From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Behemoth Bash (Japanese: きょじゅうだん Behemoth Impact) is a damage-dealing Steel-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the signature move of Zamazenta.
Behemoth Bash deals damage. If the target is Dynamaxed or Gigantamaxed, its base power is doubled to 200. The bonus does not apply to Eternamax Eternatus, despite its similarities to a Gigantamaxed Pokémon.
||The user becomes a gigantic shield and slams into the target. This move deals twice the damage if the target is Dynamaxed.
If Zamazenta knows Iron Head while entering battle in its Crowned Shield form, Iron Head will become Behemoth Bash for the duration of the battle.
In other games
||This move's power increases 50% when the target has a sync buff.

Spin-off series games
- Behemoth Bash and Behemoth Blade are not present in the mobile version of Pokémon HOME's move Pokédex. This is because they would be impossible to register, since the forms of Zamazenta and Zacian that they are the signature moves of can only appear in battles and therefore cannot be deposited into Pokémon HOME. They share this distinction with Glacial Lance and Astral Barrage, which are also the signature moves of forms that cannot be deposited into Pokémon HOME. Notably, Ice Burn and Freeze Shock are present in the move Pokédex (despite also being the signature moves of Pokémon that cannot be deposited) due to the fact that Smeargle can learn them with Sketch.
