Sniper(JP) is a Pokémon ability introduced in the fourth generation.


The ability holder's critical hits do 1.5 times the damage of standard critical hits. Critical hits from the ability holder deal 2.25 times the damage of a hit that isn't critical. In generations IV and V, Sniper-boosted critical hits do 3 times the normal amount of damage since critical hits themselves dealt more damage. However, the amount Sniper boosted critical hits by remains the same (1.5 times).
