a renewable fuel source? some other moves are stronger but they don't make them type change...
Pokemon produce fire from the fuel they create themselves, and seeing the present effects of Burn Up it’s safe to assume that it’s non-renewable (and Torkoal's smoke pretty much confirms that).

It’s just a gimmicky move not mean to be used over and over again, like Present and Hold Hands.

same sould be used better in my opinion bc burning something up has a different meaning too.

The move description disagrees with you
To inflict massive damage, the user burns itself out. After using this move, the user will no longer be Fire type.
Burns itself out=completely uses its fire capacity

On a side note, Burn Up should have really high BP for a Pokemon to justify losing its STAB for the battle and being able to use the nice only once. Around 150?

Or change dex description and effect in my opinion.

Mist Ball and Luster Purge should have their Base Power increased to 90. The 50% chance to lower Special Attack or Special Defense is nice but not consistent enough to make it worth using over Psychic's higher power or Psyshock's defense calculation. I kinda forget the fact that they even exist.

Scald is ridiculously overpowered, reduce the burn chance to at most 10%. There should not be this move that instantly prevents half of all Pokémon from ever wanting to switch into you.
