No Retreat is a Fighting-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the signature move of Falinks.


Games Description
SWSH This move raises all the user's stats but prevents the user from switching out or fleeing.


Upon usage, the user’s stats are all boosted by one stage and prevents the user from fleeing or switching out. It can only be used once and will fail if used consecutively.

If No Retreat is used while the user is already unable to escape like via Mean Look, it can be used to stack multiple boosts.

  • The only way to switch out when its effect is active is through item usage.
  • It is based on the tactics off military generals ridding their means of escape so their soldiers will fight harder, fitting Falinks’ soldier theme.
