Affects the user

Baton Pass is a Normal-type move.

Effect

Baton Pass switches out the user, passing all temporary stat changes on to the Pokémon that replaces it in battle. Most volatile status conditions (such as confusion, seeding, and Curse —but not infatuation and trapping caused by moves like Mean Look or the secondary effect of Whirlpool); and volatile battle statuses (such as Substitute, Lock-On, and Ingrain) can also be passed.

Baton Pass will not change the effect of Pursuit. Baton Pass will also not pass on secondary effects of moves; for example, the effect of Minimize causing Stomp to hit at double power will not be passed, nor will the effect of Defense Curl causing Rollout and Ice Ball to hit at double power be passed. Type changes are not passed.

The switch cannot be prevented by Abilities such as Shadow Tag or Arena Trap.

The move will fail if the user is the only Pokémon in the party that is able to battle.
