What happens if Perish Song is used on a Substitute? Sidnoea 17:00, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Switching back in?

If a Pokémon with Perish Song is switched out then back in, does the Perish Song count stay the same? Ztobor 13:43, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

No, a Pokémon is rid of the Perish Song effect upon being switched out. For this reason, it's quite common to see Perish Song comboed with moves such as Mean Look--Mean Look the target(s), Perish Song, defend yourself, then switch out your Pokémon on the last possible turn to secure victory. --Shiningpikablu252 16:41, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for this, I was programming an engine and right now the effects of Perish Song persist while the Pokémon is inactive. (They don't get activated, but upon switching back in, the counter keeps counting.) Ztobor 03:15, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
