Flame Body (Japanese: ほのおのからだ Flame Body) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.

Effect

In battle

When a Pokémon with this Ability is hit by a move that makes contact, there is a 30% chance that the attacking Pokémon will become burned.

If a Pokémon with this Ability is hit by a multi-strike move that makes contact (such as Fury Swipes), each hit has an independent chance to activate this Ability.

Outside of battle

From Pokémon Emerald onward, if a Pokémon with Flame Body is in the party (even if fainted), the number of cycles it takes for all Pokémon Eggs in the party to hatch are halved. This effect does not stack with itself, Magma Armor, or Steam Engine; however, it can be stacked with Hatching Power Pass Power, O-Power, or Roto Hatch.

Flame Body activating in Super Mystery Dungeon

When the Pokémon is hit by a move that makes contact, there is a chance that the attacking Pokémon will become burned. In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, Flame Body also causes any items thrown at the Pokémon to become burned, nullifying the effects of the thrown item. Thrown items that miss the Pokémon will not be burned.
