Spike Cannon (Japanese: とげキャノン Spike Cannon) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generations I - III

Spike Cannon inflicts damage, hitting the target 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.

Spike Cannon will end immediately if it breaks a Substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last hit of this move.

Generation IV

The effects are the same as the previous generations, except it will continue attacking after a Substitute is broken.
