Eternabeam (Japanese: ムゲンダイビーム Infinite Beam) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is one of the signature moves of Eternatus.

Effect

Eternabeam inflicts damage and then forces the user to recharge during the next turn, unless the move fails due to missing, type immunity, or being blocked by a protection move.

  • Eternabeam has the highest base power of all Dragon-type moves, excluding Z-Moves.
  • Eternabeam is the only move that is a regular move in the core series games but is a max move in Pokémon Masters EX.
