- Base energy
- Stolen by Snatch
Produces a number of illusory clones which act as decoys for single-target moves.
The user dashes around the battlefield at top speed, leaving behind numerous illusory clones that mimic the user's every move. This attack can either be used to create a ring of clones around the target to greatly increase the accuracy of the next attack the user performs, as the target will have no idea from what direction the strike will come, or simply to create a crowd of body doubles to confuse the foe so that they might end up attacking a clone instead of its creator.
If Double Team is used to improve accuracy, the clones will all disappear after the highly accurate strike is made; otherwise, they will disappear only in response to damage or some circumstance that allows foes to see through the illusion. A Pokémon can control the number of clones that it creates, but each clone produced costs 1% energy, and the maximum number of clones it may produce is limited by its Speed. A Pokémon of average Speed can produce around five clones at maximum.
- Rain, hail, and sandstorm weather conditions will destroy Double Team clones, as the rain/hail/sand will go straight through the clones and reveal the illusion. This happens regardless of whether or not the Pokémon is actually damaged by the weather.
