If you're frozen and you use scald, your Pokemon thaws out. But if you use scald against a frozen Pokemon, it doesn't thaw? And if you're frozen and try to use lava plume, you DON'T thaw either?

I was on showdown when this happened. So maybe this was just a glitch. I mean, simulators can't be perfect, right? But I'm gonna look around and see if it works the same way in game. Because that doesn't make any sense.

I thought it was if your frozen, you using any fire moves immediately thaws you out

The rest is just a 20% to thaw out each time

Taken from Bulbapedia:

Generation V

Scald inflicts damage and has a 30% chance of causing a burn. Upon execution, Scald will thaw the user if frozen, regardless of the success of the move. This means that Scald thaws the user even if the move misses or is rendered useless by Detect, Protect, Storm Drain, or Water Absorb.

Generation VI

Scald now thaws a frozen target, if it hits.


Probably just your sim not having updated it yet. Using Lava Plume has never broken your own freeze though.

A frozen Pokémon can still use the moves Flame Wheel, Sacred Fire, Flare Blitz, Fusion Flare, and Scald while frozen; these moves will thaw the user, then execute normally
You will never know me... You are lost...and scared.

Alright, thanks. I guess Showdown needs an update then.

I wonder why lava plume doesn't thaw the user though. I mean, just look at the move description. >_> "An inferno of flame scorches everything around the user."

Are all the thawing moves physical? If so that's kind of odd.
I count triple because I'm the False Spring Queen!
So you ARE outnumbered, cakesniffers.
