→Generation V: wording
When used from the Bag in the overworld, it prevents [[wild Pokémon]] with a lower level than the first conscious member of the party from appearing for 250 steps.
Starting in [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2]], when the Max Repel's effect wears off,
it will bring up a dialogue box saying "Repel's effect wore off! Use another?". Selecting yes will use another Max Repel, preventing the player from needing to stop and reopen their bag.
