Effects

Incinerate deals damage and if the target is holding a Berry, it is burnt and becomes no longer usable.

If Incinerate would be super-effective and the target is holding an Occa Berry, the Berry activates before the move hits so does not get burnt.

Changes

In Generation 5, Incinerate has base power 30.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Firium Z and uses its Z-Power, Incinerate turns into Inferno Overdrive and has base power 120.
