Fury Swipes is a damage-dealing Normal-type move.


Fury Swipes 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. Ignoring the possibility of missing, it will hit 3.168 times on average, giving it an average power of 57.024.

Pokémon with the ability Skill Link will always hit five times when using Fury Swipes if it does not miss.

Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the last strike of this move.

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 an ability that activates upon contact, each strike counts individually, enabling the ability to activate multiple times. If the target is holding a Rocky Helmet, the user is damaged for each strike.


The target is raked with sharp claws or scythes for two to five times in quick succession.
