Double Slap (Japanese: おうふくビンタ Round Trip Slap), formatted as DoubleSlap prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a damage-dealing Normal-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

DoubleSlap 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.

DoubleSlap will end immediately if it breaks a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last strike of this move.

Generation II

All strikes now do damage independently, enabling any of them to be critical hits. DoubleSlap may now continue attacking after breaking a substitute.

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

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

Pokémon with the Ability Skill Link will always hit five times when using DoubleSlap unless it misses.

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.

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.

Generation VIII

Double Slap cannot be selected in a battle.

Trivia

  • Like most multi-strike moves, this move can hit the opponent up to five times. This is despite being called Double Slap, which suggests that it only hits twice.
    • However, the Chinese, French, Korean, and Japanese names for Double Slap do not indicate a specific number of strikes.
