Baton Pass (Japanese: バトンタッチ Baton Touch) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II.

Effect

Generation II to IV

Baton Pass switches out the user, passing all temporary stats increases and decreases on to the Pokémon that replaces it in battle. Most volatile status conditions (such as confusion, seeding, and curse, but not infatuation) and volatile battle statuses (such as Substitute, Lock-On, and Ingrain) can also be passed.

No matter what type of Poké Ball the user was captured in, the animation will always display a normal Poké Ball.

Baton Pass will not trigger Pursuit.

Generation V

The effects of moves that prevent ordinary switching, such as Mean Look, are no longer passed on to the incoming Pokémon.

The correct type of Poké Ball the user was caught with is now displayed in the animation.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

Baton Pass makes the user switch places with another Pokémon in the room. If the user has any stat changes, those effects will be copied to the other Pokémon.
