Fake Out is an offensive Normal-type move. It has increased priority and always makes the target flinch unless the target has Inner Focus or Shield Dust. However, Fake Out fails unless it is used on the first the user enters the battle. The Ability Acceleration increases the power of Fake Out by 50%.
