Blue Flare/Flash Fire problem?

#1samus_fan_um_usPosted 4/23/2014 6:43:56 PM
So I was just doing a random battle spot battle, and I get matched up with a guy who has Reshiram. I'm using the team i put together for the April Friendly, which has a Chandelure on it. Unsurprisingly, in the middle of the fight, Reshiram and Chandelure are facing off, and Reshiram uses Blue Flare. Which is a Fire-type move. And did not proc Flash Fire. Chandelure fainted.

What?

I see nothing anywhere that says Blue Flare isn't stopped by Flash Fire, so what just happened? The battle video is public, so if anyone wants to see, it's there, but it happened exactly as I've described it.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any insight as to why that would have happened, and could enlighten me.

Reshiram's Turboblaze is just like Mold Breaker and prevents Flash Fire from working.

Turbo Blaze.

It's a Mold Breaker copy cat. Abilities of the opponent don't stop moves.

Gorramit, I'd forgotten about that. Feeling a bit like an idiot right now.
Although you'd think an ability named TURBOBLAZE would do something a little cooler.

Yeah I think it's stupid that Reshiram and Zekrom just have Mold Breaker copies for abilities.

At least it's better than another legendary with Pressure.

Although it would pretty cool if their abilities specifically countered Flash Fire and Volt Absorb by "overcharging" them and doing bonus damage. That's definitely something that would live up to their names at least a little

To me, it's just like a cooler-sounding name for another ability with the same effect. Like Rayquaza's Air Lock (that does exactly the same as Cloud Nine).
