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 hit of Icicle Spear is treated like a separate attack:
- Each blow can get a critical hit independently.
- Abilities that activate on contact (Static, Weak Armor, Iron Barbs etc.) activate for each blow.
- If the Sturdy ability or Focus Sash/Band items activate 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 Generations 3-4, if the Focus Sash/Band items activate before the final hit, subsequent hits do not cause the holder to faint.
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.
