Laser Focus (Japanese: とぎすます Hone) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation VII.

Effect

Laser Focus causes the user's move to result in a critical hit until the end of next turn, unless that move's target has Battle Armor, Shell Armor, or is under the effect of Lucky Chant.

The effect of Laser Focus can be copied by Psych Up or Transform.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Laser Focus, the user's Attack stat rises by one stage.
