If a Pokemon has already used Fake Out to make one target flinch, would another use of Fake Out be able to flinch a different target? I think it might make more flavor sense for it to, but the explicit wording of the description implies that it wouldn't.

That's reasonable enough.

I could swear there was an established precedent here but I can't seem to fish it out. Well, unless something turns up to contradict me: yes, a given Pokémon should be able to successfully Fake Out different targets each time. (The really tricky question here would be whether a Pokémon that has already fallen for a Fake Out before should be able to fall for another from a different Pokémon... hmmmm.)

Does Fake Out still cause a flinch against Pokemon that are immune to the damage? In-game it doesn't, but in ASB I would assume the surprise of the move, not the damage, is what causes the flinch.

Would the Disguise ability take all the hits of a multi hit move, or just the first one?

All the same, a Pokémon immune to damage from Fake Out would have little reason to be startled by what looks like an attack that can't hurt them, so it wouldn't cause a flinch.

At least at the moment, Disguise has a slightly different effect in ASB than it does in the games. That was a bit tricky to establish in a timely fashion, but it's there now.

Can this essentially be treated as an automatic, 10% health Substitute at the start of the battle?

It's similar, but not the exact same -- it lacks most secondary proprieties of Substitutes, like blocking status and being bypassed by sound moves.

Returning to this post of yesteryear, which I don't think was ever officially decided upon...

tbh I'd say it either shouldn't affect the damage at all, or at the last shouldn't go about ~80% restored out of damage dealt... 75% is quite a lot, and going higher than that starts to get pretty crazy.

A Pokemon does not need to be told to use its Weakness Policy, correct?

What items DO require command from the trainer?

Pokémon don't need to be told to use their held item if the conditions for automatic item use have been met.

Using the held item before those conditions are met (as is possible with some Berries), or holding off on using an item when the automatic item use conditions were met and then using that item later, on the other hand, are situations where you'd need to tell your Pokémon to use its item, and in those cases, it'd take an action.

In the absence of other opinions, I think it's reasonable to say that big root affects only attacks that restore 50% or less of the damage dealt. That would mean it doesn't affect attacks like draining kiss or oblivion wing, and doesn't affect leech seed recovery.

Can Sleep Talk call Rest?

I'm thinking Rest would not work if you're already asleep, but would it be a potential (if ineffective) choice in the Sleep Talk pool?

It's fair game in the Games themselves, so I don't see why it wouldn't be here.

Sleep talk can definitely call rest, yeah. In-game it just fails, but I would probably have it work unless the reason the pokémon was asleep was that it was already in the middle of using rest.

Do tournaments give EXP?
More specifically, will the Battle Royal give EXP?

Yes, unless they say otherwise. Generally the only reason they wouldn't is if they involve rental pokémon; in that case, you get the rental at the end of the battle, but it won't have any EXP.

For the Battle Royal, yes, except rental pokémon.

Double post, but can I use an action to pick up and stab someone with, say, a toxic spike to poison them? Or do they poison anyone who touch them, not just the ones that get pricked by the actual spike part?
This is based on the assumption that ASB spikes and toxic spikes look like the in-game art.
thanksies

Yes you can use the action to do something like that. Whether toxic spikes work that way, probably ask the ref.
