A burn can be inflicted by most fire type moves and will hurt the Pokemon inflicted with it by 1/16th of their max HP every turn. It will also lower Attack by 50% (Pokemon with Guts Attack will raise by 50% when affected with this status infliction) and can be healed by a medicines such as Burn Heal, by feeding the inflicted Pokemon berries like Rawst Berry or by healing it at a Pokemon Center.
It will not hurt the Pokemon out of battle.
