From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Focus Blast (Japanese: きあいだま Fighting Spirit Bullet) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move, introduced in Generation IV. It appears to be related to the concept of a "Chi ball" or "psi ball". It has been TM52 since Generation IV.
Focus Blast does damage and has a 10% chance of lowering the target's Special Defense.
|| The user heightens its mental focus and unleashes its power. It may also lower the target’s Sp. Def.

- Focus Blast is the only Special Fighting-type attack that has an accuracy lower than 100%.
- Focus Blast is one of the few moves in Pokémon Battle Revolution that is visually identical to its handheld counterpart.
- Focus Blast is the only variation of Blizzard that cannot be learned by any Pokémon via leveling up and the only variation that has a chance of lowering an opponent's stat.
- In the early Japanese versions of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Focus Blast had a different animation. Instead of 'spreading' when it touched the opponent, it disintegrated.
