Personally, I'm leaning towards: "Do Ore Dire Straits", but that's probably too long.

From Serebii:

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.

I hope whatever it is, they use some metal other than “iron” or “steel”. I also like alliteration when it comes to strong moves. Something like:
-Mercurial Mayhem
-Silver Stream
-Cobalt Cannon
-Barium Blast
-Lead Laser
-Aluminium Assault

I think the official english translation is All-Out Resistance

It’s either “Settling Bismuth” or “Let’s Get Down to Bismuth” for me.

Its a move that animation shows it causes a blast right?
Looks like its should be "Alloy Blast"?
It looks like a beam but it works like a cannon and causes a blast on the trailer that hurts the usser thats made of Alloy. Like old historical canons that after some shots were broken.
Could be a sound move.
Better that Bulletproof will block it.
We ready have Flash cannon.

Bismuth Blast, but even then, sounds too complicated for children. Wait, does that even matter?
The japanese name for night slash is crossroad kill, it refers to the fact that in feudal japan, samurai warriors had the right to kill someone crossing the road just to check how sharp is their new sword. So I don't think they care about children while naming stuff

Well, to make a comparison with another language, in Spanish it's called Meta-Laser. YMMV if that is a better name.
