Aura Sphere (Japanese: はどうだん Wave Bomb) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

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.

Generation V

Aura Sphere can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles.

Generation VI

Aura Sphere's base power is reduced to 80. Additionally, its power is boosted by 50% if the user has Mega Launcher, and Pokémon with Bulletproof are immune to it.

Pokémon Rumble Blast

The user creates a blue ball that homes in on the nearest Pokémon.
