  • Not a TM, HM or Move Tutor move.
The user takes sure aim at the target. This ensures the next attack does not miss the target.


The next move made by the user of this move against the target will not miss, even if the target uses a move with a semi-invulnerable turn like Fly.

Lock-On does not allow the user to bypass protection moves. Lock-On's effect now lasts until the end of the next turn rather than until the user makes its next move.

Lock-On does not take precedence over Moves that make the target the center of attention, such as Follow Me. The move Lock-On now bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turnof a move such as Dig or Fly.
