Hold Hands (Japanese: てをつなぐ Holding Hands) is a non-damaging Normal-type event-exclusive move introduced in Generation VI. It cannot be learned through normal gameplay. Vivillon was the first Pokémon to be made available with this move.

Effect

This move has no known effect in battle. When a Pokémon uses this move, it and its target ally will perform a brief animation together.

It will fail if used in a Single Battle or Horde Encounter. It will hit the target even if it has used Protect, Detect, or Spiky Shield, but will fail if the target is protected by Crafty Shield or is in the middle of a semi-invulnerable move like Fly or Dig.
