Terrain Pulse (Japanese: だいちのはどう Terrain Pulse) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation VIII.


  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Affected by Ion Deluge/Electrify?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Terrain Pulse deals damage. When there is no terrain active, Terrain Pulse is a Normal-type move. If the user is grounded under any type of terrain, Terrain Pulse's power doubles to 100 (type power-ups from the terrain will be put into effect in addition to this boost).

Terrain Pulse's type and animation changes depending on the terrain at the time it is used.

Terrain Pulse's power is increased by 50% when used by Pokémon with the Ability Mega Launcher.

Terrain Pulse is unaffected by Normalize, Pixilate, Refrigerate, and Galvanize.

When used as a Max Move, Terrain Pulse will be displayed as Max Strike, but will change into the appropriately typed Max Move upon execution, depending on the present terrain and whether or not the user is grounded when the move is actually executed.
