Entrainment (Japanese: なかまづくり Befriend) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation V. It is the inverse of Role Play.

Entrainment changes the target's Ability to match the user's. The effect lasts until the target is switched out or the battle ends. It does not work on Pokémon with the Truant, Zen Mode, Multitype, Illusion, Flower Gift, Trace, Imposter or Stance Change Abilities.
