Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Mystical Fire is Sylveon's, Delphox's and Chandelure's first move.

Sylveon obtains this move after evolving from Eevee at level 4, and upgrading Swift into it instead of Hyper Voice. The user creates four small flames while leaping in the designated direction. The flames shoot toward enemies one by one, dealing damage and decreasing their Sp. Attack by 15% for 1s, stacking up to 4 times. Each time a flame hits, it reduces the cooldown of this move and after the first flame hits, subsequent flames on the same target deal 25% damage. At level 10, a fifth flame is added to the move.

Delphox obtains this move by evolving from Braixen at level 6, and upgrading Ember into it instead of Fire Blast. It unleashes a special, hot ball of fire in a forward direction, which explodes if it hits an enemy, dealing damage to all targets in the area-of-effect. At level 11, the move reduces the cooldown of all moves by 1s if it hits a target, reducing a further 1.5s if it hits an enemy from the opposing team.
