Getting three hits with a 15-power multi-hit move does the same damage as if you used a standard 15-hit move three times. In other words, run the BDF once for each hit, and add 'em up. However, I believe multi-hit moves get all hit a CH or none a CH. And of course, all hit or none hit.

ah that makes sense enough. do you know the reason why critical hit pin missile is messed up on pbs?

edit;
wait, i have a hypothesis:
2 hits does 2 times the damage
3 hits does 4 times the damage
4 hits does 9 times the damage
5 hits does 16 times the damage

damage is the move done once

(hits - 1)^2

but that wouldent work with 1 or 2 hits

The fact that each hit in a multi-hit attack is run through the Attack Process (damage formula) separately is why sometimes you may see the message "It's super effective!" or similar messages repeatedly.

The hits in such an attack are not combined into one giant hit.

Also, a single multi-hit attack can both break a Sub with its first few hits and then use the remaining hits to damage the Subbing Pokemon.
