Aura Sphere (Japanese: はどうだん Wave Bomb) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation IV.
Aura Sphere inflicts damage and is unaffected by modifications to the accuracy stat and evasion stat. It will not hit a Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turn of moves such as Dig, Dive, and Fly.
Aura Sphere can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles.
