Bullet Seed inflicts damage, hitting the target 2-5 times per use with a base power of 25 per strike. 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. Ignoring the possibility of missing, it will hit 3.168 times on average, giving it an average power of 79.2.
Bullet Seed may continue attacking after breaking a substitute. Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last strike of this move.
Pokémon with the ability Skill Link will always hit five times when using Bullet Seed 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.
