The user cloaks itself in fire and charges at the target. This also damages the user quite a lot. This may leave the target with a burn.

Effect

In battle

Flare Blitz does damage and has a 10% chance to burn the target. Flare Blitz will cause the user to receive recoil damage that is equal to 1/3 the damage dealt to the target. In a Double Battle, Flare Blitz can target any Pokémon around the user. In a Triple Battle, Flare Blitz can only target a Pokémon that's adjacent to the user. If the user is frozen, Flare Blitz will thaw the user out, then inflict the damage on the user.
