Umbreon can learn Sychronoise, which is Psychic-type. Synchronoise damages Pokemon of the same type as the user, but Dark Pokemon are immune to Psychic moves. If an Umbreon uses Synchronoise on a Dark Pokemon, will it hit?

Synchronoise will fail if used by Umbreon onto a Dark-type.

So why would Umbreon learn Synchronoise if it can never hit any Pokemon with it?
Game Freak Logic, my friend.
it only learns it as an egg move.  eevee has seven other evolutions that it can turn into that can use it.
