Why doesn't focus miss have better accuracy?

Well, there's your problem. You're in the Battle Maison, where luck is shifted greatly against you and towards the AI's favour.

It would have been named Focus Hit if it was guaranteed to hit.

You'd think a "blast" would have a large AoE, therefore hard to miss.

Actually... it's called "Fighting Spirit Bullet" in Japanese.

...Yes yes, I know you were just joking, but still.

Anyway... why DOES it have such low accuracy? You'd think that a "Spirit Bullet" would have some decent precision.

Because its distribution is so high meaning it's useful for coverage.

And it's Fighting type...and special so it's good on Special attackers, since:

Aura Sphere is restricted quite a bit and Vacuum

Thus it has crap accuracy to make up for its power and distribution.

Or simply: Because TrollFreak.
