PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I know that Mean Look and other such moves only work against the enemy Pokemon for as long as the user stays in battle...as far as Sun/Moon, I think I already know the answer, but I just wanted to double-check:
When Decidueye uses its signature move, Spirit Shackle, which prevents the opposing Pokemon from switching out, do the trapping effects of the move still apply if it uses U-Turn (which it can learn as a TM) or something, and switches out?
Thanks so much

The Pokemon CAN switch out

PS! Battle evidence.

Once Decidueye switches, it is like mean look. The opponent is freed.
