Icicle Spear (move)
|PP||30 (max. 48)|
Icicle Spear hits 2-5 times per turn used. The probability of each interval is shown to the right, with the total power after each hit.
Each strike of Icicle Spear is treated like a separate attack:
- Each strike can get a critical hit independently.
- Abilities that activate on contact (Static, Weak Armor, Iron Barbs etc.) activate for each strike.
- If the Sturdy ability, Focus Sash, or Focus Band activates before the final hit, the subsequent hit will still deal damage and therefore cause the opponent to faint.
- If the first hit breaks a Substitute, the second hit will deal damage to the target Pokémon.
The Skill Link ability will cause Icicle Spear to always hit the maximum number of times.
In Generation 3, Icicle Spear ends immediately if any hit breaks a Substitute.
In Generations 3-4, Icicle Spear has a base power of 10.
