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


The user shoots a flame at the target that bursts on contact.


In battle

The backlash of the explosion will affect others around, including an ally, by 1/16 their max HP to Pokémon with no resistance to fire. The move will have no effect on Pokémon with Flash Fire.

Contest Spectaculars

Makes the audience expect little of other contestants.
