Bullet Seed (Japanese: タネマシンガン Seed Machine Gun) is a damage-dealing Grass-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation III. It was TM09 from Generation III to Generation IV.

Effect

Generation III

Bullet Seed inflicts damage, hitting the target 2-5 times per use with a base power of 10 per strike. 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. Ignoring the possibility of missing, it will hit 3 times on average, giving it an average power of 30. Each strike made has an equal chance to be a critical hit.

Bullet Seed may continue attacking after breaking a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last strike of this move.

Generation IV

Pokémon with the Ability Skill Link will always hit five times when using Bullet Seed unless it misses. However, no Pokémon could naturally possess both Skill Link and Bullet Seed until Generation V.

Generation V

Bullet Seed's base power increased from 10 to 25. There is now a 33.3% chance that it will hit 2 times, a 33.3% chance it will hit 3 times, a 16.7% chance it will hit 4 times, and a 16.7% chance it will hit 5 times. Ignoring the possibility of missing, it will hit 3.168 times on average, giving it an average power of 79.2.

If a Focus Sash, Focus Band, or Sturdy activates before the last strike is dealt, the following strike will cause the defending Pokémon to faint. A Focus Band can still activate repeatedly to prevent fainting, but each chance is independent of the previous one.

If the target has Weak Armor, each strike will activate it.
