Future Sight (Japanese: みらいよち Future Sight) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move introduced in Generation II.

Effect

Generations II to IV

On the turn Future Sight is selected, this attack will do nothing other than say that the user has foreseen an attack. Two turns later, Future Sight will do damage against the target, using the Special Attack stat of the user and Special Defense stat of the target at the time of use (not at the time the attack actually hits; if the target is switched out, the attack will hit its replacement but the damage is based on the switched-out Pokémon). Although Future Sight is a Psychic-type attack, it will not take type into account, ignoring weaknesses, immunities and resistances. Therefore, it is able to hit Dark-type foes and does not receive STAB. Furthermore, Future Sight cannot cause a critical hit and its damage is not increased by Life Orb.

Future Sight can hit through Wonder Guard, Protect, and Detect. It can knock out a target that used Endure, but not one wearing a Focus Sash that has full HP.

Future Sight cannot be used on a target multiple times; it must complete before it may be used on a target again. Doom Desire and Future Sight cannot be stacked.

Future Sight will fail if it would hit the Pokémon that used the move.

When Future Sight misses, the miss will not occur until the third turn, and it will say, "It failed."

Generation V

Future Sight's power is changed from 80 to 100, its accuracy from 90% to 100%, and its PP from 15 to 10.

Furthermore, Future Sight now does Psychic-type damage that will take the user's and target's types into account and can therefore receive STAB; this also means that it can no longer hit Dark-type Pokémon under normal circumstances. Future Sight no longer uses the Special Defense stat of the Pokémon initially targeted, but instead the Special Defense of the Pokémon actually hit.

Generation VI

Future Sight's power changed from 100 to 120.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red and Blue Rescue Teams

The user will always inflict 35HP of damage for 3 turns.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky

The user will always deal 30HP damage on any enemies for a set number of turns.

Pokémon Conquest

Future sight targets the back 6 of the 9 spaces in the direction chosen. Upon use, no damage is dealt. At the start of the target's turn two turns after use, they will take Psychic-type damage (the turn after use, the target will be able to take their turn normally, but will take the damage at the start of the following turn, before any moves are made).
