It varies quite a lot, but in most cases it is 10%. For example, Flamethrower "may cause a burn" - the chance is 10%. Having said that, flinching moves appear to mostly be 20%.

Just check our movedex to see exactly what chance it is. Or view all moves and order the far right column to see the percentages.
