From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Double Hit (Japanese: ダブルアタック Double Attack) is a damage-dealing Normal-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation IV.
Double Hit does damage, hitting twice per use. Each hit has an equal chance to be a critical hit.
If the target has an Ability which activates upon contact, each hit counts individually, enabling the Ability to activate multiple times.
Double Hit will hit twice even if it breaks a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the second hit of this move.
Unlike previous generations, if the first hit activates the target's Focus Sash, Focus Band, or Sturdy, the second hit will cause the defending Pokémon to faint; however, Focus Band can still activate again 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.
An Aipom who knows this move will evolve into Ambipom when leveled up.
