Effect

The target cannot switch out normally. Ignores accuracy and evasion modifiers. This effect ends when the user leaves the field.

The target may still escape by using Baton Pass, U-turn, or a Shed Shell.

Both the user and the target pass on this effect with Baton Pass.

Meta

This reflects how the games treat moves and may be somewhat idealistic.
