Comet Punch (Japanese: れんぞくパンチ Consecutive Punch) is a damage-dealing Normal-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Comet Punch 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 54, 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.

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

Generation II

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

Generation III

If the target has an Ability which activates upon contact, each hit counts individually, enabling the Ability to activate multiple times.

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.

If the target is holding a Rocky Helmet, the user is damaged for each hit.
