Double Slap (Japanese: おうふくビンタ Round Trip Slap), formatted as DoubleSlap prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a damage-dealing Normal-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

DoubleSlap 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 45. Although only the first strike can be a critical hit, each successive one will deal the same amount of damage.

DoubleSlap will end immediately if it breaks a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last strike of this move.

Generation II

All strikes now do damage independently, consequently enabling any of them to be critical.

Generation III

If the target has an Ability that activates upon contact, each strike counts individually, enabling the Ability to activate multiple times.

DoubleSlap may now continue attacking after breaking a substitute.

Generation IV

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

Generation V and on

There is now a 33.3% chance that Double Slap 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 47.52.

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.

Trivia

  • Like most multi-strike moves, this move can hit the opponent up to five times. This is despite being called Double Slap, which suggests that it only hits twice.
    • However, the Chinese, French, Korean, and Japanese names for Double Slap do not indicate a specific number of strikes.
