Effect

Manual activation

Generation I

When used in the overworld while the player is in a cave or dungeon, the player is warped to the last Pokémon Center they healed at (or the player's house if they have never healed at a Pokémon Center).

Generation II onward

When used in the overworld while the player is in a cave or dungeon, the player is warped to the entrance through which the player entered the cave or dungeon. It cannot be used in Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.

The Escape Rope cannot be used to escape from Turnback Cave. Spear Pillar, the Distortion World, and the Hall of Origin are not treated as caves.

Exchange

In Anville Town, on weekends the player can give a man two Escape Ropes in exchange for a Revive.

Other uses

In Pokémon Crystal and HeartGold and SoulSilver, in the Ruins of Alph, the player requires an Escape Rope to open the hidden room in the northeastern chamber. In Pokémon Crystal, item is consumed and the player escapes as normal. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the item is not consumed and the player does not move.

Escape Rope
Main article: Escape Rope (Plasma Storm 120)

The Escape Rope was introduced as a Pokémon Tool Trainer card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Black & White Series (the Japanese BW Era) in the Plasma Storm expansion. It was later reprinted as a Full Art Secret card in the English Burning Shadows expansion (the Japanese To Have Seen the Battle Rainbow expansion).

The Escape Rope allows each player to switch their Active Pokémon with their Benched Pokémon, with the opponent switching first.
