Electro Shot (Japanese: エレクトロビーム Electro Beam) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Archaludon.


On the turn it is selected, Electro Shot will raise the user's Special Attack stat by one stage, and the message "[User] absorbed electricity!" will be shown. On the following turn, Electro Shot will do damage (factoring in the Special Attack boost), PP will be deducted from it, and it will count as the last move used. Once Electro Shot is selected, the user won't be able to switch out until it is disrupted or fully executed. Electro Shot will not need a turn to charge if used during rain.

Sleep, freezing, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Electro Shot.

If a Power Herb is held by the user, Electro Shot can be executed in one turn.

Electro Shot's damage is boosted by Sheer Force despite not suppressing any additional effects.[1]


Games Description
SV The user gathers electricity on the first turn, boosting its Sp. Atk stat, then fires a high-voltage shot on the next turn. The shot will be fired immediately in rain.
