Fake Out is a damage-dealing Normal-type move.


Fake Out inflicts damage and always makes the target flinch, unless it has the Ability Inner Focus or Shield Dust. It will fail if used after the first turn.


This attack hits first and makes the target flinch. It only works the first turn the user is in battle.
