Double Iron Bash (Japanese: ダブルパンツァー Double Panzer) is a damage-dealing Steel-type multi-strike move introduced in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. It is the signature move of Melmetal.

Effect

Double Iron Bash inflicts damage, hitting the target twice per use, and has a 30% chance of causing the target to flinch with each hit.

Generation VII

If the target has used Minimize, Double Iron Bash deals double its regular damage and bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

Generation VIII

Double Iron Bash no longer has a special interaction with Minimize.
