Twin Beam (Japanese: ツインビーム Twin Beam) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Girafarig and Farigiraf.


Twin Beam inflicts damage, hitting twice per use. Each strike has an equal chance to be a critical hit.

Twin Beam will hit again if the first strike breaks a substitute. Mirror Coat will only acknowledge the second strike of this move.

If a Focus Sash activates before the last strike is dealt, the following strike will cause the defending Pokémon to faint. A Focus Band can still activate repeatedly to prevent fainting, but each chance is independent. Sturdy will activate with each hit if the defending Pokémon has a maximum HP of 1.

If the user is holding a King's Rock or Razor Fang, each consecutive hit has an equal chance to cause the opponent to flinch.

If the target has Stamina, each strike will activate it.

Other effects

A Girafarig that knows Twin Beam evolves into Farigiraf when leveled up.
