Feint Attack 20 60 -- The user approaches the target disarmingly, then throws a sucker punch. This attack never misses.
Flatter 15 -- 100 Flattery is used to confuse the target. However, this also raises the target's Sp. Atk stat.
Fling 10 -- 100 The user flings its held item at the target to attack. This move's power and effects depend on the item.
Foul Play 15 95 100 The user turns the target's power against it. The higher the target's Attack stat, the greater the move's power.

Memento 10 -- 100 The user faints when using this move. In return, this harshly lowers the target's Attack and Sp. Atk stats.

Payback 10 50 100 The user stores power, then attacks. If the user moves after the target, this attack's power will be doubled.
Power Trip 10 20 100 The user boasts its strength and attacks the target. The more the user's stats are raised, the greater the move's power.
Punishment 5 -- 100 The more the target has powered up with stat changes, the greater the move's power.

Quash 15 -- 100 The user suppresses the target and makes its move go last.

Taunt 20 -- 100 The target is taunted into a rage that allows it to use only attack moves for three turns.

Topsy-Turvy 20 -- -- All stat changes affecting the target turn topsy-turvy and become the opposite of what they were.
