I guess the point of moves like bullet seed is to have a chance you might hit multiply times. But I'm talking about moves like dual chop where it's fixed how many times it hits, is there any reason at all - does it bypass stuff like focus sash - or just have no point? I'm just really wondering.

There are a few uses.

  • Like you said, breaks Focus Sashes
  • Bypasses Sturdy and Multiscale
  • Has double the chance to get a Critical Hit
  • On the second hit berries won't affect it
  • Breaks Substitutes

But I would say the main use is Sashes and Sturdy.
