Effect

050Diglett.png This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Does the counter only increase if the move is used while the Pokémon holds the Metronome? Is the counter reset if the Pokémon's Metronome is stolen? Do moves called by other moves count as the called move or the calling move? Is the counter still increased if the move fails?.

Generation IV

Boosts the power of a move used consecutively by the holder. The Metronome boosts the power of a move by 10% for every time it has been used consecutively, up to a maximum increase of 100%. If the Pokémon is switched out or uses a different move, the counter is reset.

Since the Metronome counts the number of uses of a move, multi-strike moves only increase the counter once per use regardless of the number of strikes.

Generation V onward

The Metronome boosts the power of a move by 20% for every time it has been used consecutively, up to a maximum increase of 100%.
