Solar Beam (Japanese: ソーラービーム Solar Beam), formatted as SolarBeam prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a damage-dealing Grass-type move introduced in Generation I. It is TM22 in every generation so far.

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.

If the user is prevented from attacking with SolarBeam during the Sunny Day combo by conditions such as flinching, paralysis, and confusion, then PP will still be deducted regardless, due to the fact that SolarBeam was designed as a two-turn attack.

If SolarBeam is disrupted from succeeding due to conditions such as flinching, paralysis, or confusion, the entire move will now be cancelled rather than simply paused.

Generation III

SolarBeam will only do half its normal damage if used during the effect of the move Hail. In addition, the move can now be executed within one turn under the effect of the Ability Drought.

Generation IV

The held item Power Herb can allow its holder to charge and fire a SolarBeam in one turn. The Power Herb is then consumed in the process. Also, the message now states the user absorbed the sunlight.

Generation V and on

A minor change in Generation V shows the charging half of Solar Beam's animation happening even if it is sunny, where previously it did not. The actual attack will happen immediately after.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

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