Boomburst (Japanese: ばくおんぱ Sound Wave Explosion) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation VI.

Effect

Boomburst does damage to all adjacent Pokémon, including allies. Pokémon with the Ability Soundproof are not affected by this move.

Boomburst will become a Water-type move when used by a Pokémon with the ability Liquid Voice. If the user is affected by Throat Chop, it will be unable to use this move for two turns.

Boomburst will have its power boosted by 30% when used by a Pokémon with the ability Punk Rock. The damage dealt by Boomburst will also be halved when used against a Pokémon with Punk Rock. If the user is holding a Throat Spray, the item will be consumed and the user's Special Attack stat will raise by one stage.
