'''Suction Cups''' (Japanese: '''きゅうばん''' ''Suction Cups'') is an [[Ability]] introduced in [[Generation III]]. Only three {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} have this Ability.
 
==Effect==
Suction Cups firmly anchors the body. This Ability prevents the opponent from forcing a switch, or in the wild ending the===In battle, with {{m|Roar}}, {{m|Whirlwind}}, {{m|Dragon Tail}}, or {{m|Circle Throw}}. ===
This Ability prevents other Pokémon from forcing the Pokémon with this Ability to [[recall|switch out]] or [[escape|flee]] with {{cat|Moves that switch the target out|a move}} (e.g. {{m|Roar}}, {{m|Circle Throw}}, etc.) or item ([[Red Card]]). Suction Cups does not affect the Pokémon switching out manually, or switching out or fleeing with its own move (e.g. {{m|Baton Pass}}, {{m|Teleport}}, etc.) or item ([[Eject Button]]).
 
Even if the Pokémon with this Ability is {{type|Ghost}} or holds a [[Shed Shell]] or [[Smoke Ball]], it cannot be forced to switch or flee. If a Pokémon with this Ability is under the effect of {{m|Ingrain}}, Suction Cups will take priority over Ingrain if it would be forced to switch or flee.
 
If a Pokémon with Suction Cups hits a Pokémon holding a Red Card, the Red Card will still activate and be consumed, but fails to cause that Pokémon to switch out or flee.
 
===Outside of battle===

From {{game|Emerald}} onwards, if a Pokémon with Suction Cups is in first place in the player's [[party]] (even if [[fainting|fainted]]), bites will occur more often while [[fishing]]. {{a|Sticky Hold}} has the same effect.
