Foresight (Japanese: みやぶる Thought Read) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II.

Effect

Generation II and III

Foresight removes a Ghost-type Pokémon's immunity to Fighting-type and Normal-type attacks and restores the target's evasion stat to normal. It has an accuracy of 100%.

Generation IV

Same as before, only it has no particular accuracy, thus it never fails.

Generation V

Foresight can now be reflected with Magic Coat.
