Flash Fire is an ability.


If a Pokémon with the ability is hit with a Fire-type move, Fire-type moves (and later the users Attack stats starting from Gen 4) will be powered up.

This ability makes the user immune to Fire-type damage and when hit by a Fire-type move, Flash Fire will be activated. While subsequent hits by Fire-type moves will not provide a further increase in the damage of Fire-type attacks, it will still not take any damage.

If the user has used a move like Protect before being hit by a fire move, the ability is not activated.

Will-o-Wisp will trigger and not leave a burn if the Pokémon is Fire-type. If Will-o-Wisp hits a non Fire-type it will still trigger the ability, but will leave a burn.

Flash Fire is not active while the user is frozen prior to Generation V.

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, the ability has a 50% chance of forcing you to encounter a wild fire type if any can be found in the vicinity.

It is an exclusive ability to Fire-type Pokémon.
