Fusion Bolt (Japanese: クロスサンダー Cross Thunder) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation V. It is one of the signature moves of Zekrom and Black Kyurem.



Fusion Bolt inflicts damage. The base power of Fusion Bolt will double if another Pokémon uses Fusion Flare or Blue Flare immediately before the Pokémon using Fusion Bolt, but only during that use. Likewise, it will double the power of Fusion Flare if Fusion Bolt is used immediately before the Pokémon using Fusion Flare, during that use. When Fusion Flare or Blue Flare is used before this move is used, or a critical hit is made, this move's animation display changes.


Games Description
BWB2W2 The user throws down a giant thunderbolt. This attack does greater damage when influenced by an enormous flame.

  • Fusion Bolt is the last move in index number order of Generation V.
  • During a cutscene in Black 2, N's Zekrom uses Fusion Bolt to shatter Kyurem's Glaciate from a distance. In-battle, Fusion Bolt is a physical move; the battle animation shows Zekrom/Black Kyurem forming the attack around their body. However, it should be noted that the attack does not make contact, unlike most physical moves.
