Solar Beam (Japanese: ソーラービーム Solar Beam), formatted as SolarBeam prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a damage-dealing Grass-type move introduced in Generation I. It is TM22 in Generation I to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, along with in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and TM45 in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. It is TM11 in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Effect

50px This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Is the power of Solar Beam affected by shadowy aura (like it is by rain, hail and sandstorm)?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Generation I

SolarBeam does nothing on the turn it is selected, other than state that the user has taken in sunlight. On the following turn, SolarBeam will inflict damage, PP will be deducted from it, and it will count as the last move used. Once SolarBeam is selected, the user will not be able to switch out until it is disrupted or fully executed.

If SolarBeam is not fully executed, PP will not be deducted from it, and it will not count as the last move used. If the target uses Mirror Move during the turn that the user takes in sunlight, Mirror Move will copy the move that the user executed immediately before using SolarBeam (or fail if it can't).

Sleep, freezing, partial trapping, and flinching will pause, but not disrupt, the duration of SolarBeam.

In Pokémon Stadium, Mirror Move will copy SolarBeam on either of the turns it takes to execute.

Generation II

SolarBeam will not need a turn to charge if used during harsh sunlight. It will have its power halved if used during rain.

If the user is prevented from attacking with SolarBeam during harsh sunlight by conditions such as flinching, paralysis, and confusion, then PP will still be deducted regardless, due to the fact that SolarBeam was designed as a two-turn attack.

If SolarBeam is disrupted from succeeding due to conditions such as flinching, paralysis, or confusion, the entire move will now be cancelled rather than simply paused.

Generations III and IV

SolarBeam will also have its power halved if used during hail, fog or when a sandstorm is raging.

If a Pokémon holding a Power Herb uses SolarBeam, it will consume the Power Herb to execute SolarBeam in one turn. If there is harsh sunlight, the Power Herb will not be consumed.

SolarBeam can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra four appeal points if either Growth or Sunny Day was used in the prior turn.

Generations V and VI

A minor change shows the charging half of SolarBeam's animation happening even if it is sunny, where previously it did not. The actual attack will happen immediately after.

Strong winds have no effect on Solar Beam's power.

Solar Beam can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if Sunny Day was used in the prior turn.

Generation VII

In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Solar Beam's power was increased from 120 to 200.

Generation VIII

Solar Beam's power was changed back to 120.
