Affects the user

Baton Pass is a Normal-type move. It switches the user with one of its teammates, passing along any stat changes (both positive and negative). It may also pass on confusion or any effects of Nightmare, Leech Seed, Curse, Substitute, Aqua Ring, Ingrain, Lock-On, Mind Reader, Perish Song, or Magnet Rise that are present on the user.

The switch cannot be prevented by effects such as Mean Look or Arena Trap.
