Inner Focus is a Pokémon ability introduced in Third Pokémon Generation. It makes the Pokémon with that ability immune to flinching.


Inner Focus prevents the Pokémon from flinching unless the opposing Pokémon has Mold BreakerTeravolt or Turboblaze as its ability.

When its effect activates, the quote "<Pokémon> won't flinch because of its Inner Focus!" will appear.

  • Although Focus Punch says it fails due to the user flinching, Inner Focus doesn't prevent its failure.
