Bind is an offensive Normal-type move.

Bind deals damage and traps the user for 4-5 turns, preventing it from switching out. Additionally, it inflicts 1/8 of the target's maximum HP of damage at the end of every turn the target is trapped.

If the user is holding a Grip Claw, Bind will always trap the target for 5 turns. If the user is holding a Binding Band, the residual damage is increased from 1/8 to 1/6 of the target's total HP.

If a Pokémon affected by Bind uses Rapid Spin, it will be freed of the trapping and damaging effects of Bind. If a Pokémon affected by Bind holds a Shed Shell, it can switch out freely but will still receive residual damage at the end of the turn.

As of 1.0.4, it can be taught by the Physical Move Tutor of Tsukinami Village Hotel for four Red Shards. In 1.03, it could be taught by the Ultimate Move Tutor in Tsukinami Village, at a cost of 4 of each type of shard.
