Let me explain. If I switch in a steadfast Scyther to a Fake Out, will it activate?

Steadfast only happens if you try to make a move, which you don't do if you switch in. So it doesn't activate and you don't get the boost.

Sorry for getting it confused with Inner focus earlier. I always get the two muddled up.

Steadfast means you flinch, but get a speed boost. It doesn't prevent the flinching. Inner focus prevents flinching.

The move will hit after you switch in. You have moved first, so the flinch won't happen, and Scizor won't get the boost. Sorry.

Scizor? When did he say Scizor?
He probably confused Scyther with Scizor.
