Destiny Bond is a non-damaging Ghost-type move.

Effect

When Destiny Bond is used, if the user faints as the direct result of an attack, the Pokémon that landed the knockout hit also faints.

Destiny Bond only works if it is used immediately prior to fainting. If the user takes another turn (including 'inactive' turns such as those spent sleeping or flinching, or its turn is spent using an item), the effect disappears.

Destiny Bond does not activate from indirect damage such as weather damage, damage from Leech Seed, and Future Sight. Destiny Bond also bypasses Focus Sash, Sturdy, and Magic Guard.

In a double battle, both opposing Pokémon are potentially affected, but only the one that knocks the user out will faint. Destiny Bond has no effect if a partner Pokémon causes the user to faint.
