The Cave of Dragonflies ASB Database

Arena Trap

Summary: Prevents opponents from switching out, hinders attempts to dodge the Pokémon, and allows the Pokémon to block moves requiring significant movement. Does not affect opponents in the air.


A Pokémon with this ability is extremely capable of moving about in its environment and is easily able to maneuver around an opponent to block them from escaping the arena. However, being flightless, the Pokémon with this ability are not able to block the efforts of a flying or levitating Pokémon to escape. While a Pokémon with this ability is in play, no other Pokémon may leave the arena, unless they are listed as either flying or levitating Pokémon and thus able to avoid being trapped by this ability. In addition, it is much more difficult to dodge attacks made by these Pokémon, and attacks that require a great deal of movement, such as Double Team or Agility, may be blocked by this Pokémon if it is commanded to do so, as they are able to move very rapidly to obstruct the opponent's path.
