Bonemerang 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.
Bonemerang will end immediately if the first strike breaks a
substitute. Bide will only acknowledge the second strike of this move.
Each strike now does damage independently, consequently enabling either of them to be critical.
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
Bonemerang will now hit again if the first strike breaks a substitute.
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
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.
