Flame Eater
Flavor text
Restores HP if hit by a Fire-type move.

Flame Eater is an original Ability introduced in Pokémon Solar Light and Lunar Dark. It is the signature Ability of Gaslit.


In battle

When a Pokémon with Flame Eater is hit by a Fire-type move, its HP is restored by one quarter of its maximum HP, and the move will have no effect on that Pokémon (if a Pokémon with this Ability already has full HP, the Fire-type move will do nothing instead).

Flame Eater will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Fire-type move.

Outside of battle

Flame Eater has no effect outside of battle.

Although Flare Boost seems like an oddball Ability to the list below, it does have to do with interaction with Fire-type Moves; specifically, if they Burn the Pokemon with the Ability.
