Pokémon with this attack

The following Pokémon are currently able to learn this attack.


  • This attack was first discovered in the 0.149.0 APK.
  • The stats were updated on September 27th, 2019[1] as part of the combat-system rebalance.[2]
  • Its power was updated to 1 on November 1st, 2019, which made this move lowest non-zero power in both PVE and PVP.[3]
  • It is the Fast Attack with the lowest cooldown in the game, and generates the most energy per second.
  • The Legendary Titans can learn this move since A Colossal Discovery.
  • Unlike most Fast Attacks, Lock-On is not animated for each individual use; instead, whenever it is used, an animated target continuously moves across the opponent. This is likely due to its very short cooldown.
