Eternabeam (Japanese: ムゲンダイビーム Infinite Beam) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is one of the signature moves of Eternatus.


Pokémon Sword and Shield

Eternabeam inflicts damage and then forces the user to recharge during the next turn, unless the move fails due to missing, type immunity, or being blocked by a protection move.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Eternabeam cannot be selected in a battle.
