Destiny Bond and Explosion

Does anything happen if you use Destiny Bond followed by Explosion? Elsa 20:33, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

I don't think it would make a difference. Both you and the defending pokemon would just probably faint like normal.- unsigned comment from Fromaster (talkcontribs)
Nope. A wild Weezing used Destiny Bond, then Explosion against my Drifblim (Ghost-type, which negates the Normal-type Explosion) and only Weezing fainted. --TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 22:40, 15 September 2008 (UTC)


So Destiny Bond won't do anything at all if you were to use it, and next turn use Memento?- unsigned comment from RonzRex (talkcontribs)

The effect wears off as soon as you make your next move. TTEchidna 20:57, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

What happens if you use it in a Double Battle then get knocked out by your other Pokemon's surf or earthquake? Do both of them faint?--Zeta 21:54, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

That... is a good question. I think it's a targeting thing, though, so if the Pokémon targeted with Destiny Bond KOs the user... TTEchidna 01:20, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Can Gallade learn Destiny Bond?

In the article about the Pokémon "Gallade", it says he can learn the move "Destiny Bond". But in the Destiny Bond article, Gallade is not mentioned. So can Gallade learn Destiny Bond, or not? - unsigned comment from Spense88 (talkcontribs) 13:48, 14 April 2009

Yes and no. Ralts can learn Destiny Bond through breeding as an egg move, mentioned in this article, and if Ralts is male, it can eventually evolve into a Gallade.--Totodilesentret!Talk to me. 18:54, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


Is that trivia even remotely necessary? Malake256 18:21, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

I'd say no. I'll remove it. --AndyPKMN 19:45, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Targeting is wrong

Maybe it has changed over generations, so i won't change it. But, in 4th gen at least, Destiny Bond targets self, not enemies.


Wobbuffet used destiny bond in DP173 on Professor Oak's lecture. It is missing on the Anime section.
