In showdown, I was battling a Yveltal with a Feraligatr. I used Aqua Jet, which is priority, but when he used Sucker Punch, it failed. Can anyone tell me why?

If the target uses a non-damaging move or happens to act before the user, Sucker Punch will fail.

If two Pokemon both use priority moves, then the faster one will go first. In this case, you were faster, so your Aqua Jet went first, causing Sucker Punch to fail.
