Anticipation (きけんよち Danger Premonition) is an ability introduced in Generation IV.


A Pokémon with this ability will shudder upon being in battle against a Pokémon with any one-hit KO moves and/or super effective moves.

In Generation IV, the move is not triggered by Counter, Metal Burst or Mirror Coat, but beginning with Generation V, those three moves are counted as move triggers too.
