Clangorous Soulblaze (Japanese: ブレイジングソウルビート Blazing Soulbeat) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type Z-Move introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. It is the exclusive Z-Move of Kommo-o and an upgraded version of its signature move, Clanging Scales.


Generation VII

Clangorous Soulblaze inflicts damage to all opposing Pokémon and increases the user's Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed stats by one stage each.

Clangorous Soulblaze is a sound-based move.

Clangorous Soulblaze can hit Pokémon even if they are behind a substitute. The user's move fails if the opponents are in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move, or if the targets are immune to this move; the user's stats are not raised if the move is unable to damage any of the opposing Pokémon.

The stats raised are part of the Z-Move's effect, rather than a Z-Power Effect, and therefore interacts with move-modifying effects such as Simple and Contrary normally.

Generation VIII onwards

Clangororus Soulblaze cannot be selected in a battle.


Games Description
USUM After obtaining Z-Power, the user, Kommo-o, attacks the opposing Pokémon with full force. This move boosts the user's stats.
This move can't be used. It's recommended that this move is forgotten. Once forgotten, this move can't be remembered.


Kommo-o, or a Pokémon transformed into Kommo-o, can use Clangorous Soulblaze if it knows Clanging Scales, holds a Kommonium Z, and if its Trainer wears a Z-Power Ring.

In the anime

The user gathers Z-Power and blasts the opponent with a devastating shockwave.

  • Though Z-Moves have been removed from the core series as of Generation VIII, Kommo-o received a new signature move in this generation, Clangorous Soul; due to having a similar name in all languages, it could be seen as a downgraded version of Clangorous Soulblaze, with the similar effect of increasing the user's stats, but with the drawback of decreasing the user's HP.
