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.
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 immediately if it breaks a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last strike of this move.
All strikes now do damage independently, consequently enabling any of them to be critical.
If the target has an Ability that activates upon contact, each strike counts individually, enabling the Ability to activate multiple times.
Comet Punch may now continue attacking after breaking a substitute.
Generation V and on
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.
If the target has Weak Armor, each strike will activate it.
If the target is holding a Rocky Helmet, the user is damaged for each strike.
