Could someone explain to me the uses or strategies for using Future Sight? To me, it seems like it's the same as Psychic, but you have to wait 2 moves to have it attack. Yeah, it hits Dark types, but by the time your Future Sight hits your Psychic is already dead... Is there any real use for this move, or is it a throw-away?

In that case, use Reflect immediately before using Future Sight.

FYI, I do think Future Sight hits, even if you switch out the pokemon. I'm not sure about if you KO the psychic type. But, Future Sight hit one of my pokes after it switched to another, in Stadium 2.

Here is how I see it. If an opponent keeps recovering off hits, you use Furture Sight and just keep attacking. On the third turn you will deal your attack damage and Future Sight damage. Do you get what I'm saying? It's just a lot of damage on a single turn.

Yeah, Biffter's explanation is the only use that I had thought of. I can't think of many situations where it would be that useful, though.

Future Sight can hit Dark types; does it ignore the super-effective/not-very-effective stuff too? Do Psychic types get STAB with it? If you switch after using it and before it hits, is the based on the Special Attack of the user or the guy who is out now, and how does STAB work in this situation?

"damage is calculated from the original user's stats, regardless of which pokémon is currently out. does not recognize victim's type. until the current use of future sight has had a chance to hit the target, all subsequent uses will fail."

of course, the entry needs to be updated to point out that it does NOT get stab.

Yeah, that's about it. It's like Splash, it just doesn't much of a use.

Weeeell, there's the old Lugia Future Sight moveset...

Safeguard
Future Sight
Fly
Recover
>> Item

Use Safeguard, use Future Sight, use Fly, then Recover. Lather, Rinse, Repeat. Safeguard lasts until just after Recover. Future Sight and Fly hit simultaniously. It's able to do quite a bit of damage and remain a force to be reconned with.

The advantages of Future Sight are many-fold.

1) It does neutral damage to ALL types.
2) I believe it gets STAB.
3) It goes into effect even if the Pokemon switches out.
4) It goes into effect even if the Pokemon faints.

An additional usage of Future Sight is pure spite. Think you Kazam's gonna faint in the next turn? Future sight, sacrifice Kazam, and leave your opponent a going away present from Kazam.

Confuse Ray, Future Sight, Fly. Psychic/Night Shade as an alternate attack. If you're lucky, you'll get in 3 attacks in 1 turn.

YYYYYYYYIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Someone other than me likes this 'set . heh

FS is mostly only good in case you're against that odd Starmie who keeps recovering your attacks away. Simply use a *insert strong attack here* and when future sight hits, it also does that damage.

However, other than that, it's not much use.

This is just a joke, the following joke does not necessarily represent the personal opinions of MK & MK Inc.

Well, if you count all the attacks in Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal, there's 251. The same # as Pokemon. Nintendo ran out of good ideas & one dummy there is like, hey, I know, let's make a move that's exactly like Psychic, has a lower accuracy, and takes 3 turns before it does anything! Make Lugia learn it at a high level and the kids will think it's worth something, whahahaha!

Future Sight is a pain in the ass if timed correctly.

Set up the future sight, and attack relentlessly. Get the opponent to a point where their Pokemon's HP is at like 10-15%. Then BAM, Future Sight hits and finishes the Pokemon off.

I'm not sure about this, but I think it cuts through evasion. Even when a Pokemon is DT'd 6 times, Future Sight tends to hit more often than not.

True true. But, I'd still be hesitant to leave it on a Lugia. But then again, I'm hesitant to use my Lv 100 Lugia anyway! I'd rather win with others. Sure Lugia's tough, but there's something about it I don't like or something. Maybe it's cause every Newbie has one on his team. But, not all people who use Lugia are newbies, but, all newbies use Lugia, correct?

I use stuff like sharked max stats Lugias and I am not a newbie because I have been playing pokemon since the begining back in Fall '98! I even have a regular level 53 blastoise that has a blue version moveset and it dominates all of the poke cups and many of the gyms in both stadiums. It doesn't need a GS moveset to win! Once I find the scope lens, I will do better.
