I was just wondering if anyone had come up with a good use for Future Sight. I was going through a list of Psychic attacks and it wasn't too bad (although 90 Acc with only 80 Pow sucks). I just couldn't figure out a usefulness for the 2 turn wait on the attack.

Well, in Japan, Future Sight and Fly are basically standard on Lugia. I wish that Articuno would learn Future Sight to go with Double Team, Rest, and Sky Attack.

The only Pokémon that I'm actively using with Future Sight right now is Mewtwo. Mewtwo and Alakazam can learn Future Sight, Skull Bash, and Recover, plus Mewtwo can learn Amnesia.

The routine is simple:
Safeguard //Lugia
Future Sight //All
Fly/Skull Bash //Lugia/Alakazam; Mewtwo
Recover //All

On Alakazam and Mewtwo, their Defense Stat is raised by Skull Bash, then Skull Bash and Future Sight hit for an effectively 180 Attack Power hit. Additionally, Mewtwo can raise its Special Defense with Amnesia.
Another possibility could be Slowbro/king with Future Sight, Skull Bash, and Amnesia.

There aren't many good trainers around here for me to try the Mewtwo out against, especially with the Leagues at Toys'R'Us stopped until January. I guess that my Mewtwo'll get its first taste of battle against a good trainer at the STS in December.

I'm currently playing with an Alakazam that uses Psychic, Future Sight, Encore and Recover. Though it's only 80 power, it ignores type, only gaining STAB. So, it'd be a 120 power attack even on Darks, but also Fighting and Poison.

The whole point is to effectively almost double the damage you do on that one turn when Future Sight hits. Encore provokes switches easily, allowing for Future Sight to be used appropriately. This would allow you to get an advantage over something that uses Recover.

However, I'm reconsidering this tactic after finding out you can only have one Future Sight up at a time. If Alakazam could use three Future Sights and then three Psychics, it'd clean out a third of a team.

The Skull Bash tactic is interesting, too. I've been wondering if the Defence raise was a permanent stat mod.

Uiru, are you SURE Future Sight gets STAB? I thought I heard it didn't. But, it would only make sense that it would. I mean, it does go thru the damage formula, it would be dumb if it didn't...

I don't know if Alakazam can learn ALL 3 Elemental Punches, but if he can, an Ice Punch, Fire Punch, Thunder Punch, Future Sight could work out.

Humm... I've a few questions..

1- Can Protect work against an attack & Future Sight, protecting you against all damage that turn?

2- Meowth, you said Future Sight is commom on Japan. Where did you see this? I want to know more sites about pokémon

No matter which player is faster, Future Sight always ignores Protect.

2- Meowth, you said Future Sight is commom on Japan. Where did you see this? I want to know more sites about pokémon :)
How much Japanese do you know? I actually have a couple friend in Japan who help keep me up to date on what's going on, and lemme' know all of the popular movesets, etc. that they're seeing from different Trainer across Japan. Then, there are always Japanese Pocket Monsters forums here and there, which are often filled with teams that they ask for advice on.
http://www.excite.co.jp is always a nice place to start.

Do any of these people type in Broken English or will I be forced to flex my meager Nihongo skills?

Almost every Japanese Pokémon website includes English. It's near the top, and reads something like, "This site is Japanese language only." ^_^

Just an update to anyone who may have use the "Search" to find any research on Future Sight... it does NOT gain STAB as proven here, and thanks for using "Forum Search"
