Trivia

  • In the Anime, the DP and BW series depict Dragon Pulse as a turquoise-colored energy sphere while the XY series and onwards depict it as a multi-colored energy blast in the literal shape of a dragon.
    • The same goes for the core series games where in the Gen IV and V games depict Dragon Pulse as a horizontal vortex while the Gen VI games and onwards depict the move as a laser beam.
    • Pokémon Battle Revolution, however, depicts Dragon Pulse as an energy sphere similar to how the Anime prior to XY depicted it.
