Such as Light Screen, Protect, Detect, King's Shield, Mat Block, Substitute, etc.? Or does it only go through Protect and Detect? Or does it not go through anything at all...?

I know for sure it hits past Substitutes. I'm sure someone else can clarify if it goes past anything else - though that said, it will not go through anything like Protect.

Maybe the screens, though.

On Serebii, it says that it goes through Protect/Detect...

I'm pretty sure that was added in wrong. I could be wrong about that, but I have not seen a Boomburst hit through Protect, nor have I heard anything about it.

I'll be sure to test the Protect/Detect thing out then.

To die is easy, to live is hard. Nobody ever wants to achieve what's easy.

I tried it out on Protect just now and you're right. I'll see if I have any detect Pokemon to test it out on.

Protect and Detect are basically the same move with different names.

Except Detect is better because of Imprison. Its disadvantage is having 5 less PP.
