The opponent can't switch or flee. Flying Type Pokémon and Pokémon with the ability Levitate will be unaffected by this Ability and can switch or flee. If the opponent uses the move Baton Pass it is able to switch out for another Pokémon.
However, if the Pokémon with Arena Trap switches out, the opponent remains trapped for that turn, but can be switched out or flee on the next turn.
If a Pokémon with this Ability is in the leading spot of your party, the Pokémon Encounter Rate is increased to 200%.
