So the most obvious change is that it's no longer CPA, but CAP instead. Another thing is, I noticed most of us aren't sure whether to continue sleep/confusion count when a Pokemon flinches. Some say yes, some say no. But going by the Veto Tier, it shows that a sleeping Pokemon cannot be flinched in the first place. And since it says once a move is vetoed from being executed, no other checks are performed. I believe this means that confusion count stays the same, and shouldn't increase.

Just to be sure about the flinch, I tested on Shoddy with Togekiss and Blissey. Togekiss has a 60% chance of flinching with Air Slash. To make it accurate, I tested like 10 turns of sleep with flinches, but nothing happened. It was only when Blissey woke up, then flinch happened. Soooooooooooo, I dare say that there are no chances of flinching when asleep.
So where does that leave encore?
