Say I'm playing a hypothetical Doubles match.

Opponent's Pokémon:
My Pokémon:

Heatran uses Heat Wave, and Aegislash blocks it with Wide Guard. But I anticipate this and use Feint with Sableye. However, Feint will not affect Aegislash because it is a Ghost-type. So I use Feint on Dustox instead.

Will Feint break Wide Guard, even if I do not target the Wide Guard user?

Feint and Shadow Force lift the effect of Wide Guard when successfully
used on an opponent's team.

And as of Gen 6

Feint and Shadow Force now lift the effect of Wide Guard from all allies, if they hit an ally.

Here's bulbapedia's link.

There you go dude, hope this helps!

Sorry Mew, I didn't know you were planning on answering this too.
Let me know if I need to erase my answer, since we both give the same info in the end!
Nah, no need, its not your fault that you answered at the same time :)
