Fusion Bolt (Japanese: クロスサンダー Cross Thunder) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation V. It is the signature move of Zekrom and Black Kyurem.


Fusion Bolt inflicts damage. The base power of Fusion Bolt will double if another Pokémon uses Fusion Flare or Blue Flare immediately before the Pokémon using Fusion Bolt, but only during that use. Likewise, it will double the power of Fusion Flare if Fusion Bolt is used immediately before the Pokémon using Fusion Flare, during that use. When Fusion Flare or Blue Flare is used before this move is used, or a critical hit is made, this move's animation display changes.


Games Description
The user throws down a giant thunderbolt. This attack does greater damage when influenced by an enormous flame.

Pokémon Method
User First Used In Notes
644 Zekrom The electric generator inside Zekrom's tail starts to spin and glow light blue with electricity. Zekrom's body then becomes surrounded in light blue electricity and large bolts of light blue electricity burst off its body. A violet forcefield then forms around Zekrom's body and it flies down and slams its body into the opponent. When the attack is complete, the generator in Zekrom's tail glows light blue for a tiny bit and it becomes surrounded in light blue sparks temporarily.

  • Fusion Bolt is the last move in index number order of Generation V.
  • During a cutscene in Black Version 2, N's Zekrom uses Fusion Bolt to shatter Kyurem's Glaciate from a distance. In-battle, Fusion Bolt is a physical move; the battle animation shows Zekrom/Black Kyurem forming the attack around their body. However, it should be noted that the attack does not make contact, unlike most physical moves.
