Focus Energy (Japanese: きあいだめ Fighting Spirit Improvement) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Focus Energy worked incorrectly in Generation I. While it was intended to multiply the user's critical hit ratio by 4, it instead divides the critical hit ratio by 4. Focus Energy will be removed by switching or Haze. The effect of Focus Energy cannot stack, and it will fail if the user is already under its effect.

In Stadium, Focus Energy was fixed to properly quadruple the user's critical hit ratio.

Generation II and III

Focus Energy increases the user's critical hit ratio by 1 stage. This effect can be transferred by Baton Pass.

Generation IV and on

Focus Energy now increases the user's critical hit ratio by 2 stages instead of 1.
