5 focus blast misses, and one good switch by my opponent. Ah well.

Focus Miss

The user focuses its energy to miss its target. Occasionally accidentally hits the target for great damage.

It is amusing that a move with the word focus in it, has horrible accuracy.

You focus too much on making the attack flashy and don't notice your opponent moved maybe? :P

5 focus blast misses

Technically, 2 of them weren't misses so much as they were used on a Ghost-type...

Right. 4 focus blast misses (i already acknowledged the first ghost switch in) It's still a lot. In my next match, it missed twice out of two as well. So, I'm 0/6 today, not counting the ghost switch ins.

If there was ever a case for better Special Fighting-type moves, Focus Blast is it.
