Best answer

If the foe Pokémon uses Pursuit on the same turn Volt Switch is used, Pursuit will deal normal damage if the foe is faster, or double damage if the foe is slower than the user.

Note: This also applys to U-Turn.

Baton Pass will not trigger Pursuit.

For Circle Throw, it has a decreased priority of -6. Pursuit has a priority of 0 when noone is switching out. That means Pursuit would attack before Circle Throw can throw someone out.

You could use the Circle Throw and Pursuit combo if the Pursuit user has either that Full Incense or Lagging Tail item or the Stall ability.
