Flavor Text

The user reacts to the target's movement and strikes with the heel of its palm, making the target flinch. This move fails if the target is not readying a priority move.


If the target has selected a physical- or special-category move with a priority of +1 to +3 and has not yet executed that move this turn, this move will strike first and cause the target to flinch. Otherwise, this move fails.
