Steel Beam (Japanese: てっていこうせん Beam of Steely Resolve) is a damage-dealing Steel-type move introduced in Generation VIII.

Effect

Pokémon Sword and Shield

Steel Beam inflicts damage, and the user takes damage equal to half of its maximum HP rounded up (unless it has Magic Guard).

The user of Steel Beam will take damage even if the target is protected from it, if it hits a substitute, or if the move misses. If Steel Beam fails due to there being no targets (i.e. if all Pokémon in range fainted before the move was used), the user does not take damage.

Rock Head and Reckless do not affect Steel Beam.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Steel Beam cannot be selected in a battle.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Steel Beam is usable and functions as it did in Sword and Shield. Its base power is changed from 140 to 120. Steel Beam is a recoil move in this game.
