Ember

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Fire 40 100% 25 0 Special Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a 10% chance to burn the target.

Competitive Use

Ember is a rather useless move competitively: it sits at 40 Base Power, which means there is no reason it use it over Flamethrower or Fire Blast, both of which also have a 10% chance to burn the target and are more powerful. Most, if not all, Pokemon that get Ember also have Flamethrower or Fire Blast.

Related Moves

Flamethrower is a more powerful alternative.

Fire Blast is a less accurate but more powerful alternative.

Lava Plume is a more powerful alternative with a higher change to burn.
