Focus Punch priority?

1 vote

If my Gurdurr uses focus punch and the opponent uses a lower priority move will my focus punch hit first?

Since Focus Punch has a higher priority than Avalanche, Revenge, Dragon Tail, Circle Throw, and Counter, they are unable to break the focus of a Pokémon using Focus Punch. Thus, they, along with Focus Punch itself, are the only six attacks that can strike a Pokémon in the same turn as it successfully uses Focus Punch.

So Focus Punch CAN hit the target the same turn the opponent attacks you
