Dual Chop (Japanese: ダブルチョップ Double Chop) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

Dual Chop inflicts damage, hitting twice per use. Each hit has an equal chance to be a critical hit.

Dual Chop will hit twice even if it breaks a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the second hit of this move.

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

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.
