From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Lock-On (Japanese: ロックオン Lock-On) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation II.
The next move made by the user of this move will not miss even if the target has used a move similar to Fly. However, if the target uses a move such as Detect the user's next move will miss. Also, if the target switches the effect of Lock-On wears off.
