Is it possible for Focus Band to save you from self-inflicted moves such as recoil from Struggle, Double-Edge, etc. or Self-Destruct/Explosion? And how about Poison and Burn damage?

May death embrace you with her scythe and eternal darkness reign triumphant.

I am pretty sure I am right. You can not get saved from recoils, burns, etc but you can get saved from Self Destruct and Explosion (I think they use the Focus Band Explosion combo in PS2)

When I was fighting someone, I'm pretty sure one of his pokemon got saved from explosion.
