Fake Out (Japanese: ねこだまし Slap Hands) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Fake Out inflicts damage, is an increased priority move, and always makes the target flinch, unless it has the ability Inner Focus. If the target does not use an increased priority move during the round that it is used, Fake Out will go first regardless of the user's or target's speed. If the target also uses a move with an increased priority of +1 during the same round that the user uses Fake Out, the attack order of the users will be determined normally. If the user is put to sleep or frozen during the round that Fake Out is (or attempts to be) used, Fake Out's increased speed priority will not be reset. Subsequently, it will only be reset on the turn after the user wakes up or is defrosted, or if the user switches out.

Although Fake Out's accuracy is 100%, it will fail if not used on the first turn the user is out. Fake Out will hit Pokémon with the Inner Focus ability but will not make them flinch, although they will still take damage.

Trivia

  • Its Japanese name, "Slap Hands", refers to a sumo technique used to confuse foes. It is used primarily by cat Pokémon because the name literally means "cat deception" in Japanese.
