A very appealing move, but after using this move, the user is more easily startled.

Light of Ruin (Japanese: はめつのひかり Light of Ruin) is a damage-dealing Fairy-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature move of the Eternal Flower Floette, which has never been released.


Light of Ruin inflicts damage, and the user receives recoil damage equal to ½ of the damage done to the target.


Games Description
Drawing power from the Eternal Flower, the user fires a powerful beam of light. This also damages the user quite a lot.
