This attack hits a target using a move such as Protect or Detect. This also lifts the effects of those moves.


Feint inflicts damage but only strikes a target that has used Protect or Detect during that turn, lifting the effects of Protect or Detect for the remainder of the turn. Feint cannot remove the effects of protecting moves if it does not affect the target (such as if the target is Ghost-type).
