Odor Sleuth is a move introduced in Generation III that enables a Pokémon to hit a Ghost Pokémon or an evasive foe with any move. It is similar to Lock-On, Mind Reader, and Foresight and is a normal type move. However, Lock-On and Mind Reader only make an automatic hit, they don't let ghost types by hit by them.
