| Inner Focus
| Force of Will
Inner Focus (Japanese: せいしんりょく Force of Will) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Twenty-six Pokémon can have this Ability.
Inner Focus prevents the Pokémon from flinching. Pokémon with this Ability can still flinch due to a Pokémon with Mold Breaker, Teravolt or Turboblaze.
While some descriptions state that the user flinches, Focus Punch failing due to not taking damage is not flinching, so the move is unaffected by Inner Focus.
When its effect activates, the quote "<Pokémon> won't flinch because of its Inner Focus!" will appear.
Outside of battle
Inner Focus has no effect outside of battle.
