Do both hits of Parental Bond have separate chances of activating Focus Band, or only one hit? (This is in USUM if that helps at all)

Best answer

Generation II

If the Pokémon holding a Focus Band is hit by a damaging move that would cause it to faint, there is a ~12% (30/256) chance the Focus Band will activate and cause its holder to survive with 1 HP. Focus Band can allow the holder to survive Future Sight. It cannot activate as a result of self-inflicted confusion damage.
If Focus Band activates as a result of a multi-strike move, the holder does not faint from any of the strikes.

Generation V onward

From Generation V on, Focus Band must trigger separately for each strike of a multi-strike move.
