Hyper Beam (Japanese: はかいこうせん Destruction Beam) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation I. It is TM15 in every generation so far.

It can be learned via TM by many fully evolved Pokémon that can learn TMs, including Pokémon that were fully evolved at one point but later received one or more evolved forms, such as Porygon or Seadra.

Effect

Generation I

Hyper Beam inflicts damage. A recharge turn is required on the turn after damage is done, during which no action may be performed.

Hyper Beam will not require a recharge turn if it misses, breaks a substitute, defeats the target, or if the user is targeted by a partially trapping move (even if it misses), flinches, or is put to sleep after the attack but before the recharge turn. However, freeze does not negate the recharge turn of Hyper Beam. If the user is confused, the recharge turn of Hyper Beam will not count towards the number of turns the user will remain confused.

If one Pokémon attacks first with a partial trapping move that misses in a round in which the other Pokémon must recharge from a use of Hyper Beam, the user of Hyper Beam will automatically use Hyper Beam again during that turn instead of recharging. If at such a time Hyper Beam has 0 PP, Hyper Beam will still be used, and afterward its PP will roll over to 63, and full PP Ups will be applied to it.

In Pokémon Stadium, Hyper Beam requires a recharge turn every time it is used.

Generation II

Hyper Beam will always need to recharge if it hits, even if the target is knocked out, unless the battle is completed in that turn. The partial-trapping glitch is fixed in this generation.

Generation III and on

If the user has Truant, the recharge and "loafing around" take place on the same turn.
