Rock Blast is a damage-dealing Rock-type move.

Effect

Rock Blast inflicts damage, hitting the target 2-5 times per use. There is a 33.3% chance that it will hit 2 times, a 33.3% chance that it will hit 3 times, a 16.7% chance that it will hit 4 times, and a 16.7% chance that it will hit 5 times. This means that it will hit 3.168 times on average provided that it does not miss, giving it an average power of 79.2. Each strike made has an equal chance to be a critical hit.

Pokémon with the ability Skill Link will always hit five times when using Rock Blast unless it misses.

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.

If the target has Weak Armor, each strike will activate it. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last strike of this move.

Description

Description
The user hurls hard rocks at the target. Two to five rocks are launched in quick succession.
