PF Ability: Focus
Back to list
FocusCategories: Raises Stats
If this Pokémon is inflicted with a status condition(i.e. poison, paralysis, burn and sleep) it will compensate by concentrating more, granting it a *1.5 multiplier to its Special Attack stat. This boost is retained for the duration of the battle as long as the bearer has a status condition, even if they are switched out of battle. The damage multiplier from Focus is lost if the bearer's Ability is changed or if the status condition is cured. This multiplier is not considered a true stat boost, and thus cannot be Baton Passed.
Boosts Sp. Atk if there is a status problem.
