Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Does it allow roaming Pokémon and the initial Nihilego to bypass trapping moves and Abilities, and if so, does it play a special animation when they flee in Generation III?
Does it allow wild Pokémon to Teleport regardless of trapping moves and Abilities?
If a player's Pokémon holding a Smoke Ball faints and the player chooses to flee instead of sending out another Pokémon, are they guaranteed to escape in Generation II?
In Generation II, does it allow the player to flee from the scripted red Gyarados?.

Generation II

If held by the player's Pokémon, fleeing from a wild Pokémon is guaranteed to succeed. It does not ignore trapping moves.

Generation III onward

If held by a Pokémon, it can flee and Teleport successfully, regardless of trapping moves and Abilities.

In Generation III and IV, if the player's Pokémon holding a Smoke Ball faints, if the player attempts to flee instead of sending out another Pokémon, they will escape without fail.

In Generation III only, the Smoke Ball plays a special animation when used.
