If I have a Ghastly on top of my party, and then I encounter a wild Pokemon that always likes to run away from me, (for example a Phanpy) if I use Mean Look on it, will the Mean Look only stop it from escaping as long as Ghastly is out, or will the Phanpy then not be able to escape anymore at all? I mean, can I recall my ghastly and use another Pokemon, without risking that the wild Pokemon can then run away?

Under most circumstances, yes, once Gastly has Mean Looked the wild Pokémon, it cannot flee. In the event of trainer battles, cannot switch out, as long as Gastly is still your active Pokémon. There is one thing though that I can think of where a Mean Looked Pokémon can get away, and that is if they know Whirlwind or Roar (which the Legendary Beasts know) but as long as they don't know those, they're stuck.

Teleport escapes Mean Look too, I think, but that shouldn't be a problem anyway.

Maybe not much of a problem, but if true, indeed worth knowing.

Thanks StealthNinjaScyther

Can't a Mean Looked Pokemon Baton Pass out of it (though it will pass the Look-trapped status to the new Pokemon)?

ML does stop Teleport.

Easy way to test this is to battle a Wild Abra, Mean Look it and watch Teleport fail...

The way Tghost worded his reply sure made it seem like he tested it. I went and double checked what he said and do you know what happened when I Mean Looked Abra? Teleport failed! So I assume that Tghost did indeed check it first.
