SolarBeam (Japanese: ソーラービーム SolarBeam) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

SolarBeam does nothing on the turn it is selected, other than state that the user has taken in sunlight. On the following turn, SolarBeam will inflict damage, PP will be deducted from it, and it will count as the last move used. Once SolarBeam is selected, the user will not be able to switch out until it is disrupted or fully executed.

If SolarBeam is not fully executed, PP will not be deducted from it, and it will not count as the last move used. If the target uses Mirror Move during the turn that the user takes in sunlight, Mirror Move will copy the move that the user executed immediately before using SolarBeam (or fail if it can't).

Sleep, freezing, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of SolarBeam.

In Pokémon Stadium, Mirror Move will copy SolarBeam on either of the turns it takes to execute.

Generation II

SolarBeam will not need a turn to charge if used during the effects of the move Sunny Day, and will only deal half of its normal damage if used during the effect of the move Rain Dance or Sandstorm.

Generation III

SolarBeam will not need a turn to charge if used during the effects of the move Sunny Day and will only do half its normal damage if used during the effect of the move Rain Dance, Sandstorm, or Hail.

Generation IV

The held item Power Herb can allow its holder to charge and fire a SolarBeam in one turn. The Power Herb is consumed in the process. Otherwise, SolarBeam functions the same as Generation III.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Ivysaur uses SolarBeam as part of Pokémon Trainer's Final Smash; Triple Finish.

In the anime

Pokémon

Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur gathers light in its bulb, then fires it.

Meganium. Meganium's neck flower glows white, then it fires the SolarBeam.

Delcatty. Its tail's tip glows white, then it fires the beam of light.

Solrock. Solarbeam is created in its top rock, which turns white as it gathers solar energy. It fires the beam from a ball of light in front of the rock.

Munchlax. Munchlax gathers sunlight in its mouth, then fires the beam to the target.

Vileplume. A white beam is fired from the hole in Vileplume's flower on its head.

Venusaur. The inside of the flower on Venusaur's back glow white, then Venusaur fires the beam from it.

Sceptile: The seeds on Sceptile's back glow white, then Sceptile fires the beam from its mouth.

Budew. Budew opens up the tops of its bud and then white ball of light is created between them. It then fires the attack.

Roselia. Roselia sticks its hands up and the flowers on them collect energy. It then puts the flowers together and fires the attack.

Beautifly. Beautifly's wings glow white. It then propels its wings forward and releases the attack.
