Twineedle is a damage-dealing Bug-type move.

Effect

Twineedle inflicts damage, hitting the target twice per use. Each strike has a 20% chance of poisoning the target.

If the first strike activates the target's Focus Sash, Focus Band, or Sturdy, the second one will cause the defending Pokémon to faint. A Focus Band can still activate again to prevent fainting, but this 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 second strike of this move.

Description

Description
The user damages the target twice in succession by jabbing it with two spikes. It may also poison the target.
