Focus Punch is an offensive Fighting-type move.

Focus Punch is a decreased priority move. The user of Focus Punch will start focusing at the beginning of the turn the move is used, then execute the move Focus Punch at a priority of -3, unless it was hit by another Pokémon's damaging move before executing Focus Punch, in which case it will lose its focus and be unable to attack that turn. The user's focus will not be broken if its Substitute is attacked or if it is hit by a Status move.

Its charging message is displayed before any other moves.

The Ability Iron Fist increases the power of Focus Punch by 20%. It is TM01, found on Route 7 by surfing the tide pool north of where Theo is battled.
