False Surrender (Japanese: どげざつき False Surrender) is a damage-dealing Dark-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the signature move of Morgrem and one of the signature moves of Grimmsnarl.


False Surrender inflicts damage and bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.
