It looks somehow pained as it rages around in search of light, which serves as its energy. It's apparently from another world.
~ Necrozma's Pokédex entry from Pokémon Ultra Sun
Necrozma is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in the series' seventh generation.


In the vast reaches of the endless dimension known as Ultra Space, there exists a city known as Ultra Megalopolis. Ultra Megalopolis was powered by light energy generously given to it by a Pokémon called Necrozma, the Blinding One. Necrozma was powered and made up of light, and let the citizens of Ultra Megalopolis use its light to power their city. However, the people of Ultra Megalopolis got greedy, and wished to take more light from Necrozma than it was willing to give. Their attempt to capture Necrozma accidentally caused part of its body to break off, making its light energy constantly leak out of its body. Enraged and in agony from its injury, Necrozma began rampaging, draining all of the light from Ultra Megalopolis before it was sealed away. Eventually, Necrozma managed to escape its imprisonment, and rampaged through the various worlds in a desperate attempt to feed of their light and return to its former glory.

Powers & Abilities

  • Prism Armor: Necrozma's Ability, which reduces the damage done by super effective attacks on it.
  • Light Manipulation and Absorption: Necrozma requires light to sustain itself, and it gains it by absorbing the light from surrounding areas. This shrouds any area it devours the light from in complete darkness. It can then fire its absorbed light as laser beams from its prism-like body. When it absorbs enough light, it can briefly return to its original form of Ultra Necrozma.
  • Ultra Wormholes: Necrozma can open Ultra Wormholes, portals through Ultra Space that let it traverse different dimensions.


  • Prismatic Laser: A special Psychic-type move. Necrozma refracts light off its body to fire off a series of laser beams at the target. While incredibly powerful, using this move forces Necrozma to stay still and recharge for a second.
  • Photon Geyser: A Psychic-type move. Necrozma attacks the target with a pillar of light. The move switches between physical and special damage depending on which of Necrozma's stats is higher.
  • Moonlight: A Fairy-type move. Necrozma absorbs moonlight to heal itself, which the amount of health regained varying with the weather.
  • Morning Sun: A Normal-type move. A variation of Moonlight that uses sunlight instead of moonlight.
  • Charge Beam: A special Electric-type move. Necrozma fires off a beam of electricity, and uses the residual energy to increase its Special Attack.
  • Mirror Shot: A special Steel-type move. Necrozma refracts light off itself and fires it at the foe as energy. This may lower the foe's accuracy.
  • Metal Claw: A physical Steel-type move. Necrozma turns its claws to metal and scratches the target, possibly increasing its Attack stat.
  • Confusion: A special Psychic-type move. Necrozma attacks the foe with a weak telekinetic force, damaging and possibly confusing them.
  • Slash: A physical Normal-type move. Necrozma slashes the foe with sharp claws. This attack has a high chance of a critical hit.
  • Stored Power: A special Psychic-type move. Necrozma releases energy stored inside its body at the opponent. This attack gets stronger the more Necrozma's stats have been raised.
  • Rock Blast: A physical Rock-type move. Necrozma fires a series of two to five rocks at the opponent.
  • Night Slash: A physical Dark-type move. Necrozma slashes the foe the instant an opportunity arises, with a high chance of landing a critical hit.
  • Gravity: A Psychic-type move. Necrozma uses telekinesis to increase gravity on the target, causing airborne foes to fall to the ground.
  • Psycho Cut: A physical Psychic-type move. Necrozma slashes the foe with a blade of psychic power, which has a high chance of landing a critical hit.
  • Power Gem: A special Rock-type move. Necrozma attacks with a ray of sparkling gemstones.
  • Autotomize: A Steel-type move. Necrozma sheds part of its body, making itself lighter and raising its speed.
  • Stealth Rock: A Rock-type move. Necrozma lays down stone shards that pierce foes who enter the arena.
  • Iron Defense: A Steel-type move. Necrozma hardens its body to the consistency of steel, greatly boosting its physical Defense.
  • Wring Out: A special Normal-type move. Necrozma wrings the target, dealing higher damage the more health Necrozma has.


  • Ultranecrozium Z: Necrozma's unique Z-Crystal. Holding it allows Dusk Mane or Dawn Wings Necrozma to undergo Ultra Burst, transforming it into Ultra Necrozma, and lets it use the Light That Burns the Sky Z-Move.

Alternate Forms

  • Dusk Mane Necrozma: By attaching itself to the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo, Necrozma will begin feeding off its light energy. In this form, Necrozma gains control over Solgaleo, boosting its Attack, Defense, and Special Defense, at the cost of slightly decreasing Special Attack and Speed, along with becoming part Steel-type. Dusk Mane Necrozma is described as ferocious and impossible to control, and it fights using the claws on its four limbs and back.
    • Sunsteel Strike: Solgaleo's signature move, which Necrozma gains access to by fusing with Solgaleo. Necrozma engulfs Solgaleo's body with sunlight and does a full-power charge attack that ignores all abilities that would stop or impede it.
  • Dawn Wings Necrozma: Similarly to Dusk Mane Necrozma, Necrozma can fuse with the Legendary Pokémon Lunala to feed off its light energy and take control of it. In this form, Necrozma gains a massive boost in Special Attack and Special Defense, minor boosts in Attack and Defense, and a minor decrease in speed, along with becoming part Ghost-type. Dawn Wings Necrozma uses the claws on its back to grab foes and tear them apart with brute force.
    • Moongeist Beam: Lunala's signature move, which Necrozma gains access to by fusing with Lunala. Necrozma fires off a beam of light from Lunala's wings that ignores all abilities that would stop or impede it.
  • Ultra Necrozma: When fused with either Solgaleo or Lunala and holding the Ultranecrozium Z, Necrozma can use the light absorbed from Solgaleo or Lunala to activate Ultra Burst, returning to its original form as Ultra Necrozma. In this form, Necrozma gains a massive boost in its speed and offensive stats, a minor boost to Special Defense, and a minor decrease in Defense, along with becoming a Psychic and Dragon-type. The light that makes up Ultra Necrozma's body is over 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and whatever it slices with its claws will melt due to the high temperature. Ultra Necrozma is capable of firing laser beams from every part of its body at once, with each beam having a range of over 18 miles.
    • Neuroforce: Ultra Necrozma's Ability. This boosts the power of all super effective moves used by Necrozma by a fifth of the move's original power.
    • Light That Burns the Sky: Ultra Necrozma's signature Z-Move, which requires the Ultranecrozium Z and the move Photon Geyser to work. Ultra Necrozma absorbs all the light from the surrounding area and condenses it into a massive sphere before firing it at the target. This move shares Photon Geyser's typing and ability to change between physical and special classification depending on which of Necrozma's stats is higher.
