In addition, if it is used against a Pokemon that is originally a Fire type, you can use it because it can use its ability Flash Fire to disable Fire moves.
Likely To Be Useful For 7★ Cinderace Raid
Ceruledge is likely to be useful in the ★7 Cinderace Raid battle for the coming up limited-time event. It can continue to attack while recovering with Bitter Blade while disabling both the opponent's main Fire and Fighting moves.Cinderace Tera Raid Event
