Intense sunlight (Japanese: 日差しが強い intense sunlight) is a type of weather introduced in battle in Generation II. It was introduced in the overworld in Generation III.

It will last for five turns if created using Drought (Generation VI only) or Sunny Day, or eight if created while holding a Heat Rock. If created using Drought (prior to Generation VI) or encountered in the overworld, it will last until replaced.

There is also a variation of intense sunlight called extremely harsh sunlight (Japanese: 日差しがとても強い very intense sunlight). Extremely harsh sunlight can be encountered in the overworld or created using Desolate Land; if the latter, it lasts until the summoner is removed from the field (and no other Pokémon with Desolate Land remain on the field), the summoner is rotated out in a Rotation Battle, the summoner has Desolate Land suppressed or replaced, or heavy rain or strong winds are created by Primordial Sea or Delta Stream respectively.
