From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom (Japanese: ムーンライトブラスター Moonlight Blaster) is a damage-dealing Ghost-type Z-Move introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. It is the exclusive Z-Move of Lunala and Dawn Wings Necrozma and an upgraded version of their signature move, Moongeist Beam.
- Main article: Ignoring Abilities
Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom inflicts damage, ignoring all ignorable Abilities during the execution of that move. (Ignorable Abilities are most Abilities that could potentially negatively affect the success, damage, or effects of a move if possessed by the target of a move or its allies—such as Multiscale and Friend Guard.)
Generation VIII onwards
Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom cannot be selected in a battle.
|After obtaining Z-Power, the user, Lunala, attacks the target with full force. This move can ignore the effect of the target's Ability.
|This move can't be used. It's recommended that this move is forgotten. Once forgotten, this move can't be remembered.
Lunala or Dawn Wings Necrozma, or a Pokémon transformed into either, can use Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom if it knows Moongeist Beam, holds a Lunalium Z, and if its Trainer wears a Z-Power Ring.
In the anime
|The user's Trainer turns the Lunalium Z in their Z-Power Ring and strikes a pose on top of the user. It then emits six sinister rays to attack the target.
|First Used In
|Lunala's Trainer turns the Lunalium Z in their Z-Power Ring clockwise and strikes a series of synchronized poses with Lunala to build Z-Power. It then flies into the air and enters its Full Moon phase before firing six blue beams of energy from around its body at the opponent.
