Ever since I started playing RBY, I have been amused by Fire Blast and its 30% burn chance. Effectively, it is sort of the Scald of RBY, except it has higher power and arguably a better distribution as most Pokemon can learn it. For the record, this is more about non-fire types using Fire Blast, because obviously they are going to run it. Of course Fire Blast has its issues, mainly: -unfreezing opposing frozen Pokemon -a bit inaccurate -low PP -some Pokemon want to burn burned I was bored, so I broke down the OU Pokemon by their willingness to be burned: Would prefer to be burned: -Alakazam -Chansey -Starmie Hate being burned: -Dragonite -FishLax -Golem -Persian -Rhydon -Tauros Do not enjoy being burned: -Cloyster -Exeggutor -Gengar -Lapras Do not mind being burned: -AmnesiaLax -Jynx (good luck on taking a fire blast though) -Slowbro -Zapdos Overall though, what are your thoughts on Fire Blast in RBY? Is it something worth considering, or does its flaws generally make it not worth while?
