Bone Rush (Japanese: ボーンラッシュ Bone Rush) is a damage-dealing Ground-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation IV, it was one of the signature moves of Cubone and Marowak.

Effect

Generation II

Bone Rush 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. Each strike made has an equal chance to be a critical hit.

Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last strike of this move.

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

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.

Generation V onward

The accuracy of Bone Rush is increased from 80% to 90%. 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.

If a Focus Sash, Focus Band, or Sturdy 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 of the previous one.

If the target has Weak Armor or Stamina, each strike will activate it.

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Bone Rush is a move with 12 base power, 70% accuracy, and 12 PP. It damages an enemy in front of the user 2 to 5 times, cutting corners. This move's base critical hit rate is lower than normal, at 2%.

In Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, the move's PP has been decreased to 8 and its accuracy to 37.5%.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Bone Rush is Lucario's second move. It is obtained by reaching level 7 and upgrading Meteor Mash into it instead of Close Combat. The user rapidly strikes with a bone, damaging enemies hit. The user then throws the bone after the final strike, shoving enemies and causing the bone to land a short distance away. The user can activate Bone Rush again to teleport to the bone, damaging enemies in a small area around it. Landing one of Bone Rush's initial strikes will reset the cooldown timer for Extreme Speed on that target. At level 13, teleporting to the bone will reset the cooldown of Extreme Speed or Power-Up Punch.
