Flamethrower

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority
Fire 95 100% 15 0

Description

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

Competitive Use

Great Base Power and perfect accuracy. This move would be great if Fire Blast didn't boast a 30% burn chance in trade for 15% accuracy and Fire-types were slightly better in RBY; but that's not the case, so Flamethrower is not seen much. Its main use is when you can't rely on Fire Blast's accuracy.

Related Moves

Fire Blast is a stronger alternative with 120 Base Power, 85% accuracy, and a 30% burn chance.
