Burn Up (Japanese: もえつきる Burn Out) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation VII.

Effect

If used by a Fire-type Pokémon, Burn Up will thaw out the user if it is frozen, and then inflict damage to the target and cause the user to lose its Fire type. Burn Up fails if the user is not Fire-type, making the move always fail after the first use until the Pokémon regains its Fire type (either by switching out, or other type changing effects such as through Protean or Reflect Type); Burn Up cannot thaw the user if the move would fail (due to the user not being Fire-type).

If the user is a pure Fire-type Pokémon, it will become typeless.

Like all type changing effects, the Pokémon's type reverts to its default types if it is switched out.

A Pokémon with Protean or Libero cannot successfully use Burn Up unless it already is Fire-type; otherwise, Burn Up will fail and Protean or Libero will not activate.

A Pokémon that has Terastallized (and has a Fire Tera type) will not lose its Fire typing. Therefore, a Terastallized Burn Up can be used multiple times in a row without needing to switch out.

Generation IX

As no available Pokémon can learn Burn Up, it can only be used through Metronome.

  The flames on Moltres's wings, crest, and tail grow larger and glow bright yellow and orange. Moltres then flaps its wings, releasing a massive wave of fire from them at the opponent. After using the move, Moltres loses its Fire type and the flames on its body burn shorter and duller.
