Aeroblast (Japanese: エアロブラスト Aeroblast) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation II. It is the signature move of Lugia.

Effect

Aeroblast deals damage and has an increased critical hit ratio.

Aeroblast can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles.

Aeroblast can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining extra three appeal points if the move Focus Energy was used in the prior turn.

Generation VIII

In Versions 1.0 to 1.2.1 of Pokémon Sword and Shield, Aeroblast could not be selected in a battle. Starting with Version 1.3.0, it is usable and functions the same as it did in previous generations.

The user releases a beam of energy from its mouth.
Pokémon Method
User First Used In Notes
  A yellow-orange ball of energy forms in front of Lugia's mouth. Lugia's body then starts to glow blue and it fires multiple beams of yellow-orange energy from its mouth, which eventually converge into a single destructive beam, surrounded by a vortex of wind, which is fired at the opponent. Alternatively, Lugia will open its mouth and gather blue energy inside it. It then fires a massive beam of energy from its mouth at the opponent.
