Comet Punch is a Normal-type damage-dealing move.

Functionality

Comet Punch is a multi-strike move, hitting the target 2-5 times per use. The odds of hitting 2 or 3 times are higher than 4 or 5 times, with the formers having 33.3% chance each, and the latters having 16.7% chance each. This results in an average of ~3.167 hits per successful attack, giving an average power of 57.

Each attack are considered different attacks. Hitting a Pokémon with an ability such as Rough Skin or Static, for example, will give a chance for the ability to trigger on every hit, resulting in higher recoil damage and chance to get paralyzed respectively. The ability Sturdy and the Focus Sash item can activate on the first hit, but the second hit will finish the opposing Pokémon.

If the user has the Skill Link ability, Comet Punch will always hit 5 times, as long as it does not misses.

If the user has the Iron Fist ability, Comet Punch’s power will increase by 20%, reaching 21.6 power per hit.

Bugs

  • Critical hits are calculated only once for all hits. This behavior differs from the original games, where each hit has their own chance of doing a critical hit. (Report thread)
