Tail Slap (move)
|PP||10 (max. 16)|
Tail Slap 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 Tail Slap 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 Tail Slap to always hit the maximum number of times.
