The user covers the ground under everyone’s feet with lava for five turns. The Pokemon on the ground are burned.
Volcanic Terrain creates terrain that envelops the field and replaces the background environment and any other terrain that is already in effect. The terrain fades after five turns. This terrain has the following effects on Pokémon that are on the ground and not in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move:
- Causes all Pokemon to be burned. Volcanic Terrain will not affect a target with the Abilities Water Veil, or a Fire-Type Pokemon.
- It halves the damage taken from Water type moves by affected Pokémon (regardless of whether the user of the move is affected).
If Volcanic Terrain is in effect, Nature Power becomes Flamethrower, Secret Power uses the animation of Ember and may inflict a burn, and Camouflage causes the user to become Fire-type. Natural objects disappear and cannot be destroyed while Volcanic Terrain is in effect.
