Sunsteel Strike (Japanese: メテオドライブ Meteor Drive) is a damage-dealing Steel-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature move of Solgaleo and Dusk Mane Necrozma.

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, it can be upgraded to the special Z-Move Searing Sunraze Smash by Solgaleo or Dusk Mane Necrozma holding Solganium Z.

Effect

Main article: Ignoring Abilities

Sunsteel Strike 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.) However, it does not ignore Abilities if it is called by another move rather than directly used.

Generation VIII

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Sunsteel Strike cannot be selected in a battle.
