    Please do not post here unless you are a Council Member or Deck Knight. Anyone else who posts here WILL be infracted. Thank you.

    Fake Out - Demonstratably broken, or just unprepared for? Councilmembers will decide this now!

    Old Fake Out:
    [box]Fake Out: The Pokémon strikes the opponent with immense swiftness using their hands/paws, creating a shockwave of air that pushes the opponent back, causing them to flinch. In Switch=KO, Fake Out fails to flinch the same Pokemon twice after its initial use, even if resetting effects like Circle Throw, Dragon Tail, Roar, U-turn, Teleport, Volt Switch, or Whirlwind used by it or against it, but can still be used in succession. In Switch=OK, Fake Out may flinch each opponent one time, but will not flinch the same target again unless both the user and initial target have switched out between uses. Fake Out is the fastest priority attack, beating out even ExtremeSpeed.

    Attack Power: 4 | Accuracy: 100% | Energy Cost: 4 | Attack Type: Physical | Effect Chance: -- | Contact: Yes | Typing: Normal | Priority: 3 | CT: Set[/box]

    New Fake Out:
    [box]Fake Out: The Pokémon strikes the opponent with immense swiftness using their hands/paws, creating a shockwave of air that pushes the opponent back, causing them to flinch. In Switch=KO, Fake Out only flinches on the Pokémon's first use of the move, even if resetting effects like Circle Throw, Dragon Tail, Roar, U-turn, Teleport, Volt Switch, or Whirlwind used by it or against it. In Switch=OK, Fake Out may only flinch if the Pokémon using the move hasn't used it since it was last sent out. Fake Out can still damage opponents after its first use since the Pokémon was sent out; it simply cannot flinch them. Fake Out is the fastest priority attack, beating out even ExtremeSpeed.

    Attack Power: 4 | Accuracy: 100% | Energy Cost: 4 | Attack Type: Physical | Effect Chance: -- | Contact: Yes | Typing: Normal | Priority: 3 | CT: Set[/box]

    I will point out now that, contrary to what Its_A_Random said in #capasb, there is precedent for applying fixes to broken stuff to both new and current battles: both of the fixes in this post as well as the fix in this post. This does not even include the earlier changes where it doesn't say whether or not.

    Anyway, Implement new Fake Out
