Does Protean Keep In-Effect Even After Switching?

2 votes

So if Greninja with Protean used U-turn and would become Bug, would it come back on the field as a Bug after switching?

I highly doubt it. Soak and Camouflage wear off, don't they?

Unless I'm wrong baton pass is the only way to keep the stat changes when you switch. Even that is only stats not types, but even if you pass the type changes to the next poke would have to pass them back

Pretty sure Baton Pass can't pass type changes. Soak and Colour Change can't be passed, so I'd be surprised to find out that Protean can be.
