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

Effect

Generations II to 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.

Destiny Bond only works if it is used immediately prior to fainting. If the user takes another turn (including 'inactive' turns such as such as those spent sleeping or flinching), the effect disappears. Destiny Bond is not an increased priority move—if the user is faster than the opponent (or otherwise moves first), Destiny Bond only lasts for the current turn; conversely, if the user moves last, it takes effect during the next turn.

Destiny Bond does not activate from 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 opposing Pokémon are potentially affected, but only the one that knocks the user out will faint. Destiny Bond has no effect if a partner Pokémon causes the user to faint.

Generation V

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

In a Triple Battle, Destiny Bond can affect any of the opponent's Pokémon, including non-adjacent Pokémon (provided it used a move that can target non-adjacent Pokémon, e.g. Aerial Ace, Air Slash).
