake, only the Pokémon with Turboblaze can hit a Pokémon with Levitate).

Unlike Gastro Acid, which completely negates a target's Ability, the opponents' Abilities otherwise remain in effect:

  • Abilities that prevent status conditions (such as Immunity and Oblivious) will not protect the Pokémon from receiving the status condition; however, many of these Abilities also have effects to cure the Pokémon of the status condition if afflicted, which are not negated by Turboblaze.
  • If a Pokémon with Own Tempo consumes a held Berry that may cause confusion in response to the move of a Pokémon with Turboblaze, it will become confused if it dislikes the flavor (although Own Tempo will then activate and cure it of confusion).

Turboblaze can ignore the Abilities of Pokémon other than the target; for example, if a Pokémon with Turboblaze uses Thunder Wave on a Grass-type Pokémon whose ally has Flower Veil, the target will still be paralyzed.

When a Pokémon with Turboblaze uses a move, even the effects of allies' Abilities (notably Flower Gift, Sweet Veil, Aroma Veil and Flower Veil) are ignored for the duration of that move. As such, if the move of a Pokémon with Turboblaze triggers an Ability (such as Gooey or Cursed Body) or item (such as Destiny Knot), the Pokémon with Turboblaze will not be protected by its allies' Abilities; likewise, if a Destiny Knot held by a Pokémon with Turboblaze is activated during the use of its own move (such as in response to the target's Cute Charm), that target will not be protected by its allies' Aroma Veil. This also means that a Pokémon with Turboblaze will not gain Attack due to an ally's Flower Gift.

If a Pokémon with Turboblaze forces a Pokémon to switch in with a move like Roar or Dragon Tail, Abilities that affect entry hazards will be ignored if possible; if forced to switch in this way:

From Generation VI onward, a Pokémon with Overcoat will be affected by powder and spore moves as well.

When a Pokémon with Turboblaze is brought out, the message "<name> is radiating a blazing aura!" will be displayed.

Turboblaze ignores the following Abilities, even in situations where the Ability could increase the power of a move (such as using Low Kick on a Pokemon with Heavy Metal or using a Fire-type move on a Pokémon with Dry Skin):
