Barrage (Japanese: たまなげ Ball Throw) is a damage-dealing Normal-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation I. It is the signature move of Exeggcute and Exeggutor.

Effect

Generation I

Barrage inflicts damage, hitting 2-5 times per use. There is a 37.5% chance that it will hit 2 times, a 37.5% chance that it will hit 3 times, a 12.5% chance that it will hit 4 times, and a 12.5% chance that it will hit 5 times. This gives the attack an average power of 45, ignoring the possibility of missing. Although only the first hit can be a critical hit, each successive hit will deal the same amount of damage.

Barrage will end immediately if it breaks a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last hit of this move.

Generation II and III

Same as Generation I, but all hits will do damage independently, consequently enabling any of them to be critical.

Generation IV

Same as previous generations, except it will continue attacking after a substitute is broken.

Generation V

Unlike previous generations, if Focus Sash, Focus Band, or Sturdy activate before the last hit is dealt, the following hit will cause the defending Pokémon to faint; however, Focus Band can still activate repeatedly to prevent fainting, but each chance is independent of the previous one. Each hit will cause Weak Armor to activate.
