Flame Burst (Japanese: はじけるほのお Flame Burst) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

Generation V to VII

Flame Burst deals damage to the target, then inflicts damage to up to two Pokémon adjacent to that target equal to 1/16 of their respective maximum HP. Except in Battle Royals, the extra damage is dealt to the up to two Pokémon that are both allied with and adjacent to the target; in Battle Royals, the extra damage is dealt to the other two opposing Pokémon. The extra damage is not inflicted if the target was not affected by Flame Burst (such as due to Flame Burst missing, Flash Fire, or being protected).

The extra damage is effect damage, so it does not interact with Abilities such as Flash Fire or Color Change on the damaged Pokémon, and is not affected by protection moves and Endure, the Focus Sash or Focus Band, Wonder Guard, Substitute, Destiny Bond, or Telepathy. However, due to being effect damage, it is prevented by Magic Guard. This damage cannot miss.

Generation VIII onwards

Flame Burst cannot be selected in a battle.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Flame Burst is Charizard's first move as Charmander. The user attacks with a bursting flame forward, exploding on the first enemy hit, dealing damage and burning enemies in a small radius. The user gains a small movement speed bonus when hitting an enemy. The burn lasts 4s and reduces enemy Attack by 5%. Upon evolving into Charmeleon at level 5, it is replaced by either Flamethrower or Fire Punch.
