Flash Fire and Substitute...

0 votes

Let's say i do Substitute with my Chandelure which has Flash Fire and that annoying Heatran does a huge Fire Blast on me, does my ability (Flash Fire) work or it just cancels itself?

Flash Fire does take effect even if you have a Substitute up, boosting it's Fire Type Moves..

It will work, Heatran wouldn't do damage to your substitute anyway. Also, Heatrqan probably wouldn't use fire blast knowing that its a 1/3 chance that it will be countered with flash fire and its also NVE

Source: Lanturn with Volt Absorb in a sub is same as Flash Fire. (I've been in this situation before)

**hope this helps! :D

Pokémon with Flash Fire, Motor Drive, Volt Absorb and Water Absorb will still activate when targeted by the corresponding type of attack (this includes Thunder Wave and Will-O-Wisp) if they are behind a Substitute. - from that neoseeker site
