How many Pokémon have this ability

Forewarn is an Ability that was first introduced in Generation IV. Currently, six Pokémon have this Ability.




When a Pokémon with Forewarn is sent out to battle it alerts the user of the opponent's attack with the highest Base Power. If there is a tie in the Pokémon's movepool for the highest Base Power it will randomly select one of the attacks. In a double battle it will only select the highest Base Power attack from one of the opponent's Pokemon.

Any attack without a Base Power is assigned one as follows:

Base Power Attacks
160 Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill and Sheer Cold
120 Counter, Metal Burst and Mirror Coat
80 Crush Grip, Dragon Rage, Endeavor, Flail, Frustration, Grass Knot, Gyro Ball, Hidden Power, Low Kick, Natural Gift, Night Shade, Psywave, Return, Reversal, Seismic Toss, Sonicboom, Trump Card and Wring Out
0 All other attacks without a fixed Base Power

Note that these Base Powers have no implication on the amount of damage done by that attack, they are simply a way Forewarn uses to rank the Base Powers of all of the opponent's attacks.


Forewarn doesn't have an effect in the overworld.
