Torch Song (Japanese: フレアソング Flare Song) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Skeledirge.


Torch Song inflicts damage and raises the user's Special Attack by one stage. Pokémon with the Ability Soundproof are immune to this move.

If the user is affected by Throat Chop, it will be unable to use this move for two turns.

Torch Song will have its power boosted by 30% when used by a Pokémon with the Ability Punk Rock. The damage dealt by Torch Song will also be halved when used against a Pokémon with Punk Rock.

If the user is holding a Throat Spray, the item will be consumed and the user's Special Attack stat will raise by one stage.


Games Description
SV The user blows out raging flames as if singing a song, scorching the target. This also boosts the user's Sp. Atk stat.
