Pin Missile is a damage-dealing Bug-type multi-strike move.


There is now a ~33.3% chance that it 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 ~44.333.

Pin Missile may now continue attacking after breaking a substitute.

Pokémon with the Ability Skill Link will always hit five times when using Pin Missile, if it does not miss.

If the user is holding a King's Rock or Razor Fang, each consecutive hit has an equal chance to cause the opponent to flinch.


Sharp spikes are shot at the target in rapid succession. They hit two to five times in a row.
