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