Read topic. I'd like to know because I may start with a Jolteon on one of my teams and I'd like to know if Bite would flinch a starting Mewtwo with a Safeguard up.

L22 Quilava vs. L25 Golbat
Quilava used Safeguard!
Quilava is protected by a veil!
Golbat used Bite.
Quilava flinched!

Safeguard does, however, prevent confusion.

Does that mean if I Safeugard, and the opponent uses Swagger, I'll get the attack bonus without being Confused?

yes. and once your attack is maxed (raised six times), you don't even need the safeguard to avoid swagger's confusion.

swagger's slight drawback is quite severe. i'm surprised so many trainers rely on it to such a great degree.
