Will-O-Wisp

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Fire - 75% 15 0 - Single non-user

Description

Burns the target. Pokemon protected by Magic Coat or the ability Magic Bounce are unaffected and instead redirect this move back to the user.

Competitive Use

Will-O-Wisp is a great move for any support Pokemon that has it. It also has a wide distribution and it's not hard to fit a Pokemon with Will-O-Wisp. Will-O-Wisp easily cripples physical attackers bar Fire-types and Guts users or those already statused such as Toxic Orb Breloom. Will-O-Wisp also helps some physically frail users, such as Gallade, sponge physical attacks from burned opponents. As a majority of the Fighting-types are physically oriented, Ghost-types can often switch in easily and burn them with Will-O-Wisp. Will-O-Wisp is useful on any team as burns can quickly disable physical threats while also wearing down burned opponents.
