Does Lock-On Carry when opponent switched out?

0 votes

I've been confused about the move Lock-On. I have a Smeargle with Spore, Lock-On, Sheer Cold and Extreme Speed. I will put them to sleep first, Lock-On, then Sheer Cold for a OHKO, BUT people will switch out their Pokemon. I'm wondering does Lock-On carry to the next Pokemon? I didn't think it did, but I played someone who beat ALL SIX of my Pokemon this way when I switched out. Are they extremely lucky? Did they hack? Please Help!!!

Thanks,  I don't think he hacked because it was in the April Friendly.  Must have gotten EXTREMELY lucky:/
