Feint is an offensive Normal-type move.
As of 1.0.4, it can be taught by the
Physical Move Tutor of Tsukinami Village Hotel for four Red Shards. In 1.0.3, it could be taught by the Ultimate Move Tutor in Tsukinami Village at a cost of four of each shard. Prior to 1.0.3, it was available for free from an old man in Nowtoch City, provided you have 4 gym badges.
Effect Protection Moves (with the exception of Mat Block which is currently bugged) are ignored by Feint and removes that protection for the rest of the turn. The user of Feint does not suffer the negative effects of its target's Spiky Shield.
Acceleration increases the power of Feint by 50%.
