Nintendo Ability: Flare Boost
Back to list
Flare BoostCategories: Affects Status Effects, Raises Stats
A Pokémon with this Ability is composed of flammable substances, and thus bursts into flame when inflicted with the burn status. While the Pokémon is still hurt by the burn and its Attack stat drops, it can use the flames to enhance its special moves, multiplying its Special Attack stat by 50% (*1.5).
This boost is retained for the duration of the battle as long as the bearer is burned, even if they are switched out of battle. The damage multiplier from Flare Boost is lost if the bearer's Ability is changed or if the status condition is cured. This boost is not considered a true stat boost, and thus cannot be Baton Passed to another Pokémon.
Powers up special attacks when burned.
