Focus Punch (Japanese: きあいパンチ Fighting Spirit Punch) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation III. It was TM01 in Generation III and Generation IV.

Effect

Generation III

Focus Punch is a decreased priority move. The user of Focus Punch will start focusing at the beginning of the turn the move is used, then execute the move Focus Punch at a priority of -3, unless it was hit by another Pokémon's damaging move before executing Focus Punch, in which case it will lose its focus and be unable to attack that turn. The user's focus will not be broken if its substitute is attacked or if it is hit by a status move.

Its charging message is displayed before any other moves.

PP is consumed even if the user loses its focus and fails to execute the move. Even if the user loses focus, it is considered the last move used (for the purposes of Encore, etc.).

If a Pokémon becomes locked into Focus Punch by Encore but selected a different move that turn and hasn't already moved, it will use Focus Punch at the priority of the move it selected, but the charging message does not appear and it will still lose its focus if it took damage from an attack that turn.

Focus Punch can be used as the second move of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining 3 bonus appeal points if Focus Energy was used in the previous turn.

If Focus Punch is known by a wild Pokémon (via Transform, Mimic, or challenging the Battle Frontier), and the player unsuccessfully attempts to flee the battle while the opposing Pokémon has selected Focus Punch for use during the turn, the move will be executed immediately without the charging animation or message.

Generation IV

If the user is hit before the attack, it will say, "<Pokémon> used Focus Punch!" before it says the "<Pokémon> lost its focus and couldn't move!". Wild Pokémon executing this move while the player unsuccessfully attempts to flee will always display the charge-up animation before executing the move.

Generation V onwards

It no longer states "<Pokémon> used Focus Punch!" preceding "<Pokémon> lost its focus and couldn't move!"

PP is no longer consumed if the user loses its focus and fails to execute the move. If the user loses focus, it is ignored when determining the last move used (for the purposes of Encore, etc.).

If a Pokémon becomes locked into Focus Punch by Encore but selected a different move that turn and hasn't already moved, it will use Focus Punch at the priority of the move it selected regardless of whether it took damage that turn, and the charging message will not appear.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Focus Punch is a move with 20 base power, 100% accuracy, and 10 PP. Unlike in main series, in Mystery Dungeon the move is similar to moves like Sky Attack or Dig where the user waits on first turn and then attacks in the second, regardless of whether they got hit. This attack hits enemy in the front; this move's damage is doubled at the end of damage calculation. Due to now being a two-turn move, this move cannot be linked.

In Explorers of Time and Darkness, the move's PP is decreased to 8.

In Explorers of Sky, the move's power is raised to 55.

Trivia

  • Focus Punch is tied with Meteor Assault for having the highest base power of all Fighting-type moves, excluding Z-Moves and Reversal at its full power.
    • An All-Out Pummeling based on Focus Punch is tied with Reversal at its full power for the highest base power of all Fighting-type moves.
  • Since Focus Punch has a higher priority than Avalanche, Revenge, Counter, Dragon Tail, or Circle Throw, they are unable to break the focus of a Pokémon using Focus Punch. Thus, they and Focus Punch itself are the only attacks that can strike a Pokémon in the same turn it successfully uses Focus Punch, without the use of Quash or After You.
  • In Generation III, a glitch will cause the user of Focus Punch to prepare to use it, but not execute the attack. This glitch is triggered by selecting Focus Punch in a Double Battle on the first Pokémon, pressing the “B” button, then switching out the first Pokémon. When the battle is conducted, the first Pokémon will tighten its focus in preparation for Focus Punch, then switch out. This is due to charging turn having a priority of +8, and therefore being executed before switch out.
  • Shroomish and Togekiss are able to learn Focus Punch, despite lacking any visible hands to use the move.
