Why did it affect my Tyranitar if it was Psychic Type? Agent 448Talk | DP 02:51, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure it doesn't take type into account. I remember using it on a Fighting-type to no super-effectiveness.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 03:20, 13 October 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, it and Doom Desire are calculated differently. TTEchidna 05:30, 13 October 2007 (UTC)
The in-game data may have a Power, but I think that is calculated differently as well. When I was capturing Azelf, I used a level 23 Kricketune. Each time I tried, Azelf used this attack and each time it hit Kricketune it took off different amounts each time. Sometimes Kricketune would faint, sometimes it would only take off a little.

Did it use Nasty Plot? --PLA 12:36, 19 May 2010 (UTC)


So, Future Sight do not take type into account. What about STAB? Tenno Seremel 09:30, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Nope. Because it is technically typeless, it does not get STAB, hits all Pokémon and bypasses Wonder Guard. — THE TROM — 09:40, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Thought so. I didn't know about Wonder Guard though. I'll need to check this. Thanks. Tenno Seremel 11:56, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Focus Sash

Focus Sash in the “In-battle effect item” description says otherwise:

Can also protect against multiple-strike moves such as Fury Attack and Triple Kick, recoil damage, and self-inflicted confusion damage, but not Future Sight and Doom Desire.

Which one is correct?

Tenno Seremel 07:19, 18 May 2009 (UTC)


Because it is technically typeless, does it take items like Twistedspoon into account? It shouldn't... FrozenStrategy 23:08, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Psychic type.

As it's no longer typeless, can it still hit through Wonder Guard? I suppose it will also be resisted by Psychic, Steel and Dark now. PLA 12:54, 13 January 2011 (UTC)


Can someone add Melodi's Kirlia to the anime list please?Emeraldben 12:17, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

I added it. LimeGreenCharizard 13:03, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
Apparently its not actually Future Sight, so both pages have been changed accordingly. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 13:18, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
  • She does actually say use future sight though dont she?Emeraldben 21:19, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
No, it just looks into the future using its Psychic powers, but it isn't Future sight. Littlmiget123 14:40, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Fails if User Faints?

I've noticed that when my Swoobat faints after having used Future Sight (but before the actual attack hits) that Future Sight doesn't seem to connect to the target Pokémon. Is this normal or a change made in Gen 5? -Yourlilemogirl 05:40, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Shell Bell

How does Future Sight interact with Shell Bell, if at all? - unsigned comment from Krychek (talkcontribs)

Accuracy and Evasion

I got asked by a friend, and didn't know the answer (nor was it on the site): how do Accuracy and Evasion work for this move? Is it the same as Sp Atk/Def? (Is this a detail worth adding, if someone knows?) Fix my stuff if it needs it, I don't have much editing XP. (talk) 21:25, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

According to UPC, accuracy check is done when this attack lands (with the values at that point in time), in every generation. I wouldn't oppose that being added. Nescientist (talk) 17:11, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
