G-Max Resonance (Japanese: キョダイセンリツ Kyodai Melody) is a damage-dealing Ice-type G-Max Move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the exclusive G-Max Move of Gigantamax Lapras.


G-Max Resonance inflicts damage and sets up Aurora Veil, reducing damage for five turns. Unlike regular Aurora Veil, hail doesn't need to be active in order for the Aurora Veil to be set up by this move. The duration of the Aurora Veil effect is extended from 5 to 8 turns if a Light Clay is held.

Its power and whether it is a special or physical move depends on the move it is based on.
