Searing Sunraze Smash (Japanese: サンシャインスマッシャー Sunshine Smasher) is a damage-dealing Steel-type Z-Move introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. It is the exclusive Z-Move of Solgaleo and Dusk Mane Necrozma and an upgraded version of their signature move, Sunsteel Strike.


Generation VII

Main article: Ignoring Abilities

Searing Sunraze Smash 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

Searing Sunraze Smash cannot be selected in a battle.


Games Description
USUM After obtaining Z-Power, the user, Solgaleo, 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.


Solgaleo or Dusk Mane Necrozma, or a Pokémon transformed into either, can use Searing Sunraze Smash if it knows Sunsteel Strike, holds a Solganium Z, and if its Trainer wears a Z-Power Ring.
