For the PSI move in the Super Smash Bros. series, see PK Flash (Super Smash Bros.).

PK Flash (PKフラッシュ, PK Flash), known as PSI Flash in EarthBound, is a PSI ability in EarthBound and Mother 3. It targets all enemies, and may cause them to suffer from crying, numbness, feeling strange or becoming unconscious. In EarthBound, PK Flash has power levels that determine what effects it can have, but in Mother 3 it only has one.

PSI Flash is realized in EarthBound by Ness, and in Mother 3 by Lucas, where, just like PK Love, it is learned not through level-up, but through an event. Surprisingly, it is possible to use PSI Flash to instantly defeat strong enemies, such as Ness' Nightmare in EarthBound and the King Statue in Mother 3, albeit with a low success rate.

PSI Flash serves as the successor move to both PK Beam and Darkness from EarthBound Beginnings.
