| When it enters a battle, the Pokémon can tell one of the moves an opposing Pokémon has.
Forewarn (Japanese: よちむ Prophetic Dream) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. All Pokémon that have this Ability are Psychic types.
Forewarn shows the opponent's move with the highest power. If two or more moves are of the same power, one will be chosen at random.
In a Double or Triple Battle, Forewarn will only show the highest power move out of all the moves known by the opponents. If two or three opponents have a move with the same power, one will be chosen at random. Forewarn will reveal a move of a non-adjacent opponent even if the move wouldn't be able to hit the Pokémon with Forewarn (due to not being able to hit a non-adjacent Pokémon).
Damaging moves without a power (i.e. moves that deal direct damage and moves that have variable power) are assigned one.
