In the Pokemon Sword and Shield on Nintendo Switch, Fire-type Pokemon is impossible to burn. In most cases, players will choose to buy 6IV Shiny Pokemon on PKMBuy. However, Reddit user Zrehtims proved that it is not impossible to get some Fire-type Pokemon with status conditions: in this case, the Eeveelution Flareon!
Zrehtims did this by using a Fire Stone to evolving an Eevee after Eevee was burned down. Evolution did not get rid of state conditions, leaving players with something impossible to achieve in the game. If Flareon has the ability to Guts Hidden, then this kind of burning can prove to be beneficial. A courageous Pokémon will increase its attack power by 50% when they have a status condition, and burning will not reduce its HP!
To obtain a burned Flareon, the opponent's Pokemon must use an attack that burns Eevee, which may take many encounters to make happen. In the final analysis, the burned Flareon may not be worth the effort, but it is not difficult to imagine that some players will try this method for themselves purely based on freshness.
