Beak Blast (Japanese: くちばしキャノン Beak Cannon) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature move of Toucannon.


Beak Blast is a decreased priority move. The user charges up at the beginning of the turn and executes Beak Blast at -3 priority. All who make contact with the user during the charging phase are burned.

Its charging message is displayed before any other moves.

The charging phase occurs whether or not the user's status would prevent it from executing Beak Blast. For example, if the user is confused, the confusion check is performed before the strike, not the initial charge.

Pokémon with Bulletproof are immune to Beak Blast, but are not immune to the burn.


Games Description
The user first heats up its beak, and then it attacks the target. Making direct contact with the Pokémon while it's heating up its beak results in a burn.
