After Bide is selected, the user will be unable to select a move for an idling period of 2 turns, though it will still be able to switch out during this time. Afterwards, Bide will do damage equal to twice the damage received during the idling period. Although Bide is a Normal-type move, type has no effect on the calculated damage inflicted by this attack; thus, Bide does not receive same-type attack bonus.
The damage received during the period is counted as equal to the last amount of damage done. The last amount of damage done will include crash damage, an opponent's self-inflicted confusion damage, and the full damage absorbed by a substitute. Additionally, if the opponent does not use an attack that misses, the last amount of damage done will not be reset, effectively resulting in damage done during the previous turn also being counted as damage done during that turn.
When using Bide in a Double Battle, a Pokémon cannot switch out of battle. Also during Double Battles, this attack will hit the last Pokémon to attack the user, including its ally.
If sleep status is inflicted on a Pokémon using Bide the move is disrupted and does not continue even after the Pokémon wakes up.
