Abilities Description
Ability 1
Run Away
Run Away allows the bearer to flee a battle with a wild Pokémon without fail, even if the opposing Pokémon has used a move like Mean Look or Bind, or has an ability such as Arena Trap.
Ability 2
Flash Fire
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.
Hidden Ability
Flame Body
If a Pokémon with Flame Body is hit by a move that makes contact, there is a 30% chance the attacker will become burned.
