Comet Punch (Japanese: れんぞくパンチ Consecutive Punch) is a damage-dealing Normal-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Comet Punch 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. Although only the first strike can be a critical hit, each successive one will deal the same amount of damage. Comet Punch will end instantly upon breaking a substitute. Bide and Counter deal damage based on the last strike alone.

Generation II

Each strike has an independent chance of being a critical hit. Comet Punch may now continue attacking after breaking a substitute. If Comet Punch activates a target's Focus Band, no subsequent hits can knock it out.

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

Each strike has an independent chance of activating an Ability that activates upon contact. If Effect Spore causes the attacker to fall asleep, the move will end immediately. If Comet Punch activates the target's Focus Sash, no subsequent hits can knock it out.

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.

Generations V to VII

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. Each individual strike will activate Weak Armor, Stamina, or a Rocky Helmet. Spiky Shield and King's Shield only activate once. Parental Bond does not activate when using Comet Punch.

Generation VIII

Comet Punch cannot be selected in a battle.
