Future Sight (Japanese: みらいよち Future Sight) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move introduced in Generation II.

Effect

Generations II to IV

On the turn Future Sight is selected, this attack will do nothing other than say that the user has foreseen an attack. Two turns later, Future Sight will do damage against the target, using the Special Attack stat of the user and Special Defense stat of the target at the time of use (not at the time the attack actually hits; if the target is switched out, the attack will hit its replacement but the damage is based on the switched-out Pokémon). Although Future Sight is a Psychic-type attack, it will not take type into account, ignoring weaknesses, immunities and resistances. Therefore, it is able to hit Dark-type foes and does not receive STAB. Furthermore, Future Sight cannot cause a critical hit and its damage is not increased by Life Orb.

Future Sight can hit through Wonder Guard, Protect, and Detect. It can knock out a target that used Endure, but not one wearing a Focus Sash that has full HP.

Future Sight cannot be used on a target multiple times; it must complete before it may be used on a target again. Doom Desire and Future Sight cannot be stacked.

Future Sight will fail if it would hit the Pokémon that used the move.

If Future Sight misses, the miss will not occur until the third turn, and the game will display that the move "failed" rather than "missed".

Generation V

Future Sight's power is increased from 80 to 100, its accuracy from 90% to 100%, and its PP from 15 to 10.

Future Sight now calculates its damage when it hits rather than when it's used. It does Psychic-type damage, will take the user's and target's types into account, can receive STAB, and will not necessarily hit through Wonder Guard or hit Dark-type Pokémon. Future Sight uses the user's Special Attack and the hit Pokémon's Special Defense at the time damage is dealt.

Generation VI

Future Sight's power was increased again from 100 to 120.

In contests, the move increases from two appeal to six appeal if the move used by the previous Pokémon that round was also a Psychic-type move. This bonus cannot trigger if used first in the round, even if the move used by the last round's last Pokémon was a Psychic-type move.
