Moongeist Beam (Japanese: シャドーレイ Shadow Ray) is a damage-dealing Ghost-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature move of Lunala and Dawn Wings Necrozma.

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, it can be upgraded to the special Z-Move Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom by Lunala or Dawn Wings Necrozma holding Lunalium Z.

Effect

Moongeist Beam inflicts damage, ignoring all ignorable Abilities (Abilities that could affect the success or damage of a move) during its execution. However, it does not ignore Abilities if it is called by another move rather than directly used.
