Shadow Tag
Flavor text
Prevents the foe from escaping

Shadow Tag is an Ability. Two Pokémon can have this Ability.


In battle[]

Shadow Tag prevents all foes from fleeing (including Teleport) or switching out while the Pokémon with this Ability is on the field.

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

If a wild Pokémon has Shadow Tag and the Player's Pokémon faints, if the player attempts to flee instead of sending out another Pokémon they are unaffected by Shadow Tag.

Pokémon with Shadow Tag are immune to the effects of Shadow Tag.
