From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Dual Chop (Japanese: ダブルチョップ Double Chop) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation V.
Dual Chop inflicts damage, hitting twice per use. Each strike has an equal chance to be a critical hit.
Dual Chop will hit again if the first strike breaks a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the second strike of this move.
If the target has an Ability that activates upon contact or a Rocky Helmet, each strike counts individually, enabling the Ability or Rocky Helmet to activate twice.
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.
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.
If the target has Weak Armor or Stamina, each strike will activate it.
Dual Chop cannot be selected in a battle.
