Fake Tears

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Dark - 100% 20 0 - Single non-user

Description

Lowers the target's Special Defense by two stages. Pokemon protected by Magic Coat or the ability Magic Bounce are unaffected and instead use this move themselves.

Competitive Use

Fake Tears helps special attackers to break through special walls more easily, and can cause them to switch out, causing them to take entry hazard damage if hazards are present. If a special attacker has access to it Nasty Plot is generally a better option, as Fake Tears must be used repeatedly in order to have the same effect as a single Nasty Plot boost.

Related Moves

Metal Sound is the Steel-type equivalent, although it is less accurate.
