Lets say it is a Rotation battle, and my 3 Pokemon know fake out. Turn 1: Fake out. Turn 2: Rotate and fake out Turn 3: Rotate to the 3rd Pokemon and make it use fake out. Will it let all 3 use fake out? Even better, can I do an infinate Rotate-Fake out cycle?

No. Rotation battles don't work that way.

E.g., you have 3 Pokemon with Fake Out, Mienshao, Weavile & Hitmontop.

So Mienshao uses Fake Out, and of course Hitmontop & Weavile don't do anything. When Mienshao moves, that still counts as Weavile & Hitmontop's first move, as it's the first move of the whole battle, and therefore Fake Out won't work after one your Pokemon moves, regardless of which one.

I'm pretty sure that game freak is smart enough to make that simple strategy fail.
