|PP||20 (max. 32)|
Targets a single adjacent Pokemon.
Twineedle deals damage and will strike twice (with 25 base power each time). It has a 20% chance of poisoning the target. Poison or Steel type Pokemon or those with the ability Immunity cannot be poisoned.
Each hit of Twineedle is treated like a separate attack:
In Generations 2-4, if the Focus Sash/Band items activate before the final hit, subsequent hits do not cause the holder to faint.
In Generations 1-3, Twineedle 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.
