Follow Me (Japanese: このゆびとまれ Stay With This Finger) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Generations III and IV

Follow Me makes the user the center of attention, forcing opposing Pokémon to use its move on the user rather than the intended target (even if it was a friendly target, unless it is a move that cannot target an opponent such as Acupressure or Helping Hand) for the rest of the turn. If a move cannot target the center of attention, it will be used on its intended target. It does not affect allies.

If the center of attention faints or switches out, it no longer draws moves.

Follow Me cannot draw moves with a charging turn like Fly or Solar Beam.

Follow Me draws Electric- and Water-type moves even if a Pokémon with Lightningrod or Storm Drain is on the field. If another Pokémon on the same team is already the center of attention, the first user takes priority; if the first user is outside of range or stops being the center of attention, the attack will be drawn to the next center of attention.

Due to only having a priority of +3, Follow Me cannot divert Pursuit (when used on a switching opponent of the Pokémon using Pursuit) or Snatch. Follow Me has no effect on moves which hit multiple Pokémon in a battle. While it can be used in Single Battles, it has no effect.

Generation V

In Triple Battles, Follow Me will draw the attacks of all opponents in the field, but it can only draw attacks from non-adjacent opponents if they use a move which is able to strike non-adjacent targets.

If the center of attention is taken into the air by Sky Drop, it no longer draws moves.

Due to now being in the same priority bracket, Follow Me can only divert Fake Out if the user of Follow Me would move before the user of Fake Out. Follow Me can divert Snatch if the user has Prankster and would move before the Pokémon using Snatch.

Generation VI onward

Follow Me now has +2 priority.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Follow Me, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.
