Ultra Burst (Japanese: ウルトラバースト Ultra Burst) is a transformation affecting Pokémon that was introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the only games it has appeared in. Pokémon that have undergone Ultra Burst are distinguished by the word "Ultra" in front of their species name. So far, the only known Pokémon to have this transformation is Necrozma. Ultra Burst is similar to both Mega Evolution and Primal Reversion, but instead of using the energy of people and Pokémon or the power of nature, Ultra Burst uses the light of another Pokémon.
In order to undergo Ultra Burst, Necrozma needs to be in either its Dusk Mane or Dawn Wings forms and be holding an Ultranecrozium Z. Once these conditions are met, the player must select a specific icon in order to activate the transformation. Once one turn has passed, Necrozma may use the exclusive Z-Move Light That Burns the Sky, provided it knows the move Photon Geyser.
Ultra Burst may only be activated once per battle; any other Necrozma in the user's party will not be able to become Ultra Necrozma even if it is also holding an Ultranecrozium Z. Necrozma will revert to its original form if it faints in battle and cannot activate Ultra Burst even if it is revived.
