The Abilities {{a|Battle Armor}} and {{a|Shell Armor}} and the effect of {{m|Lucky Chant}} will prevent any critical hit being scored on a Pokémon.
 
The moves {{m|Storm Throw}} and {{m|Frost Breath}} will always result in a critical hit (unless prevented by one of the above effects). The move {{m|Laser Focus}} guarantees the next move to score a critical hit.

Pokémon with the Ability {{a|Merciless}} will always score critical hits on {{status|poisoned}} Pokémon (unless prevented by one of the above effects).
