Feint bypasses protect and detect.

It doesn't. Only the move Feint does.

My Noivern wishes it did though. :(

Donnel is my # 1 bro. We fist bump, slay some risen, eat some chicken strips, bomb the Valmese and steal sugar from Gaius on a daily basis. Like a Boss. FE:A

Feint bypasses them. So does Phantom Force.

Lost Kingdoms II was arguably the greatest game of its decade, I say.

Shadow Force and its poor man's variant, Phantom Force, also bypass protect.

According to bulbapedia Infiltrator doesn't say anything about protect.

Actually, everyone in this topic is wrong. Protect is a +4 priority move while feint is +2.

The only damaging moves that can hurt against protect is an already charged focus punch and pursuit.
