Clanging Scales (move)
スケイルノイズ Scale Noise
Clanging Scales (Japanese: スケイルノイズ Scale Noise) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is one of the signature moves of Kommo-o. It can be upgraded to the special Z-Move Clangorous Soulblaze by Kommo-o holding Kommonium Z in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
Clanging Scales will have its power boosted by 30% when used by a Pokémon with the Ability Punk Rock. The damage dealt by Clanging Scales 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 be raised by one stage.
