Photon Geyser (Japanese: フォトンゲイザー Photon Geyser) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. It is one of the signature moves of Necrozma. It can be upgraded to the special Z-Move Light That Burns the Sky by Ultra Necrozma, via Ultranecrozium Z.


151Mew.png This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Are stat increases taken into account for choosing if it's a physical or special attack?
Is it affected by Reflect/Light Screen and Counter/Mirror Coat depending on which stat is used?
What happens if the user is burned?

You can discuss this on the talk page.

Photon Geyser compares the user's Attack and Special Attack stats, dealing damage to the target using the higher stat. If the user's Attack is greater than its Special Attack, this move's damage will be calculated with the user's Attack and the target's Defense; if its Special Attack is equal to or greater than its Attack, the damage will factor in the user's Special Attack and the target's Special Defense. This does not take Pure Power or Huge Power into account. This move also ignores the target's Ability if the Ability changes the effect of the attack on the target. Abilities that affect the user of the attack, like Pressure, are not ignored. Photon Geyser does not ignore the effects of Shadow Shield and Prism Armor.

Other effects

Photon Geyser does not exist in the game data of Pokémon Sun and Moon. As a result, a Pokémon knowing Photon Geyser cannot be traded from Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon to Sun and Moon, and if a Pokémon in Pokémon Bank knows the move it cannot be withdrawn in Pokémon Sun and Moon. In order to be transferred to Pokémon Sun and Moon, the Pokémon must forget Photon Geyser.
