Magnet Pull (Japanese: じりょく Magnetism) is an ability introduced in Generation III. As its name suggests, the Magnet Pull ability is exclusive to Pokémon that rely on the Earth's magnetic field.


In battle

Magnet Pull makes Steel Pokémon unable to Run Away. It is essentially the Steel-type counterpart of Arena Trap; however, Arena Trap works on Pokémon of any type only if that Pokémon is not a Flying type or have the ability Levitate.

Outside of battle

It makes it more probable that the player will come across Steel-type wild Pokémon, if the Pokémon with this ability is in the lead spot.
