Effects

Teleport will always fail in a Trainer battle. In battles with wild Pokémon, Teleport allows the user to flee battles.

Teleport also fails in wild battles if the user would normally be unable to flee due to a trapping move (e.g. Fire Spin) or ability (e.g. Arena Trap).

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Psychium Z and uses its Z-Power, Teleport turns into Z-Teleport and fully restores the user's HP, in addition to its usual effect as above.

Outside of battle

If the user is outside, Teleport will instantly transport you back to the last Pokémon Center you visited. It does not work in caves or buildings. In Generation 4 it does not work in any town or city, only in routes.
