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.


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. This is determined when the move is performed (not when it is selected), so for example the move's category may change mid-turn if the opponent goes first and uses a move like Charm.

If the user has Terastallized, Tera Blast's type becomes the same as their Tera Type, is unaffected by moves and abilities 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.

If the user has Terastallized into the Stellar type, it deals super-effective damage against Terastallized targets and neutral damage against all other targets. Moreover, its base power is 100 instead of 80 and it lowers the user’s Attack and Sp. Atk stats by one stage.
