Magnet Pull (Japanese: じりょく Magnetism) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.

Contents

Effect

In battle

Generation III to V

Magnet Pull prevents adjacent Steel-type opponents from fleeing (including Teleport) or switching out as long as the user remains in battle.

Using Baton Pass, U-turn, Volt Switch, or Parting Shot will still cause the Pokémon to switch out. Holding a Shed Shell allows the Pokémon to switch out, but not flee or use Teleport. Having the Ability Run Away or holding a Smoke Ball allows the Pokémon to flee or use Teleport, but not switch.

If a wild Pokémon has Magnet Pull and the player's Steel-type Pokémon faints, if the player attempts to flee instead of sending out another Pokémon, they are unaffected by Magnet Pull.

Magnet Pull does not affect allies.

Generation VI onward

Ghost-type Pokémon are now immune to Magnet Pull (even if they are also Steel-type).

Outside of battle

From Pokémon Emerald onwards, if a Pokémon with Magnet Pull is in the first place in the party (even if fainted), then there is a 50% chance the game will force an encounter with a Steel-type Pokémon, if one is possible.
