Comet Punch (Japanese: れんぞくパンチ Consecutive Punch) is a damage-dealing Normal-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Comet Punch 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. Ignoring the possibility of missing, it will hit 3 times on average, giving it an average power of 54. Although only the first strike can be a critical hit, each successive one will deal the same amount of damage. Comet Punch will end instantly upon breaking a substitute. Bide and Counter deal damage based on the last strike alone.

Generation II

Each strike has an independent chance of being a critical hit, as well as activating a King's Rock. If Comet Punch activates a target's Focus Band, no subsequent hits can knock it out.

Generations III and IV

Comet Punch may now continue attacking after breaking a substitute. Each strike has an independent chance of activating a Razor Fang or a contact Ability. If Effect Spore causes the attacker to fall asleep, the move will end immediately. If Comet Punch activates the target's Focus Sash or Sturdy, no subsequent hits can knock it out.

Generations V and VI

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 57.024.

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. Each individual strike will activate Weak Armor or a Rocky Helmet. Spiky Shield and King's Shield only activate once. Parental Bond does not activate when using Comet Punch.
