Spike Cannon (move)
|PP||15 (max. 24)|
Spike Cannon 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 Spike Cannon 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 Spike Cannon to always hit the maximum number of times.
In Generations 1-3, Spike Cannon ends immediately if any hit breaks a Substitute.
In Generation 1, each hit will always deal the same damage - if the first critical hits, so will the rest.
