Anticipation (Japanese: きけんよち Danger Premonition) is an ability introduced in Generation IV. Five Pokémon have this ability.

Effect

In battle

Anticipation causes the Pokémon to "shudder" upon entering battle against opponents with super-effective attacks, one-hit knockout attacks such as Sheer Cold, or the moves Selfdestruct or Explosion.

It will not notify the Pokémon in the case of a super-effective Hidden Power, Judgment, Weather Ball or Natural Gift, as they are nominally Template:Type2.

Outside of battle

Anticipation has no effect outside of battle.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, a Pokémon detects super-effective moves by hitting the opponent with a regular attack.

As of Generation IV, all Pokemon with this ability have a 4x Super Effective weakness, not counting Wormadam's ground form as it is technically still Wormadam.
