Anticipation

Generation 4

Summary

Notifies all trainers upon entering battle if an opponent has a super-effective move, Self-Destruct, Explosion, or a one-hit KO move.

Effect

When this Pokémon enters battle, if one of its opponents has a move that is super effective against it, Self-Destruct, Explosion, or a one-hit knockout move, all participating trainers are notified.

The move itself is not revealed; only that there is such a move. Moves that inflict typeless damage, such as Future Sight, and moves of variable type, such as Hidden Power, count as their listed types. Counter, Metal Burst, Mirror Coat, and one-hit KO moves to which this Pokémon is immune do not trigger this ability.
