Affects the user
  • Not a TM, HM or Move Tutor move.
The user draws attention to itself, making all targets take aim only at the user.


Follow Me makes the user the center of attention, forcing the opposing Pokémon to use their moves on the user rather than the intended target (even if it was a friendly target, unless it is a move that cannot target an opponent such as Acupressure or Helping Hand) for the rest of the turn. If a move cannot target the center of attention, it will be used on its intended target. It does not affect allies.

If the center of attention faints or switches out, it no longer draws moves.

Follow Me can draw moves with a charging turn (such as Fly and Solar Beam) if it is used on the turn the move would hit. Follow Me will draw the moves Future Sight and Doom Desire only if it used on the turn these moves are selected.

Follow Me draws Electric- and Water-type moves even if a Pokémon with Lightningrod or Storm Drain is on the field. If another Pokémon on the same team is already the center of attention, the first user takes priority; if the first user is outside of range or stops being the center of attention, the attack will be drawn to the next center of attention.

Follow Me has no effect on moves which hit multiple Pokémon in a battle. While it can be used in Single Battles, it has no effect.
