Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Can you raise your critical-hit ratio in battle without items or specific moves?

I believe there's a few abilities but I can't think of them and I didn't know if you can raise it without using moves specially for raising it (for example, moves like Focus Energy).

You can alter critical hit ratio in the following ways:

  • Ability:Pokemon with the ability super luck have heightened critical hit ratios. It should also be noted that while sniper does not raise the chance for a CH, it does make your attacks even stronger (triple) when it happens.
  • Using the move Focus energy, as you stated, will raise CH chance.
  • A pokemon holding a Lansat Berry, Razor Claw, Scope Lens, Lucky Punch (Chansey Only), or a Stick (Farfetch'd Only). The last two raise the Critical hit chance by two stages.
  • Using the moves Aeroblast, Air Cuter, Attack order, Crabhammer, Cross Chop, Cross Poison, Drill Run, Leaf Blade, Night Slash, Psycho Cut, Razor Leaf, Shadow Claw, Slash, Spacial Rend, or Stone edge will raise your odds.
  • Using the move Frost Breath or Storm throw will always result in a critical hit, barring of course, some negating ability.
  • Using the item "Dire Hit" will also increase it.
