Blaze (Japanese: もうか Hepburn: Raging Flames) is an ability introduced in Generation III. It is an exclusive ability to Fire-type Pokémon, mostly Starters, with the exception of Pansear and its evolution.

It is the most seen ability out if the 3 base starter abilities in the anime, with 4 Pokémon from 3 evolutionary line using it. Theses are May's Blaziken (anime) (only as Blaziken), Ash's Infernape in all 3 evolutionary stages (and became notorious for activating it), and both Ash's and Professor Kukui's Incineroar (though the former did so as Torracat, its pre-evolution, when battling the latter).


In battle

The damage of Fire-type moves are increased by 1.5x its original damage when the user's HP is 30% or lower.
