Tachyon Cutter (Japanese: タキオンカッター Tachyon Cutter) is a damage-dealing Steel-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Iron Crown.


Tachyon Cutter inflicts damage, hitting twice per use. It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

If used by a Pokémon with Sharpness, its power is increased by 50%.


Games Description
SV The user attacks by launching particle blades at the target twice in a row. This attack never misses.
