What Gives?

I had a Meowth that used Fake Out on Dustox in Pearl, but Dustox didn't flinch. Why do you think that this happened? - unsigned comment from Nidolord500 (talkcontribs)

Did it use it just after it came out (the Meowth, that is)? TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 05:55, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Dustox's ability prevents any added effects from attack moves. Flinching is an added affect, so Dustox's ability negated it. - unsigned comment from Editor Sam (talkcontribs)

Maylene's Hitmontop

Umm when you verse Maylene in the Battleground her Hitmontop always uses fake out. Yet, according to this page Hitmontop can't learn it as he mentioned at all. What gives? @[email protected] - unsigned comment from Idiot (talkcontribs)

Hitmontop don't have it as part of their personal moveset, but Tyrogue learns it at the start. This means that Hitmontop can know it, but only if kept from the Tyrogue stage. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 06:55, 8 February 2010 (UTC)


As of Generation V, Fake Out has the highest priority of any damage-inflicting move; it can even strike before Protect or Detect, if the user is faster than their opponent. --Stratelier 02:17, 13 May 2011 (UTC)


I'm pretty sure Smoochum can learn this move by breeding a Jynx with an Hitmonlee (and I believe with the other Hitmos too), but this isn't in the article. --SamuStar 21:29, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Did you actually test that out to see if it really is true? Just wondering. I am a talking Scrafty! Talk to me! 21:32, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes, in Pokémon Black, I bred a Jynx with Hitmonlee (with this move) and the Smoochum born knew the moves Pound and Fake Out. I can try again if needed --SamuStar 21:39, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Well, if you tried it out and it worked, then that information should be put on the page itself! I am a talking Scrafty! Talk to me! 21:40, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

I don't know how to add this, can somebody hepl? - unsigned comment from SamuStar (talkcontribs)
