If the user's attack misses, it will use it again at the cost of 1 additional PP. If in a double battle, a move like Rock Slide hits one, but misses the other, it will use it again on BOTH targets. Gives up after 3 tries. The ability won't activate if:
-The target is immune to said move (whether it's an ability or type immunity)
-The target is protected by Wide Guard, Quick Guard, Protect or Detect
-The move runs out of PP
-The target is out of reach (ex: Dig, Fly, etc)
-The move uses 2 turns to charge
-Fling, Natural Gift, Selfdestruct, and Explosion will never trigger the ability

I hope I didn't leave anything out. So what you think?

What do you mean? Wouldn't it make unreliable moves like Focus Blast & Hypnosis more usable?

Singles/Rotation

Focus Blast (70 acc, 5 PP - 8 PP)
Hit: 70% chance of success, 1 PP
Miss, Hit: 91% chance of success, 2 PP
Miss, Miss, Hit: 97.3% chance of success, 3 PP

Sheer Cold (30 acc, 5 PP - 8 PP)
Hit: 30% chance of success, 1 PP
Miss, Hit: 51% chance of success, 2 PP
Miss, Miss, Hit: 65.7% chance of success, 3 PP


With bad luck, and only that attack available:
5-8 PP: 3 Turns until Struggle
10-16 PP: 6 Turns until Struggle
15-24 PP: 8 Turns until Struggle
20-32 PP: 11 Turns until Struggle



But the true danger of this ability is in Doubles/Triples.
With a little luck, these are the best cases:

Doubles
Poke A: Hit, Hit, Hit = 3 Hits
Poke B: Miss, Miss, Hit = 1 Hit

Poke A: Miss, Hit, Hit = 2 Hits
Poke B: Hit, Miss, Hit =2 Hits


Triples
Poke A: Hit, Hit, Hit = 3 Hits
Poke B: Hit, Hit, Hit = 3 Hits
Poke C: Miss, Miss, Hit = 1 Hit

Poke A: Hit, Hit, Hit = 3 Hits
Poke B: Miss, Hit, Hit = 2 Hits
Poke C: Hit, Miss, Hit = 2 Hits

Let's assume nothing with the ability can learn OHKO moves.
