Effect

Dire Hit replicates the effect of the move Focus Energy, which itself has changed through the generations. It does not stack with Focus Energy or other Dire Hits.

Generation I

When used on a Pokémon from the Bag during battle, the Pokémon's chance of getting a critical hit is reduced by 75% (due to a glitch) while it is in battle.

Generation II

When used on a Pokémon from the Bag during battle, it raises that Pokémon's critical hit ratio by 1 stage while it is in battle. It also increases the Pokémon's friendship a little.

This improves the default critical hit odds from 17/256 to 1/8.

Generation III onward

When used on a Pokémon from the Bag during battle, it raises that Pokémon's critical hit ratio by 2 stages while it is in battle. It also increases the Pokémon's friendship a little.

This improves the default critical hit odds from 1/16 to 1/4 (Gen. III-V), from 1/16 to 1/2 (Gen. VI), or from 1/24 to 1/2 (Gen. VII+).

Wonder Launcher

Bag Dire Hit WL Sprite.png Bag Dire Hit 2 Sprite.png Bag Dire Hit 3 Sprite.png The Dire Hit appears as three Wonder Launcher items, increasing the critical hit ratio by 1, 2, or 3 stages. It costs 3, 5, or 7 points to use respectively.

Trivia

  • In Generation V, a boy in Nacrene City mentions that Dire Hit is called Dire Hit in Unova. This is a reference to the change in the Japanese name of Dire Hit from クリティカッター Criticutter to クリティカット Criticut, in order to make room for the number-level reference of Wonder Launcher items. Because "Dire Hit" is much shorter than the 12-character limit on English item names, this issue does not come up in the translated games.
