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


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.
