Sniper is an ability in the Pokémon series introduced in the fourth generation. It increases the damage of critical hits.


When a move lands a critical hit for this Pokémon, it will do 1.5 times the damage of standard critical hits. In generations IV and V, Critical Hits would do 3x damage instead of just 2. After Generation VI, this has been reduced to 2.25x damage instead of 1.5.
