Blaze
Ability 1
Blaze increases the power of Fire-type moves by 50% (1.5x) when the ability-bearer's HP falls below a third of its maximum (known in-game as in a pinch).
Flash Fire
Hidden Ability
When a Pokémon with Flash Fire is hit by a Fire-type move, it does not deal damage but instead raises the power of the bearer's Fire-type moves by 50%. Subsequent hits do not raise the power even more, but the effect remains while the ability-bearer is in battle.
