Foresight (Japanese: みやぶる Thought Read) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II.

Effect

Generation II

When Foresight is used, if the user's accuracy stat stage is less than the target's evasion stat stage, both stat stages will be treated as zero during accuracy checks against the target. This effect remains until the target switches out, but the effect may be passed via Baton Pass.

Foresight also removes the Ghost type's immunity to Fighting-type and Normal-type moves for any moves used against the target.

Foresight has an accuracy of 100%. Foresight will fail if it is used on a Pokémon already under its effect.

Generation III

Foresight now causes all accuracy checks against the target to ignore any changes to the target's evasion stat stages. This effect can no longer be Baton Passed. Foresight can also now successfully be used on Pokémon that are already under its effect.

Generation IV

Foresight now only causes accuracy checks against the target to ignore changes to its evasion stat stages if its evasion stat stage is greater than 0.

Foresight now also bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

Generations V to VII

Foresight can now be reflected with Magic Coat.

Foresight will once again fail if used against a Pokémon already under its effect.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Foresight, the user's critical hit ratio increases by two stages.

Generation VIII

Foresight cannot be selected in a battle.
