Teleport (Japanese: テレポート Teleport) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation I. It was TM30 in Generation I.

Effect

In battle

151Mew.png This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: What happens if the user is under the effect of Ingrain? Can opponents in a Horde Encounter successfully use Teleport?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

In wild battles, the user flees and the battle ends. In Trainer battles, Teleport always fails.

Teleport will fail if the user is afflicted by a trapping move (including partially trapping moves), such as Mean Look and Bind. Teleport will fail if trapped by a trapping Ability (i.e. if an opponent has Shadow Tag, if an opponent has Arena Trap and the user is grounded, or if an opponent has Magnet Pull and the user is Steel-type). If a Pokémon is holding a Smoke Ball, Teleport will succeed regardless of trapping moves and Abilities.

Teleport can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point if any of the moves Confusion, Double Team, Kinesis or Psychic was used in the prior turn.

Teleport will fail in SOS Battles if the user currently has an ally, even if it's holding a Smoke Ball.

If powered up by a Psychium Z into Z-Teleport, the user regains all of its HP.

Outside of battle

Prior to Generation VII, Teleport warps the player to the last healing spot visited (a Pokémon Center, the player's home, etc.). Teleport can only be used outside, with the same restrictions as Fly, except it cannot be used in towns and cities starting in Generation IV and there is no choice in where to go.
