Faint Attack

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Dark 60 - 20 0 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and ignores all accuracy and evasion modifiers.

Competitive Use

Faint Attack is for the most part outclassed by Crunch and Night Slash due to the existence of the Evasion Clause. It is stronger than both moves if the user's ability is Technician, however.
