Effects

Hyper Beam deals damage, but the user must recharge on the next turn (bringing its effective power down to 75 per turn).

If the user has the ability Truant, it will recharge in the same turn that it loafs around.

Hyper Beam is the Special counterpart to Giga Impact.

Changes

In Generation 1, if Hyper Beam KOs a Pokemon, it does not need to recharge.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Normalium Z and uses its Z-Power, Hyper Beam turns into Breakneck Blitz and has base power 200.
