Night Shade vs Foul Play?

So I've finally managed to breed myself up a decent Bold Prankster Sableye, and I'm stuck deciding between Foul Play or Night Shade for it's attacking move. Which one is preferential? Foul Play can be used as a predict when your opponent switches in a Fire type (or something with Flash Fire), and it tends to deal a ton of damage to physical attackers overall. However, Night Shade is a flat 100 damage, or 50 if you do regular passerby battles like I enjoy. If your opponent switches in something Normal typed though, your only option for damage is WoW, which means that Sableye can't do anything against Pyroar with this setup.

Which do you prefer, and why?
