This move cannot be learned by any Pokémon by leveling up, so it may currently only be called by Metronome.
Double Slap is a Normal-type physical multi-strike move introduced in Generation I.
DoubleSlap inflicts damage, hitting the target 2-5 times per use. There is a ~33.3% chance that Double Slap will hit 2 times, a ~33.3% chance it will hit 3 times, a ~16.7% chance it will hit 4 times, and a ~16.7% chance it will hit 5 times. Provided that the move does not miss, it will hit ~3.167 times on average, giving it an average power of 47.5.
If the target has an Ability that activates upon contact, each strike counts individually, enabling the Ability to activate multiple times.
Double Slap continues attacking after breaking a substitute. If a Focus Sash, Focus Band, or Sturdy activates before the last strike is dealt, the following strike will cause the defending Pokémon to faint. A Focus Band can still activate repeatedly to prevent fainting, but each chance is independent of the previous one.
