Had an opponent use Disable on me, and it ended after a single turn.

Swoobat used Calm Mind. Muk used Sludge Bomb. Swoobat is disabled no more!

Same as before, but Disable lasts 4-7 turns.
Confirmed the following for Petal Dance, so I expect Outrage and Thrash are the same.

Meganium used Petal Dance! Opponent is KO'd!

Trainer is about to send in _____. Would you like to switch?
Normally, the user cannot switch Pokemon when locked into a move like that, even by the Shift method. I'm afraid Bulbapedia only says this:

Once selected, even if it misses, the user will only be able to use Petal Dance, and will not be able to switch out.
I do know from the competitive scene however. I realise anecdotal evidence is not preferable, but it's actually a rather critical competitive element- sacrificing one Pokemon if they use Outrage so you can bring in a steel type for a safe set up, and being that they're locked into the move, there's not much they can do...

But bleh.
Nitpicks.
