Duplicate of the breeding section to learn this move. Erased for redundancy.

It's not redundant. That's for Gen IV. TTEchidna 05:55, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

The Japanese Reference

Is it worth noting that the Gen. III games emphasize the "Blunt Strike" reference? I was thinking this:

The fact of False Swipe's Japanese name, "Blunt Strike", being a reference to striking with the blunt side of a sword is emphasized in the Generation III games. This is because the "slash" mark appears, then moves to the side.

This atack would not work with Shedinja... - unsigned comment from Ferreronis (talkcontribs)

Yes. And? Werdnae (talk) 00:57, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

What with the Manga section.

I don't think the picture on the manga section is what should be their I would do something but I don't no much about the templates used on this site. - unsigned comment from Ovidkid (talkcontribs)

That's what happens when people don't check what uses the image before uploading a new version. Fixed now. Werdnae (talk) 04:52, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Anime error

This move was used in the Amine only once and it was like "Finish it up with Fasle Swipe!" '-' - unsigned comment from Dominikololo (talkcontribs)

Yes, this has been noted on the episode page where the error occurred. --Pokemaster97 17:48, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

False Swipe (Z-Move)

Don't know it this is a glitch or supposed to happen but I notice False Swipe, if used as a Z-move, was not a restrained attack. So I added; "If used as a Z-move, False Swipe can leave the target with less than 1 HP thus causing it to faint." - unsigned comment from Squarefist (talkcontribs)

Status Z-Moves are the only ones that keep the same or similar effects to the base move. All damaging Z-Moves don't take into consideration the base move's effects whatsoever (besides type and base power). Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 00:36, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
What Pumpkinking said is why I reverted that edit. Breakneck Blitz and False Swipe are two different moves--you shouldn't expect them to have the same effect. --Felthry (F.K.A. Xolroc) (talk) 00:43, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Can False Swipe get STAB?

Just wondering, cause it would be pretty much useless anyways. PickleTyphlosion (talk) 17:25, 15 January 2018 (UTC) PickleTyphlosion

Yes. Why wouldn't it? Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 17:31, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
