| Magnet Pull
Magnet Pull (Japanese: じりょく Magnetism) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Five Pokémon can have this Ability, all of which are part of an evolution family that undergoes its final evolution by leveling up at Mt. Coronet in Sinnoh or Chargestone Cave in Unova, are in the Mineral Egg Group (though one family is genderless), are Steel-type or evolve into one, and have Sturdy as a secondary Ability.
Magnet Pull traps Steel-type Pokémon, making them unable to leave battle except by holding a Shed Shell, using Baton Pass, U-turn, or Volt Switch.
In a Double Battle or Triple Battle, Magnet Pull does not affect the partner Pokémon.
In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, a Pokémon with Magnet Pull immobilizes Steel-type Pokémon that attack it directly, preventing them from moving for a few turns.
Outside of battle
From Pokémon Emerald onwards, if a Pokémon with Magnet Pull is leading the party, then the likelihood of encountering wild Steel-type Pokémon is 150% of the usual.
