Pin Missile (Japanese: ミサイルばり Missile Needle) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Pin Missile inflicts damage, hitting the target between 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. Although only the first hit can be a critical hit, each hit per use will deal the same amount of damage.

Pin Missile will end immediately if it breaks a Substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge one 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 the previous generations, except it will continue attacking after a Substitute is broken.
