Spider Web is a trapping Bug-type move.

Spider Web prevents the target from switching out or fleeing (including via Teleport). It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly. Spider Web's effect only applies as long as the Pokémon that used it remains in battle.

The affected Pokémon can still switch out via Baton Pass, but in that case, the Pokémon that switches in will now be affected. If a Pokémon traps a target with Spider Web and then switches with Baton Pass, the target will no longer be trapped.

If the affected Pokémon is affected by Roar or Dragon Tail, they will still be switched out.

If a wild Pokémon uses Spider Web on the player's Pokémon, the player will be unable to escape, unless the player's Pokémon is holding a Smoke Ball.

Pokémon affected by Spider Web can escape if the Pokémon has the Ability Run Away.

Pokémon affected by Spider Web can switch out with U-turn or Volt Switch.

Spider Web does not affect Ghost-type Pokémon.
