Heatran is listed as a pure fire type in the TM listing, I would change it, but I don't know how. --[[User:Improv]] 12:43, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

I got it. Thanks for the heads up. =] SL-samacontribs 12:44, 14 March 2009 (UTC)


Why was the part of "and the only non-Fire-type Pokemon to learn Will-o-wisp" in the trivia removed? That had to stay and it was true. - unsigned comment from Makupe (talkcontribs)

Ghost Type

In my LeafGreen Will-O-Wisp is considered a Ghost-type move. I assume that this means that it was considered Ghost-type in Generation III. I was curious as to whether or not there was a reason that this was not in the Trivia section. If it should be, should I add it or will someone else. I ask because I am new. - unsigned comment from WingZeroAlchemist (talkcontribs)

Will-O-Wisp has never been a Ghost-type move. Some people seem to think it is because it is commonly learned by Ghost-type Pokémon, but the moves summary screen shows it as a Fire-type move. Werdnae (talk) 00:44, 9 August 2010 (UTC)


Just a nitpick on the translation of the move's Japanese name. I happen to know that onibi doesn't mean "Will-O-Wisp"; it actually translates to "devil fire". I have to wonder why "Will-O-Wisp" is there. SharKing Productions 23:13, 9 February 2011 (UTC)


Apparently Paul's Magmar/Magmortar used Will-o-Wisp, but it's not mentioned on this page. Could somebody fix that?

Magmar was never seen using the move. Since it wasn't seen, it can't be added. Also, don't forget to sign your posts by typing ing the four ~. Littlmiget123 00:54, 22 September 2011 (UTC)


I just had a Sableye with Prankster use Will-O-Wisp on an Absol with Justified... and it had no affect. Absol is not a Fire-type, and was not holding any items that can weaken or immunize Will-O-Wisp, so I do not know how this was possible. UxieLover1994 (talk) 08:22, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

See Prankster (Ability). In Generation VII, Dark-type Pokémon are immune to moves that have their priority boosted by Prankster. --SnorlaxMonster 08:29, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
