Solar Blade (Japanese: ソーラーブレード Solar Blade) is a damage-dealing Grass-type move introduced in Generation VII. Prior to Generation VIII, it was the signature move of Lurantis. It was TM12 in Pokémon Sword and Shield, and is TM190 in Generation IX.

Effect

Solar Blade charges up sunlight on the first turn and then unleashes the power as an attack on the second.

Solar Blade will not need a turn to charge if used during harsh sunlight. It will have its power halved if used during rain, hail, or sandstorm.

If a Pokémon holding a Power Herb uses Solar Blade, it will consume the Power Herb to execute Solar Blade in one turn. If there is harsh sunlight, the Power Herb will not be consumed.

Generation VIII

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Solar Blade cannot be selected in a battle.

  Lurantis absorbs sunlight into itself and forms a large yellow ball of light above its head. Lurantis then raises one of its hands and turns the ball into a giant blade of yellow light. Lurantis then slams the blade down onto the opponent. If there is harsh sunlight, the blade will immediately finish charging.

Trivia

  • Solar Blade is the only move with a base power of 125.
  • Solar Blade can be considered as the physical version of Solar Beam for having identical mechanics of being a two-turn attack as well as negating its charging turn under harsh sunlight.
