Something thats always ticked me is Double Slap. For the sole purpose that it says "Double Slap", but can hit up to five times.

I brung this up because I was trying to catch a Chansey earlier(Diamond), and it did Double Slap 3 Times, hitting the First twice, Second Three times, than Third Five times.

Why is it like so?

The same reason why Surf is called "Surf" when in turn the Pokemon itself is really swimming (although you're surfing on it, but in-battle you're not)

Nothing really makes sense anymore...

Nothing really makes sense anymore...Agreed. As much as a subtle difference this is, it is really annoying. But thanxs for the input.

I thought this thread was more like "why does Double-slap exist?" because it's one of the weakest moves ever. I guess they had to give a super-weak move to those pink puffies Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Happiny.

It's weak, but annoying. It looks cool in DP, though.

Lol, I do agree that it's kind of stupid, but it's just one of those annoying little things I guess. Maybe each one is a double slap.. so if it hit 3 times technically it's actually hitting 6, because it's given to such weak pokemon.. xD you never know!

Double-Slap is the stupidest move ever. I mean besides splash. It's not that strong, but when it hits up to 5 times, theres bound to be sometime of critical hit in there. Usually happens on the third. But its more than just an oxymoron its freaking DOUBLE-SLAP.

I think it's called double-slap cuz, like Autaven said, each one is probably a double-slap. One with the palm, and then the returning slap with the back of the hand.

pip-pap...pip-pap...pip-pap.
Hit the enemy 3 times!

I think that name wouldn't even fit in older games!
