Block

Status
PPPowerAccuracyTarget
5%May affect anyone adjacent to the user

Prevents the target from switching out or escaping (including via Teleport), as long as the user is in battle. Always hits, unless the target is in a semi-invulnerable turn. Targets can still switch out by using Baton Pass, U-turn, Volt Switch, or Parting Shot, or if it is hit by Roar, Whirlwind, Dragon Tail or Circle Throw. If a wild Pokémon uses Block, the player's Pokémon can escape if it has Run Away or is holding a Smoke Ball. Does not affect Ghost-types.
