Double Kick (Japanese: にどげり Double Kick) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Double Kick 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.

Double Kick will end immediately if the first strike breaks a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the second strike of this move.

Generation II

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

Double Kick will now hit again if the first strike breaks a substitute.

If the target has an Ability that activates upon contact, each strike counts individually, enabling the Ability to activate twice.

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 onwards

If a Focus Sash 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. Sturdy will activate with each hit if the defending Pokémon has a maximum HP of 1.

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

If the target is holding a Rocky Helmet, the user is damaged for each strike.
