Will Psycho Shift + Flame Orb activate Flash Fire??

0 votes

I've seen this before in double battles where the teammate hits the other with a Fire-Type move such as Will O' Wisp or Flamethrower to activate Flash Fire.

Now take a Cresselia that know Psycho Shift and is holding a Flame Orb and a Chandelure with Flash Fire. Cresselia used Psycho Shift on Chandelure. Will Flash Fire activate??

No, it will not.

Burn does not activate Flash Fire. Tri-Attack, Flame Body, and flame orb, and being the victim of Synchronize/Psycho Shift)can cause burns while not being fire moves should the Pokemon with Flash Fire not be a Fire Type. -Bulbepedia
