e.g if my clefairy and sodowoodo where up against say typhlosion and lucario. my clefairy uses follow me and enemy typhlosion uses eruption. who get hit? lucario+clefariy+sodowoodo or just clefariy?

Best answer

Follow Me does not stop the effects of moves which hit multiple Pokémon in a battle.

Source: Bulbapedia/ Follow Me

So Eruption would hit both your Clefairy & Sudowoodo. Eruption does not affect allies, either way, so Lucario would not be hit. If Typhlosion used Earthquake, Lucario would be hit, despite Follow Me.
