Double Kick (Japanese: にどげり Double Kick) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Double Kick inflicts damage, hitting the target twice per use. Although only the first strike can be a critical hit, the second one will deal the same amount of damage.

Double Kick will end immediately if the first strike breaks a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the second strike of this move.

Generation II

Each strike now does damage independently, consequently enabling either of them to be critical.

Generations III and IV

Double Kick will now hit again if the first strike breaks a substitute.

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

Generation V

If the first strike activates the target's Focus Sash, Focus Band, or Sturdy, the second one will cause the defending Pokémon to faint. A Focus Band can still activate again to prevent fainting, but this 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.
