Tera Blast (move)
テラバースト Tera Burst
Tera Blast (Japanese: テラバースト Tera Burst) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation IX. It is TM171 in Generation IX.
|This move effect may be in need of research. |
Reason: Does the move's category actually change, or only the stat used for damage calculation? Under what circumstances does this happen? For what purposes other than Gale Wings is Tera Blast considered Normal-type?
You can discuss this on the talk page.
Tera Blast deals damage. If the user's Attack stat is higher than its Special Attack stat, Tera Blast becomes a physical move when Terastallized; otherwise, it remains a special move. For determining which stat is higher, stat stage-modifiers are taken into account, but other effects (e.g. held items such as a Choice Band, Abilities such as Huge Power, etc.) are not.
If the user has Terastallized, Tera Blast's type becomes the same as their Tera Type, is unaffected by moves and abilites that change its type, and has a different animation depending on the move's type. Tera Blast is always considered Normal-type for the purpose of Gale Wings.

As other types
- Tera Blast is the first Generation IX move in index number order.
- The TM for Tera Blast is incompatible with only two Pokémon, the fewest of any TM, TR, or HM in any generation.
- Tera Blast hints at Glimmet and Glimmora's implied connection to the Terastal phenomenon, as eight Glimmet Crystals are needed to make the TM.
