Flame Body (Japanese: ほのおのからだ Flame Body) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.

Effect

In battle

When a Pokémon with this Ability is hit by a move that makes contact, there is a 30% chance that the attacking Pokémon will become burned.

If a Pokémon with this Ability is hit by a multi-strike move that makes contact (such as Fury Swipes), each hit has an independent chance to activate this Ability.

Outside of battle

From Pokémon Emerald onward, if a Pokémon with Flame Body is in the party (even if fainted), the number of cycles it takes for all Pokémon Eggs in the party to hatch are halved. This effect does not stack with itself, Magma Armor, or Steam Engine; however, it can be stacked with Hatching Power Pass Power, O-Power, or Roto Hatch.
