I'm shiny hunting for an Absol right now and one of them had the move Feint. This website says that it only hits if the other Pokemon had used Protect or Detect. My Glaceon used Ice Beam but Feint still hit! Could I get some clarification on this move?

This is for Generation 8.

Feint can now inflict damage even if the target has not used Protect or Detect, and its power has changed from 50 to 30.

The page for Feint hasn't been fixed yet.

Feint can now inflict damage even if the target has not used Protect or Detect, and its power has changed from 50 to 30.

So, since Gen 5, Feint was able to hit targets that hadn't used Protect or Detect, so that is why it hit you.
