Effects

Double Kick deals damage and will strike twice (with 30 base power each time). Each strike of Double Kick 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 move Counter only counters the final hit, but Bide counters the complete damage.

Changes

In Generations 2-4, if a Focus Sash or Focus Band activates before the final hit, subsequent hits do not cause the holder to faint.

In Generations 1-3, Double Kick 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.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Fightinium Z and uses its Z-Power, Double Kick turns into All-Out Pummeling and has base power 100.
