Run Away (Ability)

Effect

In battle

Run Away guarantees escape from a wild Pokemon, negating any trapping move or Ability that would prevent it from escaping (such as Mean Look and its variations, Wrap and its variations, Shadow Tag, Arena Trap and Magnet Pull). Run Away allows a Pokemon affected by Ingrain to escape.

Run Away has no effect on switching out. Run Away has no effect in Trainer battles.

Until Generation V, when activated, the message "<Pokemon name> escaped using Run Away!" will appear. From Generation V onward, a banner with Run Away shows up instead.

Outside of battle

Run Away has no effect outside of battle.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon

In the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series, a Pokemon with Run Away will become terrified and run from all Pokemon when its HP is down below ½. Leaders are unaffected. It also protects against being immobilized by moves like Mean Look, or Abilities like Shadow Tag.
