Double Iron Bash (move)
|Double Iron Bash|
ダブルパンツァー Double Panzer
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.
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.
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.
Double Iron Bash no longer has a special interaction with Minimize.
