Will Pursuit work against Baton Pass?

Will pursuit work on a pokemon using baton pass, since it has double the power when you switch out?

Best answer

Only if the pokemon using Pursuit is slower. Say Espeon used Baton Pass and Weavile used Pursuit. Pursuit would hit first and would only do regular damage. If Pursuit was used by an Umbreon then it would do double damage because Umbreon is slower.

Same goes for U-Turn and Volt Switch.
