Flinching is a volatile status condition that causes the opponent Pokemon to be unable to move that turn, when they are flinched by certain attacks. For this to work the user of the flinching move needs to be faster than the opposing Pokemon (of course not including priority).

In Generation VI any move used by a Pokemon holding the Razor Fang or King's Rock will have a 10% chance to flinch, if the move doesn't already have a flinch chance. This changed a little in earlier Generations, though.

The chance of flinching listed below is doubled if the user has Serene Grace. So, for example, Togekiss and Jirachi have a 60% chance of flinching with Air Slash and Iron Head, respectively.

Interestingly, when doing this I found that the only types without at least one flinching move are Poison, Ground, and Fairy.
Isn't Bone Club a Ground type move?
Good point - apparently it is a very forgettable Ground type move.,,
