Pokemon with this ability All abilities Comments


In battle

Forewarn shows the opponent’s move with the highest base power. If two or more moves are of the same base Power, one will be chosen at random.

In a Double Battle, Forewarn will only show the highest base power move out of the two opponents. If both opponents have a move with the same base power, one will be chosen at random.

Moves without a base power that can cause damage are assigned one.
