Anticipation (ability)

Effect

A Pokémon with Anticipation will shudder upon entering battle, if an opponent has a move that is super-effective against it, or a One-Hit-KO move (Fissure, Horn Drill, Guillotine or Sheer Cold). It only activates when the ability-bearer switches in, not when an opponent switches in.

Anticipation does not activate if the opponent has a move that varies in type, such as Hidden Power, Judgment or Weather Ball, even if those moves would be super-effective.
