Difference between an attack that's been avoided and an attack that misses?

Is there a difference? Sometimes my 90 hit chance razor leaf attack says it misses and sometimes it says avoided...

And no. This time the opponent did not use any moves that increases evasiveness.

When it's been avoided, the target pokemon moved out of the way.

When it missed, your pokemon's aim is s///.

Snowflame is greatest comic villain ever made. Shame on DC for letting him fade into obscurity.

In what game is that?

IIRC, since Gen V, all instances of "[Pokémon]'s attack missed" have been changed to "Foe's [Pokémon] avoided the attack."

I don't think so... I haven't played much recently, ut I dont remember it.

Anyway, IIRC, "Foe's*Pokemon* avoided the attack" refers to in double battles, where a move like Razor Leaf can hit both opponents, but manages to hit one.

At least, I think that's how it works.

Pretend That there's a signature here.

Diamond version. I'm pretty sure I've also seen it pop up for HG from time to time.

When an attack is avoided, it's actually the trainer using the "DODGE IT!" move from the anime.

Imagine if that is a new feature for X and Y through the use of the 3DS microphones. Battles have been taken to a whole new level!
