Destiny Bond and Focus Punch
== Destiny Bond and Focus Punch ==
What happens if a slower Pokémon uses Destiny Bond, then selects [[Focus Punch]] on the next turn, and is knocked out before Focus Punch activates? Does Destiny Bond take effect?
I know if the user moves after the attacker naturally due to lower speed, or selects a negative-priority skill like Avalanche or Roar, Destiny Bond activates if the user is knocked out before its turn. Also, if the user selects a positive-priority skill, whether damaging or not, the effect of Destiny Bond is immediately canceled.
