Counter is a retaliatory Fighting-type move.


Counter has greatly decreased priority, but will deal double the damage the user has taken if it is hit by a Physical move before it acts. The move will fail if the user's substitute is hit instead.

Counter will only counter the last hit of a multi-strike move and the last attack of a partial trapping move. It cannot be called by Metronome or copied by Mirror Move, and does not factor in STAB and type effectiveness (Ghost-type Pokémon are still immune to it).

In a double battle, Counter will damage the foe that last struck the user with a physical attack.
