Pokémon Sword & Shield

Back in April, CoroCoro ran a competition for the most powerful Steel-type move's name and today they have announced the winner. The move, known by Duraludon is known in Japan as roughly "Exhaustive Beam" or Do-or-Die Resistance" (てっていこうせん). This name is a pun based on two different Japanese phrases with the word behind it including the words Iron & Beam as well as the phrase Do-or-Die Resistance making an exact translation tricky. This move is Steel-type, Special with 140 base power and will do recoil of 50% of the user's HP.
