Sparkling Aria (Japanese: うたかたのアリア Bubble Aria) is a damage-dealing Water-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature move of Primarina. It can be upgraded to the special Z-Move Oceanic Operetta by Primarina holding Primarium Z.


Sparkling Aria inflicts damage to all adjacent Pokémon, including allies. If the target was burned, the burn is healed. Pokémon with the Ability Soundproof, Dry Skin, Storm Drain, or Water Absorb are not affected by this move. Burned Pokémon are not healed of their burns if the move does not affect them.

If the user is affected by Throat Chop, it will be unable to use this move for two turns.

Sparkling Aria will have its power boosted by 30% when used by a Pokémon with the Ability Punk Rock. The damage dealt by Sparkling Aria 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 raise by one stage.


Games Description
The user bursts into song, emitting many bubbles. Any Pokémon suffering from a burn will be healed by the touch of these bubbles.
