From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
False Swipe is a Normal-type move introduced in Generation II that deals a small amount of damage. Its Japanese name refers to striking someone with the blunt side of a sword.
If False Swipe does more damage than the opponent's remaining HP, the opponent will always end up with 1 HP left.
If the opponent has 1 HP remaining, False Swipe will miss.
