From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Plasma Fists (Japanese: プラズマフィスト Plasma Fist) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. It is the signature move of Zeraora.
Plasma Fists inflicts damage. In the remainder of the current turn, all Normal-type moves will become Electric-type, including status moves. This includes Max Moves, which will turn into Max Lightning (or G-Max Volt Crash or G-Max Stun Shock for Gigantamax Pikachu and Gigantamax Toxtricity, respectively).
The type-changing effect is applied after move type-changing Abilities, so cannot affect an originally Normal-type move used by a Pokémon with Pixilate but can affect an originally Fairy-type move used by a Pokémon with Normalize.
Plasma Fists does not exist in the game data of Pokémon Sun and Moon. As a result, a Pokémon knowing Plasma Fists cannot be traded from Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon to Sun and Moon, and if a Pokémon in Pokémon Bank knows the move it cannot be withdrawn in Pokémon Sun and Moon. In order to be transferred to Pokémon Sun and Moon, the Pokémon (excluding Zeraora which has no data in Pokémon Sun and Moon) must forget Plasma Fists.
