The Flame Orb is a held item that afflicts the user with a Burn after one turn of battle.
Also powers up Fire type Pokémon.
The Burn effect of a Flame Orb can be used to activate Abilities that require a Status condition, such as Guts or Marvel Scale, and this would also double the Base Power of Facade to 140 (210 if the Pokémon using Facade is a Normal Type due to a Same Type Attack Boost).
