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. 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. Comet Punch may now continue attacking after breaking a substitute. If Comet Punch activates a target's Focus Band, no subsequent hits can knock it out.

If the user is holding a King's Rock, the final strike has a chance to cause the opponent to flinch.

Generations III and IV

Each strike has an independent chance of activating an Ability that activates upon contact. If Effect Spore causes the attacker to fall asleep, the move will end immediately. If Comet Punch activates the target's Focus Sash, no subsequent hits can knock it out.

If the user is holding a King's Rock or Razor Fang, each consecutive hit has an equal chance to cause the opponent to flinch.

Generations V to VII

There is now a 35% chance that it will hit 2 times, a 35% chance it will hit 3 times, a 15% chance it will hit 4 times, and a 15% chance it will hit 5 times. The average total base power (including the 15% base miss chance) is now 47.4.

If a Focus Sash 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. Sturdy will activate with each hit if the defending Pokémon has a maximum HP of 1. Each individual strike will activate Weak Armor, Stamina, or a Rocky Helmet. Spiky Shield and King's Shield only activate once. Parental Bond does not activate when using Comet Punch.

Generation VIII onwards

Comet Punch cannot be selected in a battle.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Comet Punch inflicts damage, hitting the target 2-5 times per use. Each hit has a separate accuracy check, though the move will continue even when a hit fails. Prior to Super Mystery Dungeon, if a targeted Pokémon faints in middle of the attack and is revived with a Reviver Seed, the remaining hits will be able to continue to attack the enemy. The move's critical-hit rate is reduced (1% in the Rescue Team, Explorers and Adventure Squad series).
