Competitive Use

Fusion Bolt is a strong and accurate move, and three Pokemon get it; Victini, Zekrom, and Kyurem-B. All three of these Pokemon can make great use of this move. Zekrom is a good user of Fusion Bolt, though while it's weaker than Bolt Strike, it is still powerful, not to mention that it fills a nice space on that last moveslot, filling a good STAB move in the event that Bolt Strike's PP runs out, not to mention it offers perfect accuracy. Victini also uses this move as a viable weapon to maim the bulky Water-types, particularly Slowbro and Milotic, to do heavy damage. Alongside the powerful V-create, Victini becomes nigh impossible to wall. Kyurem-B also uses it as a coverage move to maim things that resist its Outrage, most notably Skarmory.

In doubles, this move has much more use. Fusion Bolt will always be the preferable move over Bolt Strike, as it will either power up or be powered up by Fusion Flare, should it do so, a 200 Base Power attack is nothing to laugh at. Perfect accuracy only adds to its use, making it almost completely superior to Bolt Strike. Overall, Fusion Bolt is always a move to consider for a moveslot.
