Double-Edge is a very highly-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.


Generation I

Double-Edge does damage, and the user receives recoil damage equal to 25% of the damage done to the opponent.

If the user of Double-Edge attacks first and faints itself due to recoil damage, the opponent will not attack or be subjected to recurrent damage during that round. However, the user will still be subject to recurrent damage.

Self-inflicted recoil damage from Double-Edge from the previous turn can be countered if the opponent does not make a move on the following turn. If Double-Edge breaks a substitute, the user will take no recoil damage.

In Stadium, no recoil damage is taken if Double-Edge knocks out an opponent.

Double-Edge has a power of 100 in this generation.

Generation II and on

Same as before, only with a power of 120.

In the anime


Pidgeotto. The user flies towards its opponent and slams into it at full force.

Bonsly and Sudowoodo. The user tackles the opponent at a great speed.

Hippowdon. The user tackles the opponent at a great speed.
