bullet seed not getting technician boost?

Issue #2611 new
TechnoSavvy created an issue

When my Jolly Technician Breloom uses bullet seed it does less damage that it should. When training against lv100 audinos with the level trainer as a lv85 breloom that is fully invested in attack, 3 hits would do roughly 25% of its health bar which was about the same that rock tomb does. According to pokemonshowdown.com damage calculator a bullet seed should be doing closer to 50%. The only conclusion I can reach for this is that bullet seed is either not getting a STAB boost or not getting a Technician boost for some reason. It may also only be getting it on the first hit, but I'm not sure.

    I don't think technician is the issue. I came here to say that seemingly all multi-hit moves are severely under damaging. Icicle spear on a +6 cloyster was doing dmg comparable to a 40-50 base power move.

    That really sucks if thats true. I've also noticed recently that if the first strike is a crit, all of the following strikes deal slightly increased damage. Have you noticed the same thing? It only seems to happen when the first hit is a crit and not any of the following hits. Hopefully this will all be fixed in the next update.
