Inner Focus is an Ability introduced in Generation III.

Inner Focus
Flavor text
The Pokémon is protected from flinching.


In battle

Inner Focus prevents the Pokémon from flinching. However, Pokémon with this Ability can still flinch to a Pokémon with Mold Breaker.

While some descriptions state that the user flinches, Focus Punch failing due to taking damage is not flinching, so the move is unaffected by Inner Focus.

Outside of battle

Inner Focus has no effect outside of battle.
