The power of this attack move is doubled if it's used on a target that's switching out of battle


Pursuit will now hit any adjacent opponent that attempts to switch out, regardless of who it originally targeted. This effect bypasses redirection effects such as Follow Me.

If the target is using U-turn, Volt Switch or Parting Shot, Pursuit's special effect will activate only if the user of Pursuit would usually act later than the target (its power will only be doubled in that case).
