From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Foresight (Japanese: みやぶる Thought Read) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II.
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%.
Same as before, only it has no particular accuracy, thus it never fails.
Foresight can now be reflected with Magic Coat.

- When this move is used against Sableye or Spiritomb, they can be hit by supereffective moves due to the Ghost type's immunity normally masking a Fighting-type weakness.
