Mean Look

Status
PPPowerAccuracyTarget
5%May affect anyone adjacent to the user

Prevents the target from switching out or fleeing, until the user leaves the battle. Always hits (unless the target is in a semi-invulnerable turn). Affected Pokémon can switch out with Volt Switch, U-turn, or Baton Pass (except the switched in Pokémon will now be trapped instead), if forced to switch out by Dragon Tail or Circle Throw, or if Roared at or hit with Whirlwind. Does not affect Ghost types. If a wild Pokémon uses Mean Look on the player's Pokemon, it can only escape if it has Run Away or is holding a Smoke Ball.
