Needle Arm (Japanese: ニードルアーム Needle Arm) is a damage-dealing Grass-type move introduced in Generation III. Prior to Generation V, it was the signature move of Cacnea and Cacturne.
Needle Arm inflicts damage and has a 30% chance of causing the target to flinch. Needle Arm will deal double the damage if its target had previously used Minimize.
Needle Arm no longer deals double damage it the target previously used Minimize.
Needle Arm cannot be selected in a battle.
