Destiny Bond (Japanese: みちづれ Fellow Travelers) is a non-damaging Ghost-type move introduced in Generation II.

Effect

Generation II - IV

When Destiny Bond is used, if the user faints as the direct result of an attack, the Pokémon that landed the knockout hit also faints. A Pokémon defeated by this move will faint before the Pokémon that used Destiny Bond. This move's effect only works if the move is used immediately prior to fainting. Thus, if the user takes another turn, the effect disappears. This includes inactive turns such as those spent sleeping or flinching. As such, when moving before the opponent, the user has to be knocked out in the same turn by a foe moving after it. Conversely, when moving after the opponent, the user has to be knocked out during the following turn by a foe moving before it.

Destiny Bond does not activate for indirect damage such as weather damage, damage from Leech Seed and Future Sight. Destiny Bond also bypasses Focus Sash, Sturdy, and Magic Guard.

In a Double Battle, both opponents are targeted, but only the one that knocks the user out is affected. If the partner Pokémon causes the Pokémon using Destiny Bond to faint, the partner Pokémon will not be affected.

Generation V

A Pokémon defeated by this move will now faint after the Pokémon that used Destiny Bond.

In a Triple Battle, Destiny Bond affects all of the opponent's Pokémon. If a non-adjacent Pokémon used a move that damages non-adjacent Pokémon (e.g. Aerial Ace, Air Slash) and knocks out the user of Destiny Bond, that Pokémon will faint as well.
