Blast Burn (Japanese: ブラストバーン Blast Burn) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation III. Only Fire-type fully evolved starter Pokémon can learn this move.
Blast Burn inflicts damage and then forces the user to recharge during the next turn. Unless this attack misses, the user will always have to recharge.
Blast Burn can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra four appeal points if the move Sunny Day was used in the prior turn.

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Blast Burn is a move with 30 base power, 8PP and 84% accuracy. The user targets adjacent enemies, including frozen ones (thawing them out in the process); this move's damage is doubled at the end of calculation. If the move hits at least one target successfully, the user is inflicted with Paused status condition for 1-2 turns, preventing them from acting on these turns. This move is affected by Muzzled status condition.
In Explorers of Time and Darkness and Explorers of Sky, the move's PP is decreased to 6.
Since Blast Burn is exclusively a tutor move in main series, it is taught differently in Mystery Dungeon:
- In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Charizard will attempt to learn Blast Burn at level 99 if it has at least 333 IQ points. If this requirement is not met until after reaching level 99, Blast Burn can be relearned at the Gulpin Link Shop.
- In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, an eligible Pokémon will attempt to learn Blast Burn at level 72 if it has at least 300 IQ points. If this requirement is not met until after level 72, Blast Burn can be relearned at Electivire Link Shop.
- In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, Tepig can be taught Blast Burn via special TM available once Pokémon Paradise reaches Perfect Rank.
- In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, the move can be taught at Hawlucha's Slam School by paying 11,000
- In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, the move can be taught at Gulpin Link Shop after completing the main story.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, Blast Burn is a custom variant of Charizard's Flare Blitz. When used, Charizard will briefly charge up before rushing at the opponent. When the move makes contact, it creates an explosion that sends the opponent flying, and Charizard takes recoil damage. Compared to Flare Blitz, Blast Burn is much more powerful, but the recoil damage is higher and the move travels slowly for a short distance.
In Pokémon GO, Blast Burn is a Charged Attack that has been available since May 19, 2018.
