Works better the later it is used in a turn.

Fusion Bolt (Japanese: クロスサンダー Cross Thunder) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation V. It is one of the signature moves of Zekrom and Black Kyurem.


Fusion Bolt inflicts damage. The base power of Fusion Bolt will double if any Pokémon has successfully used Fusion Flare previously in the same turn, with no intervening moves in between, except perhaps for failed moves. If this power increase applies, it also causes Fusion Bolt to have a different animation than normal. Likewise, Fusion Bolt will cause a later Fusion Flare to have doubled power if it's the next successful move used in the same turn.

If a single Pokémon manages to use both fusion moves consecutively in the same turn (via Instruct), the second one will still receive the power increase.

Fusion Bolt can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if the move Charge was used in the prior turn.
