Passive Ability

もうか Raging Flames

When the Pokémon uses a move, its next basic attack becomes a boosted attack. When the Pokémon hits an opposing Pokémon with a basic attack or move, a cinder is placed on that opposing Pokémon. Attacking a cindered opposing Pokémon a certain number of times will cause that cinder to flare, dealing damage to the opposing Pokémon. When the Pokémon with this Ability is at half HP or less, its critical-hit rate and basic attack speed are increased for a short time.

Effect: When at half HP or less, critical-hit rate is increased by 10% and basic attack speed is increased by 20% for a short time.
