SonicBoom (Japanese: ソニックブーム Sonic Boom) is a slightly inaccurate Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I that deals a fixed amount of damage.


Unless it misses, SonicBoom will always do 20 points of Normal damage to the opponent. Its type will not alter the amount of damage it inflicts, except against Template:Type2s, who are immune. In Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, this move does 55 damage instead of 20 damage.

In the anime


Buizel. Buizel's tail glows white and Buizel does a flip. After it flips, a massive shockwave is sent flying at the opponent.

Yanmega. Yanmega's wings glow white, then flaps its wings and a shockwave is sent flying at the opponent.

Yanma. Same as above.
