Techno Blast (Japanese: テクノバスター Techno Buster) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation V. It is the signature move of Genesect.

Contents

Effect

Generation V

Techno Blast inflicts damage and has no secondary effect. The type of Techno Blast depends on the type of Drive held by the user, being Normal-type if there is none held, and Electric, Fire, Ice, or Water with the appropriate Drive.

Generation VI onwards

Techno Blast's power changed from 85 to 120. If Genesect Dynamaxes, the move is displayed as Max Strike, but becomes the Max Move of whichever type of Drive it is holding when used.
