Things such as long bodies or tentacles are used to bind and squeeze the target for four to five turns.


Same as before, but if a wild Pokémon uses Bind on the player's Pokémon, the player may escape if the affected Pokémon has Run Away or is holding a Smoke Ball. However, these do not allow the player to switch the Pokémon out. 

If the user of Bind is holding a Grip Claw, the duration will always be 5 turns. Also, if an affected Pokémon is holding a Shed Shell, it can switch out.
